We have Windows NT 4.0 and XP pro on an NT 4.0 domain, what is the best way to move a user from a roaming to local profile?

Thx in advanced,

Simply create a profile path  for each user. Goto user manager for domain, select account and choose profile tab and enter a profile path i.e \\server\profiles\jsmith. The first machine you logon will upload the local  profile to the  server.

Hope this helps

From the client pc - (log on as an administrator and not logged as the profile you wish to change.

Right click on my computer and left click properties.

From the advanced tab click the user profiles settings button.
 From the list select the profile you wish to change. Click on the change type button. And choose local profile.

Hope this helps
