Migrate users from Existing Windows 2003 Domain to new 2008 Domain

There are users on an existing Windows 2003 domain and the company want to move users to a new 2008 domain, with new AD as they would like to change the domain name. Can anyone tell me whats the proper way to go for that? Thanks.

You can try to go with the ADMT solution, but if Exchange is involved then it is a bit more complicated. Also if there is a project budget left then you may also want to look into the Quest Migration tools, which is very easy to use. Anways, then ADMT is also free and works properly.

Will it be fine if I introduce Windows 2008 server as ADC, transferring the roles from Windows 2003 to 2008 and then renaming the Windows 2008 domain? Thanks

As mentioned earlier, ADMT will do that pretty easily. Incase you use Exchange then you need to post the version that you have. I wont choose the same name as for external for the new domain name, if you have one.
