    Thank for all the Reference !

    We Have a particular client who are planning to migration his two olds AD into a brand new One. One big question always on the table :

    “Users & Groups FIRST” or “SERVERS and RESSOURCE FIRst” ? It seem to have 2 school of thought on but subject.

    BUT :
    Every documentation and migration strategies I read seem to be base on this : Migrate Users and Groups FIRST. Follow with Server and others ressources.

    But In this minding SID History have big impact on TokenSize when you deal with 65 000 Groups and sharePoint Site and delegation (SETSPN).

    So my question is : As far as you know, have you any example or reason that a Migration began with Servers and ressources ? Is this a way that will lead to CUL DE SAC ?

    Thank for your opinions
    Jean
