Restructuring Microsoft® Windows NT® 4.0 operating system domains to an Active Directory® directory service forest involves migrating the contents of a number of Windows NT 4.0 domains into a smaller number of Active Directory domains. By restructuring your environment to an Active Directory forest, you can take advantage of new and enhanced Active Directory features, while reducing the complexity of your organization and the associated administrative costs.
