VB Script

We are migrating users from one domain to another which means that profiles must be created to match the one they used in the old domain.
Is it possible for a vb script to automate this? Example: outlook profile settings, desktop shortcuts from old profile to new profile. With 200 users I would sure like to automate as much as possible.
Thanks

So your essentially looking for a way to automate the moving of a lot of folders while changing their name to the second domain? If this is the case all you need to do is enumerate the folders in the documents and settings and manipulate the string of the folder name to change the domain. This can be done using file i/o with commands like
Directory.Move
for moving the directories
GetDirectories
to enumerate subfolders

If you need some help with string manipulation let us know, but the actual code won't be too complex, although if you want to provide details on the domain names i'll be write something for you.

My apologies, i'd forgotten you were using vbscript so system.IO might not be an option, you can however use FSO, there is a good article on it here:

I'm still happy to give you a hand if you need it :) but give it a go first
