    I have to migrate or clone or copy the AD from a forest (W2003 on mixed
    mode) to another forest (W2003 on mixed mode too). The new DCRoot will have
    to replace the first. The problem is I think I cannot use ADMT (it needs the
    target domain in native mode) neither the SIDHistory attribute (used only in
    native mode).

    Do you know how to do the copy, respecting the user privileges, the account

    Thankyou for your interest.

    We have to change the domain name and the company have buyed newest
    computers to migrate the actual PDC to them. The problem is that the
    organisation is still using NT4 BDCs and because of this, is necessary to
    maintain the mixed mode.

    Abbreviating, the company want to change the actual PDC in use to the new
    PDC with a new domain name (new forest) and we have to move or copy or
    migrate... the AD (user accounts, trusts,...) from the actual to the new.

    So if I understand correctly, you want a clone of your existing AD
    domain.........rename the "cloned" domain as required correct?

    Will the "cloned" domain also have NT4 DCs in that domain. Is the NT4 DCs
    the reason you cant move to Native??

    rendom works very well in native mode on 2003 you know!

    Yes. You have uderstand well ( I cannot move to Native mode the new PDC
    because it will use the NT4 DCs actually used in the original forest. I will
    change the actual PDC with the new).

    Your proposed solution will be perfect if "rendom" could be used in W2003
    mixed mode (I will investigate it) and of course, if this application
    modifies all the "fields" necessary to maintain the correct running of all
    accounts, trusts,... Do you know about this?

    Thankyou very much for your interest.
