Employee Account Transfer

By djf ·
I have an employee leaving and a new employee coming in, and I want to retain the exact same XP Pro settings on the workstation as I had for the former employee, but I want the new employee to be able to log in under their own user name and password. The server is running NT4 SP 6.0a. Can I simply rename the user account and change the password on the NT server? How will this affect the XP Pro settings?

You can copy the user account in control panel.

How is the user logging into the workstation? Is this a network account or local XP account? Are you running active directory or NT domain architecture?

The user is logging in via an NT 4 SP 6.0a domain.

Regardless of whether this is a local or domain account renaming it and changing the password will work but may leave your audit trail looking a little confusing. Remember though that it will retain ALL settings, email, home folder etc.
