Tool to copy local profile to domain

ibasit
Dear All,

I heard that there is very friendly tool that could copy local profile to domain user profile which will be stored local to the same machine. Any clue and I am very thankful for your cooperation.


Best Regards ,

Ismail

    There probably is a tool somewhere, I don't know, but this functionality is built into Windows.

    First, log onto the machine with the domain user account to be sure that a local profile is created for the Domain user account. Be sure to note the path to the user profile. If there's any doubt, open a CMD prompt and enter SET. In the screenful of environment variables, note the value of USERPROFILE.

    Next, reboot the machine (to be sure that no processes remain running as either the source or destination users.

    Upon reboot, log in as either the local Administrator (assuming this is NOT the account that your're copying from) or a Domain Administrator.

    Go to System Properties / Advanced tab / Settings button in the User Profiles section (or if Windows 2000 or NT, Go to the System Properties / User Profiles tab).

    Highlight the SOURCE profile and press the COPY TO button; Browse to the destination path that you noted above for the domain account USERPROFILE, then in the Permitted to use section, select CHANGE and select the DOMAIN User Account. Press OK.

    Depending on the size of the profile, the copy can take awhile. Once completed, log out, and log in as the Domain user to verify.

    I'm trying to do this same thing from a Win7 PC. The instructions seems like they'd still apply, but I'm still getting the dimmed button even after reboot. The profile I want to copy, in this case, is the local admin account. I login as the new domain user, then reboot. After reboot, I log in as domain admin, and no luck. Any ideas? Thanks!

    I somehow suspect (and hope) that this would not work.

    Why not just copy the admin user files (if there are any) over to the domain admin account (if you really need to do so).

    Maybe something to do with UAC and I haven't had time to dork with it myself.

    What are you trying to accomplish?

    What you are describing sounds like setting up Roaming Profiles.
