Just need a bit more info here. Why are you trying to move the localmachine admin account to domain admins?

Moveuser.exe [user1] [domain\user2] /y

[user1]=The local user profile you are trying to
Notice that only the username is

[user2]=The domain\user profile you are trying to

[/y]= Allow overwrite of existing profile

Note: Make sure the profile you are trying to create does not exist already. If it does exist, rename the account in the profiles list. Make sure your logon is administrator or any other account with admin privleges on the local machine. Make sure you are not logged on as the account your trying to move.
