We used the Quest tools to do our NT4 to W2K migration. We have not tried to merge two Ads though. I would bring both domains up to the same OS and patch level before trying anything else. kl -----Original Message----- From: windows2000-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:windows2000-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Martin, Eddie Sent: Thursday, December 02, 2004 12:03 PM To: windows2000@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [windows2000] Merging 2 AD Domains Hello all, Our company just bought out another company. We are currently using Windows Server 2003, the other company is using 2000 Server (which I believe they are going to have to upgrade to 2003). As you probably have figured out already we are going to have to merge our AD Forests and Exchange Information together. We are currently using Exchange 5.5. I found this company http://wm.quest.com/products/migrationmanagerad/ but am not sure if this is the best option. Has anyone gone through a merger before or tried any other products that may do this?
