Is their a way to Migrate an Apple Local user account to a Active Directory Mac account?
Posted on 2008-06-16
I have currently about 15 Mac's all running Leopard 10.5.3. I have a need to bring all apple systems into our new Microsoft Active Directory domain, I have been sucessful in binding all Macs to Active Directory. But fear that all Local account data will not be moved. My delima is that I need to migrate all the users settings and data from their local account to the domain account that will be created after they are correctly bound to Active directory. For Instance John Doe as a local account on his Mac with account name JohnDoe. I bind his Mac to Active directory no problem. Then I logon to active directory as John.Doe. The user has a blank account no data no settings nothing. Is their a way that I could import JohnDoe(Local) into John.Doe (active Directory)? Any help is greatly appreaciated.
