AD 2000 Move

Ok,

I am wanting to re-design our company's AD structure.  We have been somewhat spread out but I am now in charge of all offices, so there are some setup issues.  What I want to do is re-install all PDC's and set it up properly.  My question is how do I do so, and have all local profiles for our users the same?

Do I just backup their profiles to tape, remove from domain, add to new domain, then restore the profiles when the new domain comes up?

Thanks,
Rob

No you'll have to use a tool, like moveuser.exe.  Each user will get a new SId with an entire rebuild ofthe system.  Hope your ready for along holiday weekend.  :)

You will have to excuse my ignorance, I am a *nix guy.

So, what your saying is I will have to install the new PDC, and use moveuser.exe on the current PDC.  Once that is complete how will I remove the workstaiton from the old domain and into the new domain and have their old local profiles associate with their new domain account?  And for what it's worth, I'd like to move them to roaming profiles?

If my links were not of any help, what did I not answer that was being looked for?  To remove the workstation from the old PDC he would have to do so in active directory and disjoin the workstation from the domain.  As far as retaining the old local profiles, he would have to copy the appropriate directories from the old profiles to the new ones once the user logs onto the new domain and their roaming profile is created.  Needless to say a lot of settings and preferences will be lost, it' can't be done seemlessly.
