Re: Migrating to new domain

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



Users will need to access the shares no matter which side of the migration they are on. I will look into the trusts and see how to do that. I just thought that you could not have multiple domains on the same vlans. We will be doing a clean install of OpenLDAP also so we can actually add the users as we go there too.

I had thought about the NFS mount deal or keeping a 5-minute rsync going to keep files in sync. As for the profiles I am not too much concerned about users on either side of the migration since I would have to move all the users on a specific BDC once I move that BDC server to the new domain.

As long as we can have multiple domains on the various vlan's at one time without issue then this just got alot simpler. It means I can test on a semi-live environment rather than a totally segregated one. Thanks for the input.

We will be upgrading to the latest Fedora with samba/ldap. With this we will be recreating our domain fresh to get rid of alot of old junk not needed and add in new features. We do use roaming profiles also.

We have roughly 10 BDC's that are setup as home servers for our end that house shares/roaming profiles/my documents for them. I know when we move a BDC to the new domain we will need to remove all of the end users connected to that machine and rejoin them to the new domain. I just don't want to have to rejoin all 200+ users at once.

The new and old BDC's could share the same files so the users could still share files no matter if they were moved or not. Would it be beneficial to just create new roaming profiles on the new setup and just copy over their firefox/thunderbird profiles to the new setup or should I migrate profiles to the new system too?
