Resolution

goal
What is the best practice for translating security in multiple source domains that may be separated from the target by a WAN?

fix

The best practice for translating security when WAN or other bandwidth limitations exist, is to export the project to a DMA console machine in the source domain.  This practice should only apply to situations that preclude your from migrating the machine or data from the source domain.

The supported method for exporting projects is to export from the first installation of DMA and then import them into the second.  The versions of DMA must be the same between both installations.  Please use the following steps to successfully export and import a project.

  1. Open the DMA console on the machine that you want to move the project from. 
  2. Right click on your Project in the left hand pane of the MMC, and select Export Project
  3. Specify the file name and click Save.
  4. On the DMA console that you want to move the project to, create a new project and select Import a project.
  5. Then complete the wizard using the file you created during the Export.

For more information regarding project exports, please see Chapter 6 'Delegating Migration Tasks' in the DMA User Guide.
