XP Pro SP1
Need to disjoin from a domain and still allow user to log into previous profile with no hitches. Would like to know if there is any trick to this. A link to procedure would be great.
** Background: PC was at a users home but still joined to our domain. Another person noticed this, and joined him to WORKGROUP. After this, the login for "userid" stopped working and nobody could figure out the admin password. The PC was brought to me and I used "nt_pass" to blank out the Administrator password and get into the PC.
Now, I am joined back to the domain (back at square 1) and want to know the 'right' path. Do I need to 'disjoin', then create a 'same named' local account and manually copy profile over?
Any advice, or proper procedures appreciated. We will likely be doing this for many more 'domain' PCs that are becoming home PCs permanently.
