Example: Completing Post-Migration Tasks

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2

Applies to: Active Directory Migration Tool 3.2 (ADMT 3.2)

The post-migration team of Contoso Corporation starts the post-migration tasks during the first week of the migration. The members of the team examine the migration log after the first group of migrations is completed on the first day. They analyze the migration log and define the action that is required to migrate any accounts for which they find errors. This way, the migration team can continue the migration without interruption.

During the second week of the migration process, the deployment team verifies that global groups have returned from universal group to global group status after the migration of users has completed. After the member servers are migrated, the deployment team runs the Security Translation Wizard to remove the source domain security identifiers (SIDs) from the access control lists (ACLs) of the member servers. Finally, the members of the deployment team decommission the Africa domain at the end of the second week by removing Active Directory or AD DS from the domain controllers in the Africa domain. They then migrate the domain controllers to the EMEA domain as member servers.
