DSExp.exe & Migrating Computers and Groups to new Deployment Servers
I've been looking into the DSExp utility to help migrate computers from one server to another.
A problem i've found with it is that it isn't granular, its everything or nothing -and this includes security. If you try and fool it by not including the security files text files it creates, it ends up wiping the security on the your DS which is a bit unpleasant and forces a DB restore from backup.
I'm about to start on a little programming to export computers and groups from the express database into a txt file for import through the console, but this is not going to be nice.
How do you all out there handle DS Server migrations with complicated group hierachies? Do you all use DSExp, or do something else?
I've got that sinking feeling i'm missing something obvious... ;-)
