You’re the IT guy and the company has been bought, changed names, or your just simply cleaning up old Ailing domain that should have gone years ago. There are a few things you need to do before seeking out quotes for software and beginning your Active Directory Migration. A few questions to ask:

  • How many users will be migrated?
  • How many mailboxes will be migrated?
    • How much Email Data do you have?
  • How many Domains will be migrated?
  • What time frame you want to complete?

You now have your Software now what do we need to know before we start migrating.

  • What Applications talk to AD and how?
    • Are they LDAP?
    • Can they be configured with multiple domains?
    • Contacting the Vendor sometimes will help with these questions.
  • Do you have a List?
    • Users
    • Groups
    • Computers
    • Users to Computers they use
    • Users to Shared Mailboxes they use

Having these things ahead of time will help you and your consultant move forward faster and more efficient.
