Migrating a Windows machine to JumpCloud from Active Directory is a two-step process.
The first step involves account migration where the ProfWiz utility is used to migrate the profile from the domain account to a new local account.
After the profiles from the domain accounts are migrated to local accounts, the second step, system migration, involves leaving the Active Directory domain and installing the JumpCloud agent.
Find a sequence diagram below for an overview of the migration process using the JumpCloud AD Migration Toolkit.
JumpCloud provides administrators with a curated set of migration scripts and utilities for completing the two-step process of migrating an Active Directory domain bound machine and its user accounts to JumpCloud.
