Migrating On-Prem Active Directory and MECM Server to a New Domain


Hi All,

Hi everyone! We are planning on migrating our on-prem Windows Active Directory, including all users/devices and the MECM Server, to a new domain. What are some challenges/considerations essential for a smooth transition, especially for the MECM server? Has anyone done it or shared any tips/gotcha moments? Anything would be super helpful.

    If only the ad server migrated, take care of your server name and backup. Ensure all permissions are retained and the container is extended. I hope server names will not get changed, and there will be no change on the firewall and network

    Corjan de Vos, can I migrate the Collections and applications?
    I built a new sccm; now the issue is with the task sequence. In the old sccm environment, the renaming of the computer was working fine. But now, on the new one, it’s not working

    Tboz Tboz, we created a powershell script to export all apps and packages together with the content. Collections were a bit of a headache because they refer to limiting collections with a unique id, and that is not present in your new environment

    Corjan de Vos may you kindly share the script?

    I agree with Andre. Build a new sccm environment in the new domain and migrate your devices to that new sccm environment
