Migrating domain user profiles

We currently have two forests. We have trusts setup on the forests. One forest will be decommed after the new forest is configured. how do you migrate windows XP user domain profiles from one windows 2003 domain to another windows 2003 domain?

You probably shouldn't.  NTUSER.DAT is most of the HKCU registry key - which has specific domain information throughout it.

Your best bet is USMT (User State Migration Tool) - this should correctly reconfigure the new profiles.

When the profiles are Roaming, you may want to do it using ADMT (Active Directory Migration Tool). This tool is meant for domain restructuring.

You can also look at the File and Settings Transfer Wizard on Xp machines..  Start --> All Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> File and Settings Transfer Wizard.

Try the MoveUser utiltiy:  http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=9d467a69-57ff-4ae7-96ee-b18c4790cffd&DisplayLang=en

 a utility called Moveuser. This convenient—if incomplete—solution performs one useful task: It can move or copy an account profile to either another local account profile or a domain profile.
