Hi all,

I met a problem when trying to move groups from one domain to another.

My first question is when moving group from domain to domain, must the
group under OU? Or must I provide the OU in 'sdn' and 'ddn'?

Here is my situation, the group is directly under domain, not under any
OU in source; and I want to move it to an existing OU of another

So here is my original command:
movetree /start /s source_domain_DSA /d target_domain_DSA /sdn
CN=group_name,DC=... /ddn CN=group_name,OU=Support,DC=...

It cannot work. So temporily, I move the group to an OU in source
domain, and then user command line like following:
movetree /start /s source_domain_DSA /d target_domain_DSA /sdn
CN=group_name,OU=Operations, DC=... /ddn

It's working. But it need extra manual job to move the group under an
OU first. Is there any other solutions?

My second quesiont is can I change the group name in MoveTree command?
I mean provide a different CN name in ddn? I tried to do it and not
working, I want to confirm that this is not possible?

Thank you so much.
