I need to move some windows 2000 users from domain "123" to domain "456"
on the same computer
I joined the new domain and then used UserProfile Copy-command but after the copy (no errors)and restart MS office will not run or email client . Is there a reg setting pointing  to the old profile ?
Is this the best way to do this ?

Thanks...

Create your new user profile on the machine
Right click "My Computer" - Properties click user profiles tab - then select the old user profile
you need to copy, click "copy to" then browse to the directory of the new profile you created,
ex: c:\Documents and Settings\newprofile


Hope this helps!

It is a user rights issue you have to click on the c:\documents and settings\username.olddomain and assign full right to the user from the new domain. Make sure you click apply to subfolders also.

When you copied the profile using the GUI, did you assign the new user to the profile, or did you just click the "copy to" button? If you didn't specify the new user, the files are copied, including the registry, but the new user does not have the necessary permissions on the old user's registry; the ACLs in there still show the old user.
The best way to work around this is to copy the profile again, this time specifying the new user before copying.
Oh, and the new user does not need permissions on the old user's profile. Once the old profile is copied into his profile, he has all necessary NTFS permissions.
