Professional IT staffs prefer that an enterprise network operate as a static entity. Even minor changes to a network typically involve lengthy planning, difficult compromises, extensive testing, and more than a little guesswork. Even with careful planning, there will be issues, misconfigurations, and even outright failures in parts of the network, requiring many hours of research, analysis, experimentation, and re-configuration. This whitepaper examines the challenges of network change, explains the steps required to break off a part of a Windows Server/Active Directory network and integrate it with another, and recommends the use of a migration plan and tools for the project.
