Moving a XP-Pro off a NT4 Domain Problem.

By m_nomina ·
I need some help on this one, in the office there is a NT4 server that five XP-Pro workstations are logged into the domain. It?s time to retire NT4 and we are replacing it with a XP-Pro peer to peer system as the application we run is a dos based and the software company recommended that the peer to peer will do just fine and it would be less expensive.

I got started setting up on one of the workstations, logged of the domain (user office) and logged on locally (user office) and found out that the account doesn?t exist on the XP-Pro workstation. I logged in to the XP-Pro workstation as the admin and found that there was a user folder under Documents and Setting called office, exploring the folder I found the desktop and all their applications are there and I need to retain this profile.

Logged on as admin I thought of creating a user office on the workstation but I didn?t know if it would remove the office profile and create a black. Or maybe I could move the office desktop to all users. There is only on user on the workstation.

Has anyone got some suggestion as I can?t lose this user?s desktop?

Moving a XP-Pro off a NT4 Domain Problem.

The present user folder under Documents and Setting called "office" is the local user profile directory for the domain user "office". It can't be used for anyother user. You will have to create a new local user. Login into that user and copy the data of the previous profile's local user profile directory under Documents and Setting to the new user's local user profile directory under Documents and Setting manually.
