Best Practices and prerequisites for AD Migration From Server 2008 SP1 32 bit to Server 2016 64 bit RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Friends,

    I need to migrate AD from Server 2008 SP1 32 bit to Server 2016 Standard 64 bit. 

    At present, my domain controller (for the instance we can call it as test.contoso.com) its a child domain of contoso.com. But the parent domain is already disconnected from the current infrastructure. Eventhough Forest wide master role (Schema master and domain naming master) is still shown as hold by contoso.com. I would  like to migrate the Ad from test.contoso.com server 2008 to server 2016 without any issue. What are the best practices for it. 

    *** I Want to make test.contoso.com to take full fsmo role holder.  How could I achieve it?

    *** If I want to change the name of new domain to techglobs.com and want to migrate ad from test.contoso.com, what are the best practices? 

    Please advice step by step for the migration.
