Joining domain maintain settings

I need to join a couple computers to an SBS domain. Last time I tried this the user's settings were not imported.

Is there any way to ensure that all the user's existing docs/settings are maintained when joining the domain using the wizard?

Run the wizard.
From the client computer type the following in the browser:
http://SBSserver/connectcomputer
Then chose the profile you want to use.

hmm, SBS states that it cannot migrate user settings that are private. However, I look in sharing and security properties for this user and the user settings are not private.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You can set up roaming profiles to this easily. However i'd suggest not to keep using them.
If it's only a couple of computers you can use the "Files and Setting transfer wizard at thelocal machine.
The use of roaming profiles is explained here: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/solutionaccelerators/smbiz/sitsol/SBServcs_15.mspx?mfr=true
Hope that helps
