Due to acquisitions/merger I am looking for the options to see how to join\nour domain to our parent companyâ€™s forest. We have windows 2000 domain with\ntwo domain controllers, 1 exchange 2000 server, SQL 2000, and Windows 2000\nNAS server for file server. We have a two way trust set up at this time with\nour parent company.\n\nWe also have other sister companies which will be joining the parent\ncompanyâ€™s forest . They are also windows 2000 domain and similar set up as\nours. We also have external trust set up with the sister companies for\nresource sharing.\n\nAll domains needs to be able to keep their own group policy etc., when we\njoin our parent companyâ€™s forest.\n\nWhat will be best way to accomplish this? Should we move each domain to\nwindows 2003 domain and use AD renaming tool? How is ADMT2 will play out in\nthis scenario? Please give me some guidance.
