Accounts and Rights Required for Active Directory Migration Tasks

Migration Manager for Active Directory requires administrative access for the source and target domains, processed servers, and workstations.

Migration Manager for Active Directory allows you to use different administrative accounts to access domains and computers involved in migration. For directory migration and synchronization Migration Manager uses the source and the target Active Directory accounts to access the source and the target domains, respectively.

The table below shows what privileges each account must have. To learn how to set these permissions, please see Appendix. How to Set the Required Permissions for Active Directory Migration and Exchange environment preparation documents.

Directory migration

Accounts Involved Requirements How To Grant

Source and target Active Directory accounts

Administrative access to each source and target domain involved in Active Directory migration

We recommend that you to create a new user account for the migration activities in each source and target domain instead of using an existing one. Add these accounts to the domain’s local Administrators group in the corresponding domains. For details, see Appendix. How to Set the Required Permissions for Active Directory Migrationand dedicated Exchange environment preparation documents..

Note: If you have established two-way trusts between each source and target domain or forest trust, you can grant this single account administrative access to each source and target domain.

Important: This powerful account must be maintained closely and should be deleted after the project is complete. It is recommended that this account be owned by one individual and one backup individual (or as few individuals as possible).
