Mapping Between Source & Destination

This software allows users to fetch the respective objects from the source AD domain, such as Users, Printers, Computers, Groups, Contacts, and Shared folders between Active Directory domains. And this tool also allows users further to define a destination location & map the destination path to save the resultant migration objects in the destination Active Directory Domain Controller.

Easy Deployment & Usage

SysTools Active Directory Migration Tool is much easier to set up and use than competing software available in the market today. Meanwhile, the other software force you to use scripts or a dizzying array of modules, whereas, SysTools AD migration software comes with a simple GUI, that users can deploy and use without even having prior technical knowledge.

Force Restart

After the successful migration of computers, we have to restart the Machines to reflect the domain change, in this case, we have to manually restart the machines. However, with the force restart feature, the administrators can enforce a restart of migrated computers remotely, by defining the time in minutes from 1 to 5 mins. With these features, you can ensure swift and efficient Machine rebooting, minimize downtime, and ensure a smooth migration of computers to the new Active Directory environment.

Detailed & Summary Report

As the Active Directory migration starts; the software shows users the complete details and count of AD objects, including Users, Computers, Printers, Shared Folders, etc., that are being migrated from a source AD to a target. In addition, it provides users with comprehensive migration insights on real-time data for each step of their migration. This is done through various reports, including Domain wise Summary report, Migrated To and Migrated From report, and Migration Scenario wise workload count report.

Comprehensive Security

Security becomes always the top concern when dealing with sensitive enterprise data. SysTools AD Migrator is the safest tool available today. As it avoids RPC and remote registry access. Moreover, it does not require any open inbound ports in the network firewall. Furthermore, it does not gather any credentials such as Email and Passwords within the software's database during or post the migration stage.

Conflict Handling

This software provides support to migrate Active Directory Objects with two options, a user can use. Those are as follows:

Bidirectional Password Sync

Another remarkable feature of SysTools AD Migrator is, it offers bidirectional password synchronization.

This feature eliminates the chances of password mismatch and security concerns. It streamlines seamless synchronization and keeps user credentials up-to-date across both domains without manual intervention.

(Note: To use the Bidirectional Password Sync you have to enable the Password Sync Feature in the software)

Exclude Property

With the enhanced SysTools Active Directory Migration Tool, admins now can exclude specific properties of Active Directory users before migration using a CSV file. Whether it's some specific attribute or unnecessary property, this feature offers granular control over what gets transferred to the destination AD domain.
