Active Directory spin off

Active Directory migration
I have a company that is spinning off a big portion of their company into an individual company. This company will be completely independent of the source company but all of the relevant servers will need to be moved to the new company IT infrastructure approximately 90 or so. Several of these servers run custom applications that rely heavily on AD for security and resources. These servers need to work and cannot be rebuilt from scratch. The idea is to migrate AD to a new domain of the new company so all of the application will function properly. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Since this company is completely independant, you will have to unpromote your domain controllers and create a new forest. If you still need AD functionality between the two sites, you need to create another domain in the forest, and work with domain trusts to get them to communicate.

If the applications depend heavily on AD, you will need to update the AD or LDAP settings in each application to make sure that they are connecting to the right domain and server.
