Migrating User Profiles in Windows XP
Posted on 2006-04-27
I am getting ready to promote a Windows 2000 Server to a domain controller and have a number of users that connect to mapped drives on this server. When I promote it I was wondering what the easiest way to get the user accounts with all of their Outlook settings, Favorites, My Documents, mapped drives etc to their new profile once the machine has joined the domain? I know you can go into System Properties - User Profiles and Copy but I didn't know if this was the easiest way like it use to be or if there is a better way now in 2000 Professional and XP Professional? Thanks.
