User migration issues for NT4 to AD2003 forest

Discussion in 'Server Migration' started by Eric Scherlinger, Sep 24, 2007.

  1. Hi,

    Here is my problem :
    I'm migrating all user, groups and computers from my NT4 domain to a 2003
    domain in my company forest.
    I'm currently doing migration test before going prod and when i migrate a
    user from the NT4 to the 2003 domain the user upn use the domain name of the
    root domain and not my domain name.
    I get in place of

    I have no right on the root domain and i've been using ADMT v2 & v3 and the
    problem is the same.

    Have you any idea why when i migrate user i get the root domain UPN ?

  2. Hello,

    Thank you for using newsgroup!

    That is by design behaviour. All the usrs migrated from another domain will
    be added with Root domain UPN.

    Thanks & Regards,

  3. Thanks for the reply mike,

    It seems i'll need to create a script to change the UPN of all migrated
    count unless you have an other solution?

    By the way when I try to migrate computer and local profiles the process
    change the user right on the profile for the new domain but when the user try
    to connect he create a second profile anyway.
    If i connect with an administrator account i can see 2 profiles
    newdomain/user.

    Have you ever had that problem ?

    Regards

    Eric

  5. Hello,

    You can use ldifde to export the user with UPN attribute, then modify
    erveryone user in the file to be as below:

    dn: CN=Jane Doe,OU=Staff,DC=microsoft,DC=com
    changetype: modify
    replace: userprincipalname
    userprincipalname: NewUPNName
    -

    Use ldife to import the attribute.

    More about using ldifde information, refer to the following KB article:
    Using LDIFDE to import and export directory objects to Active Directory
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/237677/en-us

    For the userprofile problem, I think you have a failure of migration on
    computer. Based on my research, migratiing computer account requires that
    computer is online and restart. Please check the migration log, to see if
    there is error occurs.
