Due to a new Software, I need to merge 3 different domains (same company) into a new big AD in a life environment (no or at least as less as possible time-out, loss…etc.)
The existing domains are as follow:
3 2003r2 servers + 2 coming soon (print server 2k3 and dpm on 2008 )
-AD/DNS/DHCP on the 1st
-File server* + AD replica on the second
-Exchange 2003* + AD Replica on the third
->Exchange users are in a separate OU, as not all AD users have an Exchange account.
1 2k3 r2
1 2k3 r2
*the File server and Exchange on city.domain.com are accessed through shares and Outlook 2010 from some users in city2 and city3
Now I would like to merge the city-city2 and city3 into ONE AD. This could be a new domain (let’s say country.domain.com or whatever), or (but probably not that a good idea) into one of the existing one.
As I’m the only IT to manage the whole sh…system, I would like a trick to avoid me travel through the 3 cities to join the PCs into the new domain…
How should I best go for it? Any good advise?
