    Hello everyone, thanks for taking the time to read this post.
    I have this new customer that has a Windows Server 2012 onsite.The Active directory domain they have is not only for them, in this DC there are 4 other companies separated by sites. So all 4 companies join the same domain.
    There are about 50 workstations joined to this domain..
    This is what I have thought but I’m very open to suggestions
    1.- Export all users, policies, etc from the domain controller.
    2.- Demote it
    3.- Spin a new Domain controller (Active directory)
    4.- Import the data from the previous domain
    5.- Use User profile Wizard from ForensIT to migrate users profiles

    Is this a good idea??
    Let me know..
    thx
