Migration Manager for Active Directory

Restructure and consolidate your Active Directory with ZeroIMPACT

As mergers and acquisitions increase, Active Directory (AD) consolidation and restructuring is becoming more complex. You must plan carefully so that you don’t miss key dependencies or overlook critical resources and user groups that must be migrated. Over half of all migrations fail, but you can complete yours accurately when you’re armed with the right AD migration tools to restructure and consolidate with no impact to end users.

The native tools available are limited. Migration Manager for Active Directory provides coexistence capabilities, streamlined project management and business-critical support to help you deliver ZeroIMPACT AD migrations. Your end users maintain secure access to workstations, resources and email throughout the entire migration. Migration Manager for Active Directory helps you migrate your AD with no downtime, no data loss, no stress.

Features

Migrate with no downtime

Restructure your AD during business hours, reducing the administrator workloads with no adverse effect on user productivity. Move all types of objects including users, groups, computers, volumes, printers, contacts, organizational units, network topology (e.g., sites, subnet, site links) as well as directory permissions.

Complete migration planning

Plan your migration by staging users, scheduling workstation moves and updating permissions. Control any migration scenario, from simple Active Directory improvements to a complete restructuring of your entire domain. Easily mirror your production environment to a test lab to ensure that all processes are effective and safe before they are applied.

Robust project management

Manage your migration with confidence through a robust project management interface, advanced delegation capabilities, numerous reporting options, granular undo functionality, full rollback, multi-agent architecture, distributed resource processing and permissions updating.

Automated, parallel processing

Automate the migration and enable parallel processing to save valuable time and ensure that your network has zero downtime.

Automatic updates

Save time and reduce risk by automatically updating permissions and resources, including Active Directory, SharePoint, Exchange, Internet Information Services (IIS), file and print servers, SQL Server, cluster servers and the System Management Server (SMS) from Microsoft. You can also update NTFS security, shares and more.

Secure execution

Use “test mode” to verify the accuracy and security of your migration plan. Then optimize your post-migration environment, preserving passwords and removing source accounts and related references
