Moving User Profiles

By porknar ·
I am having a hard time figuring out how to move my user account to an new server. For what ever reason we are installing new drives. We installed new drive and reload win sbs 2003. Now I need to take the user accounts and save them or some thing then pulg in the new drive and import them into my new domain(which is exactly the same as the old) Any help is greatly appericated.

I think your going to find this is a much more complicated process than you think because you cannot have 2 DC's running during this operation. I would recommend doing an active directory backup and restore on the system to recover your accounts. Microsoft has a great deal of documentation on the process.

I'd give yourself a large scheduled window of time to do this and carefully review the MS documentation on this process before you engage it. Have a good checklist to check that it worked and expect you may have to try it more than once before you succeed.

Sorry I couldn't give you a "silver bullet" for this but I don't know of an easier way to migrate the users with a single server.
