Can I use the Movetree command-line tool to move individual users between domains?

A. Yes, Movetree can move entire trees as well as individual objects. If the object is a container, Movetree also moves its child objects. To move one object, simply specify its distinguished name (DN). For example, to move a user called moveme from the Users container to an organizational unit (OU) in another domain, I typed

movetree /start /s /d /sdn
CN=moveme,CN=users,DC=savilltech,DC=com /ddn

Notice the source DN contains a common name (CN) component for a user object (moveme).
