Big Project: AD Upgrade via Migration and Domain Rename

So, we are in the middle of our first REALLY BIG project in a while. We are moving from our current Windows 2003 domain to a new Windows 2008 R2 domain. Included in this move is a domain rename. Whew!

We got two new servers to be our Win2008 DCs. They are all configured with the new domain and we are now running test migrations using ADMT 3.2.

We are using BriComp Computers, LLC as a consultant on this project that they have been great! Brian Ricks knows his stuff, has been helpful, available, and flexible with us. I am very excited to have him as part of our team for this (and likely future) projects.

I know the actual migration of our AD resources is going to be a big part of this, probably with hiccups along the way. But, I am excited about this and confident that we will squash any bugs that come along.
