Do my desktops need to be powered up when using ADMT

    We are going to use ADMT to move to 2003. We are confused about wether we
    need to have the desktops powered up so the computer accounts can move, or
    will they move when they login on Monday morning.

  2. Hi Larry,

    Thanks for your posting here.

    ADMT will dispatch a agent to each workstation to migrate computer
    accounts. The agent will stop the Netlogon service on each migrated
    workstation and change the domain membership and modify the items selected
    for translation.

    So you need to keep the client online.

    In addition, all the migrated computers will be rebooted to complete the
    migration process. So before migration begins, all users of computers to be
    migrated should save their work and log off.

    After Computer migration, you can logon the clients with the target domain
    user account.

    I would like to recommend that you refer to the following documents for
    more information.
