moving existing profiles from one domain to another
Posted on 2006-03-31
background - i've got a pre-existing network/domain already set up in a building. the client wants to cut the building in half and make 2 totally seperate networks/domains. requirements are that shared computers have several local profiles under the pre-existing network. i need to be able to move them over to the new domain without erasing the local profiles already stored on the shared computers.
what i have done so far - i have made everybody a domain admin. logged into every computer with everybodys name to create a profile for the new domain on the local computer. transferred the existing profiles into the newly created profile folders and when they log in to the domain now there profiles come up like they should.
the problem - Now when i try to remove them as a domain admin and change everybody back to a domain user, they log in and a newly created profile is set up for them and no longer looks at the profile i want it to. how do i prevent this from happening without giving everybody admin priviledges on the server or the local PC.
any help is appreciated
