NT4server to AD migration-Windows2000 clients- profile question
Posted on 2004-09-26
I'm working on a migration project for a large corporation. We're migrating from an NT4 domain to AD. We have an even mix of Windows 2000 Pro and XP clients. The Windows 2000 clients have domain profiles on the local machines. The users utilizing XP have roaming profiles. We're currently migrating computers...using the ADMT utility. Migrating computers AND translating ALL selections is giving mixed results. These questions will focus on the 2000 clients.
Migrating our clients into the AD Domain is a pretty quick process...but whats the fastest way to get / keep the newly created profile making all desktop settings the same as the original profile? If we utilized the ProfileImagePath registry setting....pointing the new profile to use the old profile file......would profiles eventually break when the old domain goes away?
Any help you can give would be appreciated.
