Moving user files from workgroup to Server 2003
Posted on 2006-11-09
Our company is moving from about 5 workgroups to a new AD 2003. I am curious, but users have there data in various locations. I was thinking of doing the following and just wanted some input and suggestions.
Install the new servers and setup AD. Create the users folders where I will point their home directories to be. Share those folders, and have users move there data (and have me move there data) to teh correct folders. once that is done, join them to the domain, and there profile should point to these newly created folders.
Again, just looking for any gotchas. I am aware of copying their profiles, but is there anything else you guys see that might cause a problem.
