connectcomputer SBS

Hi I am having issues with the Connectcomputer utility in SBS 2003.  It has worked fine for all other users except one.  When I run it, it seems to work fine no errors.  But none of the data is actually getting migrated.  So nothing on the desktop or in My Documents.  It just seems to be added the computer to the domain and created a fresh new user profile.

Has anyone had an issue similar to this or can someone give me an idea what I might be able to do.  The reason is the user of course is the owner, and he likes things just so and isn't that tech savvy.  So I want the transition to be as smooth as possible.

Any help would be great.

    You could manually join the computer to the domain and transfer that users documents/icons/etc over if you have to.
    I hope this helps. Good luck.

    Accepted Solution

    Oh yeah I know I can do that, but things are not quite the same way when that method is done.  The Connectcomputer tool tends to do a nice job, except of course in this case.
