Domain Profile Copying
Posted on 2005-04-19
I’m trying to copy some user profiles from another machine that will log onto a domain. These profiles use the exact usernames from previous logins, so the profile naming is exactly the same. What happens, however, is that when you copy these profiles to the new machine and you log onto the domain, Windows does not use the profile that you copied, yet it creates a new profile and it puts a .”domain” at the end of the user profile folder name. For example, rgilbert.Domain1 instead of using rgilbert. Even if I rename the folder beforehand to rgilbert.Domain1 and try to use this profile, then Windows will create something like rgilbert.000. What can I do to fix or work around this?
