Migrate with no downtime
Restructure your AD during business hours, reducing the administrator workloads with no adverse effect on user productivity. Move all types of objects including users, groups, computers, volumes, printers, contacts, organizational units, network topology (e.g., sites, subnet, site links) as well as directory permissions.
Complete migration planning
Plan your migration by staging users, scheduling workstation moves and updating permissions. Control any migration scenario, from simple Active Directory improvements to a complete restructuring of your entire domain. Easily mirror your production environment to a test lab to ensure that all processes are effective and safe before they are applied.
Robust project management
Manage your migration with confidence through a robust project management interface, advanced delegation capabilities, numerous reporting options, granular undo functionality, full rollback, multi-agent architecture, distributed resource processing and permissions updating.
Automated, parallel processing
Automate the migration and enable parallel processing to save valuable time and ensure that your network has zero downtime.
Automatic updates
Save time and reduce risk by automatically updating permissions and resources, including Active Directory, SharePoint, Exchange, Internet Information Services (IIS), file and print servers, SQL Server, cluster servers and the System Management Server (SMS) from Microsoft. You can also update NTFS security, shares and more.
Secure execution
Use “test mode” to verify the accuracy and security of your migration plan. Then optimize your post-migration environment, preserving passwords and removing source accounts and related references

The 5 FSMO roles are:
  • Schema Master – one per forest.
  • Domain Naming Master – one per forest.
