I recently changed from workgroup to domain. When I did I copied the local/user account to the user/domain account via; my comp>properties>copy profile user/local to....user/domain
I left the "permitted to use" box as the local user.
For SOME applications, when the domain user tries to save, the file will save in the local users "my docs", instead of the domain users "my docs". I have changed a few manually, but is there a quicker way to do it? I would like to have any "save as" function point to the user.domain folder under documents and settings.
I see that under user properties in computer managment there is a user profile tab. This allows you to set ;
User profile> profile path, login script and home folder either local path or mapped to a share. Would this be the place to perform this function?

i dont understand, why you leave the "permitted to use" point to the "old" user ?

normally, if you want to transfer from locally to domain you go this way:

1. logon+logoff as new domainuser
2. logon as admin
3. start>settings>controlpanel>system>userprofiles> "select the profil you want to copy">copy to> "browse to the location of the new (domain)profile" >change>"select the new created user" >OK

I did that. My question is this; on the same applet that allows you to do this, there is a text box that says "permitted to use"
I'm assuming that I should browse the users and pick the new domain user in THAT window also? I left it as the local user, it works except  that I think I need to change the "home directory" now, as some saved files are being saved in the local users my documents folder. Regarding that, is the home directory the parent directory for the domain under documents and settings, or is it the my documents folder for the domain user under docs and settings?
thanks

yes. if you do not put in the (domain) user, the user-specific parts are not substituted. then you get problems with rights in the registry, wrong homedirs, rights with files in original profil, ....
