  • Transferring users on new Domain controller

    How can I transfer the Domains users to a new Domain Controller ?

    My present Domain controller server is giving frequent problems. I am planning to install a new Domain Controller Server, can I migrate the existing domain users to the new Domain controller (with a new Domain name) without impacting their profiles and rights.

    You can use Hyena to copy users to another computer by selecting them in the right window, right-clicking and choose Copy Users To.

    This will create new accounts, though, and will not keep permissions and such in place.

    If you don't need to create a new domain, you might consider installing the controller in your current domain and let it synch with the other controller, then take the other controller offline. This should make things much easier.
