Advice re possible domain migration
Without getting into too many specifics, we have a number of needs / annoying problems that can be solved in 3 ways.
1) A series of dirty hacks.
2) Migrating accounts, servers and data from one of our domains to the other.
3) Building a new 2008 domain and migrating accounts, servers and data from both domains to the new one.
All are doable, but I'm leaning towards #3 despite it involving the most work. I can build the new domain under Xen and migrate user accounts and data to the new domain and get everything well-polished before I do a final account/permission sync and robocopy and make it live. Being able to do the bulk of the work without interfering with everyday end-users makes this rather attractive.
