The Campus Active Directory (CAD) team is piloting a tool that would simplify domain migrations to Campus Active Directory. Domain migrations can be extremely complex and time consuming, therefore we are investigating the use of Quest Binary Tree Migrator Pro (Source: binarytree.com) based on feedback from our IT partners expressing a need for assistance to expedite, simplify, and automate parts of the migration process.
This pilot is a proof of concept to assess the utility and efficacy of Quest Binary Tree Migrator Pro in our environment. If the pilot is a success we intend to leverage the service to support campus partners. The pilot group is SMPH Shared Services IT, which is migrating their supported SMPH Dean’s Office Administration units to Campus Active Directory. The timeline for the pilot will run from mid-November through April 2023.
Campus Active Directory Services (Source: it.wisc.edu) enables participating departments to take advantage of centralized NetID-based authentication, while allowing for delegated administration of local resources. This allows departmental IT administrators to assign group policies, manage security groups and deploy software while taking advantage of the convenience of NetID authentication and authorization using institutional or locally-maintained data.
