I had to rebuild a Windows 2003 DC and I'm getting ready to put it back in place.  The setup is a very small office of 4PC's all running XP Pro.

What do i need to do when I drop the server back in?  Should I remove and rejoin clients from/to the domain?  The profiles are all local.

Any tips on what to look out for?

hmm you will need to rejoin them all

when they are rejoined they will create new local profiles, you will need to copy the data over manually from the old profiles, unfortunately, there isnt a way of avoiding it :)

But thats about it, its quick and easy

oh, you may find that you need to take ownership of the old profiles through the security tab before you can access them
