Profile Copying

By andrew.gough ·
Trying to move an XP laptop, from workgroup, into a domain. Set up domain user on the laptop, and an admin account. Tried to use the admin account, under system properties to copy the profile from the old user, to the new domain user ... BUT!, I get an error to say it cannot set the security privaledges.

Have googled for this and found questions, but no answers!, any thoughts?

Thanks for the help, but we have now found a MS tool (USMT) to migrate the settings, and this has so far proved successful.

We use the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard to do this, works fine.

Where domain issues are concerened, we usually need to disjoin from the domain, log on as a local administrator, (make sure you have unhidden all files under folder options), rename the domain users folder in Documents and Settings to userold. Rejoin the PC to the Domain. Log on as the domain user, a new folder for that user is created. Log off and on as administrator. Copy all from the userold file to user file. Is there an easier way to do this? probably several. Does this way work every time AND get rid of all those Domain log on errors, etc.? It has for us every time! This is usually caused by a SID problem, the Domain cannot set up the proper security settings between the server and pc. Check this link:

I believe this would work in the future, however we have now found a MS tool (USMT) to migrate the settings, and this has so far proved successful.
