The Active Directory Migration Tool version 3 (ADMT v3) provides an integrated toolset to facilitate migration and restructuring tasks in an Active Directory infrastructure.
The Active Directory Migration Tool version 3 (ADMT v3) simplifies the process of restructuring your operating environment to meet the needs of your organization. You can use ADMT v3 to migrate users, groups, and computers from Microsoft® Windows NT® 4.0 domains to Active Directory® directory service domains; between Active Directory domains in different forests (interforest migration); and between Active Directory domains in the same forest (intraforest migration). ADMT v3 also performs security translation from Windows NT 4.0 domains to Active Directory domains and between Active Directory domains in different forests.
This document provides Response Point VARs and technicians with information to help them provide maintenance services to Response Point customers.
This information is provided as a recommendation that can be used as a basis for building maintenance agreements with Response Point clients to help ensure the proper functioning of a Response Point solution. The first section of this paper describes various maintenance concepts, including information about performing some of the more complex maintenance tasks. The second section provides information and recommendations for Response Point maintenance scheduling. The third section gives further recommendations for tasks that should be performed whenever certain types of changes are made to a Response Point environment.

There’s an easier way to communicate.
Introducing Microsoft Response Point, innovative phone system software designed to meet the needs of small businesses. Response Point can save you time and money with a breakthrough voice-activated user interface, simplified setup and user management, and effortless mobility.
This paper is designed to assist VARs who want to offer Response Point readiness assessments, pre-deployment planning, and solution implementation services to smallbusiness customers.
This paper will describe the recommended Response Point network assessment, planning, and deployment tasks that will help ensure a successful Response Point implementation. At the time of publication, Response Point does not natively support Internet Telephony Solution Provider (ITSP) connections. The release of Response Point Service Pack 1 (SP1) is planned for March 2008 and will introduce native ITSP support. However, it is possible to utilize an ITSP solution today by connecting Response Point to the ITSP by using gateways or Integrated Access Devices (IADs). Information about connecting Response Point to an ITSP has been included in this document.
Answers to the most common problems you may encounter.
The Microsoft® Response PointTM phone system is a software-based voice communication solution designed specifically for small businesses with one to 50 employees. Completely packaged with all of the required hardware and software, Response Point is easy to install, configure, and manage; however, it is possible you may experience some technical issues. This guide offers troubleshooting advice for the ten most common problems that might develop during the setup and maintenance of your Response Point system. Before unnecessarily disabling the entire system or contacting a support service, first use the simple steps outlined in this guide to try to diagnose a problem. Sometimes, the issue can be as simple as an improperly connected cable.
Before combining these products, you will need to have a thorough understanding of how to deploy and support Microsoft Response Point phone system software in an office that is already using Windows® Small Business Server (SBS) 2003 R2.
Individuals who manage these communication solutions—such as a systems engineer working for a value-added reseller (VAR) or an IT professional employed by a small business—will find this information useful. This valuable reference is useful for planning a Response Point deployment with SBS, but it is not designed to stand alone. This document supplements the out-of-box manuals and quickstart guides that come with the Response Point software, manufacturer’s hardware, and SBS equipment.
