    by pendler ·

    I have to switch several windows XP professional PCs from one domainserver and domain to a new domainserver and domain. the thing is, I don’t wanna
    loose users desktop settings, otherways it will be very timeconsuming to settup everything again.
    Is there any easy way to keep the setups even if I change domain and server?

      Oh, Maybe I should explain a little further:
      all the desktop profiles are stored localy on the local PC’s, no serverprofiles exist.

      Login as an administrator, get the user to login at least once to the workstation, logout, login as local administrator, load System control panel, click Advanced, User Profile Settings and copy old user profile to new profile in c:\documents and settings\ and set access permission for new domain user.

      I use a utility called MOVEUSER.EXE.
      It came with WIN NT server resource kit and continues to be available with server resource kits.
      Read the directions carefully. Practice a couple times. If you do something wrong, the profile is gone forever.

      Hmmm, how to give someone the 150 points?
      sorry dudes, you all deserved it but somehow I could not give toe points to any of you……..
      I haven’t catched the system right now……
