Depending on your current infrastructure it might be desirable to keep some or all of the current data and right. Depending on the system you are coming from there are different approaches. This article's aim is to give you an overview of the different ways.

Migration from Microsoft Active Directory

If you are planning to rollout new clients or have the possibility to rejoin all clients to a new installation, the AD-Connector is your way to go. It will migrate all the necessary userdata and passwords without moving the computers.

If you need to keep your computer accounts while moving to UCS the only way is to join your Samba 4 to your Active Directory. The article Join Samba 4 to an AD describes how to join Samba 4 to an excising Active Directory. Please note that the article was only tested for a specific environment and should first be tried in an save environment before applying it to the production systems.
