Can you join a domain without losing user's settings...
Posted on 2008-10-28
I have a small remote office with 7 ermployees. For whatever the reason, their pc's were never joined to our domain. I recently upgraded their firewall and have a nice lan2lan VPN established, and now I want to join all their pc's to our domain. When I experimented with an old laptop, I joined it to the domain, and all the user settings were lost. My question is, is there any way to do this without then having to totally recreate their user profiles? (having to copy all their My Docs, favorites, desktop items and settings, recreating outlook profiles and moving archive folders, etc. from the old user folder to the newly created user folder) ?
