hi :

User A will transfer from office 1 to office 2 next week.

In the AD, is it possible to transfer the user A from one domain to another domain.

1. Or would it be better to delete the user in domain 1 and create a new user in domain 2 with the same user ID ?

2. And what type of administrator in AD can perform this type of task.

Thanks

You can do it that way but you can also move it. My suggestion normally resides depennding on the rights permissions the user needs. Will this user require all the same group rights they had before? Or will they have new requirements? If they have the old requirements best to just move them and keep the applied permissions/groups. If they need new group and things like that its usually easier to delete and copy someone who is existing in the new domain.

2. And what type of administrator in AD can perform this type of task.
someone who has control/rights over the whole forest should be able to move.

I am assuming both Domains are in the same Forest right?
