Profiles with computer name

By chaoticbliss ·
Hi, can someone add some clarity to an issue I have with my Manager? We have users on a Windows domain and now want to take them off the domain. On our user's workstations, they have their domain profile in documents and setting, for example john_doe. As we take them off the domain, we want to keep the naming convention of firstname_lastname. When I create the local profile keeping that naming convention, windows adds the computer name after the profile, for example john_doe.04-jdoe <--computer name, I know you can't have two profiles with the same name. I would then use the copy utility and copy the domain john_doe profile to the new local profile john_doe.04-jdoe. His argument is that this is incorrect and the new profiles will eventually get corrupted or something will go wrong. Is he right? Can someone shed some light on this matter? Thank you.
