Ahead of migration AD

Before the changeover phase and on the basis of the information gathered during the initial audit and skills transfer / training phase, we carry out the following operations:

  • eligible servers running with old Linux versions are updated
  • the access passwords to all the hardware devices concerned by the project are tested and the configuration parameters of these devices are explored ;
  • access passwords to all system servers or application servers involved in the project are tested and application platform configuration parameters are explored ;
  • MAC address’ / IP address’ match all network devices and are counted in order to build or correct existing DNS and DHCP configurations ;
  • user accounts, administration accounts, machine accounts, service accounts, sites, DNS records and delegations are prepared in a spreadsheet and pushed by a script into a simulation environment ;
  • the WAPT utility is pushed on all workstations with the method defined in the audit phase ;
  • the WAPT domain migration and profile migration package is pushed across the entire park ;

Lunch or the evening of the scale:

  • the simulation environment is switched to production ;
  • replications are implemented (RWDC and RODC) according to the replication strategy defined in the audit phase ;
  • the WAPT domain migration and profile migration package changes from “standby” mode to “active” mode ;
  • Windows machines automatically switch to the new Samba-AD domain and a sample is tested ;
  • Apple, Linux and Chromebooks clients are attached to the domain manually or through automatic configuration scripts and tested ;
  • Linux system and application servers are attached to the domain manually or through automatic configuration scripts and tested;
  • hardware devices are manually reconfigured and tested.

Following migration

The user re-opens their session, and has the impression that nothing has changed, even if a phenomenal amount of things have changed in the technical layers they do not see.

Our staff spend the day after the migration with you to correct the small defects at the margin that users can go up.
