Profiles when going from a workgroup to a domain, and vice-versa
Posted on 2004-10-07
This is my first post here. Please excuse my ignorance.
We are always deploying AD Domains in Win2k Server. Typically, we have to recreate the profile, and move .pst's or Outlook Express Message Stores manually. We like to keep the user oblivious to the fact that something has changed.
Most of our users are using either Outlook or Outlook Express with POP3 accounts. It seems that after we move the user/workstation to a domain we always have to go looking for the original Office 2000 CD, since it seems to be real particular about the version (Professional, Premium, Standard, etc) that the .msi uses.
Does anyone have any suggestions regarding how to migrate users and profiles to a domain, or remove them from a domain in a more streamline manner?
