    hello...

    I need to restructure my entire lan topology. We have main nt 4.0 dc and new
    s2003 root domain. New s2003 domain is called "studio.ad" and old nt 4.0
    domain is "ntskok".

    But, we need to buy new servers for new active directory and exchange
    server. I want to configure new root domain "skolskaknjiga.local" on new
    server. How I can move exsisting domain "studio.ad" to be child domain in new
    "skolskaknjiga.local"? I want name space host.studio.skolskaknjiga.local

    thanks

  2. You can not create the child before creating the parent.

    Using new hardware you can setup the skolskaknjiga.local root domain and the
    child domain would be named studio.skolskaknjiga.local and use ADMT to
    migrate you users to the proper domain.

    because i have replication dc for my current s2003 I can use this scenario. I
    will delete dc role on my current root domain s2003 and again create it but
    with "create new child domain" option. User will autenticate on replication
    partner.

    after this migration my user log on to to new child domain. But, will user
    retain theirs local profiles when logon to new chil domain
    studio.skolskaknjiga.local or I need copy profiles from old "studio.ad" to
    new domain profile? This will be big job for me if I need to copy this
    manualy.

    thanks

  6. after this migration my user log on to to new child domain. But, will user
    they will get a new profile when they log into the new domain.

    I need copy profiles from old "studio.ad" to
    As far as I know you will have to do this manually. Unless you are good with
    scripting.

  7. you cannot merge domains from different forest into one forest

    the only option is migration.... (target domain must have a different domain
    to be able to create a trust)
