Moving Users from one domain to another

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.active_directory (More info?)

I would like some advice on how to move users from one Active Directory
Domain to another.

I have just started with a company who have asked for Active Directory to be
installed. Currently the have one DC which has been setup with AD, the
domain is called "xxx.local". They have since installed Live Communication
Server onto it and have created users for this.

I have run ldifde and exported the users to a csv file.

My question is :

If I want to move the users to a domain called yyy.local what do I need to
change in the csv file so I can import it into the AD.

Thanks
Paul

    The others are suggesting you use ADMT (AD Migration Tool)
    because when you export and import users (e.g., with LDIF or CSV
    files) you are really creating new users, rather than truly moving them.

    One might also ask you why you wish to move them?

    Occasionally there are good reasons, but not every
    such plan has considered all of the options.

    Consider using ADMT v2 to move users instead of using csv file
