    Hello,

    Our company is going to upgrade their servers and wants to change its domain too, is there a way for (IT-Support) to migrate the workstations (XP) to a new domain without going to each PC and doing these tasks such as: Dis-join from old domain, rejoin to a new domain + copy contents of users to the new domain?

    Is there a solution for this many thanks!

    Regards,

    Saad

    Yes and no, you can use the ADMT to migrate users from one AD environment to another at the domain controller level. As far as changing domain membership on that many PCs no there is no easy way other than using a script but even then you still need to rejoin the PCs to the new domain and migrate the profiles. There are tools out there that can do it, but I know they are not cheap.

    Like HSchronic said, just use a script and migrate the profiles to the new domain.
    If one global profile is what you need, just create one and apply it to the users through gp.
    You could use a script for that too...
