How to migrate roaming user profile

Posted on 2009-04-20

We have over 50 PCs with Windows XP, most of the users have Roaming profiles configured. I have created a Widows XP image which I will be applying to all of the work stations. All the users are using Microsoft Outlook as a mail clint, we don't have Exchange server so all user emails are stored locally in the .pst file. Before applying the new OS on the user PCs I need to save their profiles and reapply them later. Can you suggest the best way to migrate user profiles. Also, we have build a new domain with new AD structure so all the user profiles need to be migrated.

Thank you for the reply.
All our users already have roaming profiles and I need to migrate them to a new server which is going to be our new DC. Also, I'm going to reimage all the PC with new OS and before I do that I need to save user information that saved locally on the PC, like Outlook pst file, so I can later copy that info on to the new OS. All the PC are in the domain.
Thank you very much in advence.
