Windows Active Directory user migration tool

IT teams are entrusted to make changes to the Active Directory (AD) when an organization goes through an acquisition or a merger. In these cases, the two forests or domains are combined into one, as it can be costly to maintain two separate AD infrastructures. As a result, the IT admins are tasked with migrating users across domains or forests to enable sharing of resources. The AD migration process is critical, as any disruptions could result in the end users not having the appropriate levels of access to their workstations and other resources.

The AD migration tool (ADMT) helps admins securely execute the necessary operations to move AD objects to a different domain. It minimizes the risks associated with AD migration and keeps workstations, emails, and resources secure after migration. ManageEngine ADManager Plus, an ADMT, enables admins to migrate AD user objects and their attributes between AD domains and forests with a few clicks.

Highlights of using ADManager Plus for AD migration

ADManager Plus eliminates the need to toggle between multiple applications to manage and generate reports on the AD. It provides a centralized console where admins can manage multiple domains seamlessly. This AD migration tool:

  • Migrates all user accounts with their respective attributes, along with the password, OU hierarchy and SIDHistory attribute.
  • Maintains users' group memberships and migrates associated groups.
  • Updates the domain and domain controller user rights for the migrated users.
  • Retains access permissions after migration, which eliminates any security gap that can be exploited by attackers.
  • Preserves and manages passwords for all migrated users without comprising on security.
  • Manages naming conflicts automatically with pre-configured naming formats.
  • Delegates the user migration operations to non-admin users in a few clicks.
