I have a sharepoint 2010 multi server environment (2 wfe, 1 app server, 1 DB, 1 FAST server) that I need to move to another AD domain.
The OldDomain is our Internal network, while the NewDomain is for external access. The NewDomain does trust the OldDomain.
I currently have all the services and web app pools running as accounts in OldDomain and would like them to stay that way. There is a one-way trust between the domains (NewDomain trusts OldDomain)
The only users currently setup are in OldDomain and should also remain, but we will be adding users from NewDomain.
- Can I simply change the domain member ship of the machines and expect it to work?
- Should I remove each server from the farm one by one then change the domain and re-add it to the farm?
- Can/should SharePoint servers be in different domains, IE if I move the web front ends to allow people form the Newdomain to access the sites, can/should I leave the app and fast servers in the old domain?
The main thing that I cannot do is build a new farm and migrate sites, I don't have the time or the hardware.
