Help moving a single user from a child to a parent domain [message #156038] Tue, 09 June 2009 15:03 Go to next message

Hello,

I have sent some questions before, but maybe didnt explain myself. I
appreciate all that have sent info.

I have a user who has had a lateral transfer. The new dept. is in the
parent domain. Their old dept was in the child domain.
I need to:

1) Move them form their old OU inthe child domain to their new OU in the
Parent Domain

2) I need to keep their user profile settings on their PC so when they log
on to their new domain account, their settings can be the same.

3) I need to preserve their email account, messages, and calendar entries.
The Exchange server has a single message store, and none of their account
info changes, so I believe this will be transparent, but I do need to
concern myself with any local PST files they may have created. I am
guessing when they log on with their new account, and I preserve their
profile, then Outlook should reconnect to their mailbox. Correct???


This is for single users sporatically. Some have suggested ADMT, etc but
isnt this for mass migrations.

Any help please. I am sure this has been done.


Thanks again

Gene

This was already responded to. As said, yes, you can use ADMT for a single
user. It will also do 1000's of users. ADMT will also translate the local
profile so the migrated user can logon to it and use their old profile.
Otherwise, if you use movetree, you would have to migrate the profile with
USMT or do a copy in the local computer properties, advanced, user profile
area. Outlook should find the mailbox through AD, as long as AD is
functioning properly across the parent to child domain, that is if there is
only one EXchange server. If you need to move the mailbox, then you can use
Exmerge for 2003 or movemailbox command in 2007 to move it. Outlook will
also find the mailbox after the move.

You're welcome. I thought you already moved it, based on your other thread.
So it was a test account. That's good you are at least testing it first.
Download and use ADMT 3.1:

To add about Exchange, if intraorg, you can simply move the mailbox within
the 2003 ESM to the other server, or use the movemailbox command in 2007.

Thank you.

It was not conveyed that AMDT could do one user.

I also tried movetree with a test account, and the local profile on the
computer got moved also. I did not have AMDT installed on the domain
controller, but will look into doing so.

Thanks for your reply,

Gene

Ace,
Thanks. Will ADMT 3.1 work if I install on Server 2003, or will I need ADMT
3.0. ADMT 3.1 states Server 2008, but I was not sure if it will also
install on 2003 too.
