Active Directory Migration Tool (ADMT) 3.2 is now available.

Microsoft have released to the web ADMT 3.2.

ADMT v3.2 can be deployed to migrate users, groups, service accounts, and computers between Active Directory domains in different forests (inter-forest migration) or between Active Directory domains in the same forest (intra-forest migration). Unlike the previous version 3.1; ADMT 3.2 can run on Windows Server 2008 R2 server.

ADMT 3.2 cannot be used to migrate from Windows 2000 based Active Directory forests.

What’s New in ADMT 3.2

The primary improvements in the Active Directory Migration Tool version 3.2 (ADMT v3.2) are compatibility between ADMT and current versions of Microsoft Windows operating systems. Specifically, you can install and run ADMT v3.2 on editions of the Windows Server 2008 R2 operating system, which does not support installation of earlier versions of ADMT. In addition, you can use ADMT v3.2 to migrate managed service accounts, which are a new feature in Windows Server 2008 R2.

SQL Server database installation changes

Before you can install ADMT v3.2, you must have Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express with Service Pack 3 (SP3), SQL Server 2008 Express with Service Pack 1 (SP1), or SQL Server 2005 or later installed, and you must have configured a database instance for ADMT to use. If you plan to run the ADMT v3.2 console locally on the computer that hosts SQL Server, you can use SQL Server Express. We recommend that you also install the latest service packs for SQL Server.

Managed Service Account Migration

ADMT v3.2 provides the Managed Service Account Migration Wizard and the admt managedserviceaccount command to migrate managed service accounts. You can explicitly specify managed service accounts that need to be migrated, or you can specify computer accounts that ADMT can query for.

Deprecated features

The following features that were available in previous versions of ADMT are not available in ADMT v3.2:

  • Support for migration to or from domains that have domain controllers that run Windows 2000 Server. If you want to use ADMT v3.2, both the source domain and the target domain must have a domain functional level of at least Windows Server 2003.
  • The Exchange 5.5 Mailbox Migration Wizard
  • The admtdb import command that allowed the import of an existing ADMT v2 database into an empty database

  1. Hi,

    Will this be able to help migrate my users 2003 mailbox to 2010 also?
    I have a user in 1 domain, going to another domain, same forest. But his original domain is on exch 2003. I have the new domain on 2010 and was wondering if the ADMT tool will take care of that


      1. Great thanks! I was able to migrate the user great with the tool. I also used my exchange 2010 server to migrate the mailbox and it was shockingly pretty simple 🙂
