Rebuilt the domain. XP creates a new profile. Can this be stopped?
Posted on 2005-03-30
I have had to rebuild our domain server. Everything has been setup the same as before. Name everything.
However In order for my to log into the new rebuilt server I have to rejoin my windows XP machines to the Domain.
This in turn causes my users to get a new profile. I dont want that. he he he
Is there a program out there that can reconnect it to the old profile?
Or is there some easy steps I can take to make this less painfull.
My users grip about everything my history is not there anymore my e-mail doesnt automatically complete and it goes on and on. I guess I am wishing for an easy way to tell the computer if this person logs in use this profile, without me having to do all this copying. Our domain controller is windows 2003 server, and all of my users computers are running windows xp mixture of sp1 and 2. I am planning to make the big switch over on saturday while my users are not here and hopefully have everything done by the time they get back monday morning.
