We recently acquired a company running a very similar domain to ours, and we would like to merge the company into our domain.
The question is, can we provide a domain alias and map that to our domain (e.g. ComapnyA\username -> CompanyB\username) meaning we don't have to implement the new domain on the old machines.
Or do we have to maintain 2 domain forests?
The acquired company uses a username format of
JoeB wheras we use
JBloggs can we map the users to a specific user on the domain?
