I am in the process of changing servers on a network that uses a Domain controller. The server that I would like to change is the domain controller. I rejoined the desktops to the domain to get the correct SID. I do not want to go thru the hassle of reloading all the profiles. I know there is a way, I am currently copying the Documents and setting files from the old profile to the new one ( I think you understand!) however I do know something has to be done to the registry. This is where I need help. Server OS is WIN2000 server desktops are XP PRO

Thanks

It sounds like you could make use of the Active Directory Migration Tool:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/techinfo/planning/activedirectory/admt.asp

I have successfully used this tool to migrate ~800 users from an NT domain to a new W2K domain.  It can be used the same way to restructure a W2K domain (collapsing or changing domain structure and naming).  The link has the details and info about where to download the tool.

Hope this helps,
