Migration tool for copying profiles from Local to Domain (not roaming)

Hi,

I am wondering if there is a recomended tool that is reliable for copying people's local profiles to the domain profile but still on the machine locally. I have a situation were I want everyone to join the domain but keep their existing mail contacts and other settings and files. The source profile is not going to be the same as the destination though. I realize you can copy and rename the profile directory and that kind of thing but I am not sure if this is the most reliable way to do it. If anyone has any info or experience on this please let me know!


Thank you,

I'm Talking about the Grade of my answer....you gave it C, That's why i was wondering you gave grade C to my answer although it's straight forward.

I'm telling you this as an advice, because we as an EXPERT welling to help and all we gain from this is just points, and no one from those experts in EE will accept to get C Grade, believe me some experts choose some people and put them in their black list and never answer their questions specially when they find them used to give grade C, and that's obviouse in your profile.

Let me know.

Naser,

I should have specified that I did not use Moveuser yet but I have read all about it and have been referred by another page to use the moveuser utility.

I would like to add that you in fact do deserve a better grade than C and it was my mistaken grade. If there is anything I can do to regrade please let me know.

Thanks again,
