    First...excuse my lack in knowing the right terminology in the following

    My company (a W2k forest with a few child domains) purchased another company
    from a large corportation that has many smaller companies. That corporation
    (the forest) broke the link between the child company (a W2K domain) that we

    I am now trying to utilize the ADMT v3 to migrate
    users/groups/computers/Sid's to our domain and forest--an inter-forest
    migration. I've only heard that I need to set up a transitive trust...how?
    The literature I've read states I can only accomplish this if the source
    domain is a part of a forest. So far all I can accomplish is a two-way
    non-transitive trust which, when trying out ADMTv3, will not migrate Sid's
    and who-knows what else.

    I've also heard that I could "recover an orphaned domain" ...that this would
    allow me to seize all roles and that would then allow us to accomplish a
    transitive trust...that the tool to utilize would be ntdsutil.exe ...I can
    find no direct and good literature on this.

    Please help direct me to literature or anything worthwhile (maybe a webcast?).
