can ADMT migrate active directory users into a new domain keeping the same GUIDs from the old domain?

My IT department has recently migrated active directory into a new domain but this brought as a consequence that All the GUIDs where re-created and now all of the relationships I have in my tables using that GUID are broken. I was just wondering if ADMT will help me keep the old GUIDs.

    Hello JavierPerez

    Object GUID is exclusively for a forest. When you migrate an object it receives a new SID and GUID. So I believe it is not possible to migrate it AFAIK. However you can keep the old SID using ADMT migration.

    There is an option which is to use the SID History as explained here:
