New Active Directory - how to get i get local profiles over?

new office move, a big change from a small 5 user office, no DC or AD, people just had their personal systems and that was it.

Now the new office, i am doing a DC/AD/DNS, and i need to join about 20 computers to the domain (another office merging with ours), none of these system were previously in a domain.

Now i could go, add each computer, then set up their meails, favorites, documents and so on and pull my hair out doing it for maybe a week, but i was hoping there was  amuch simplier solution.

i have read alot of threads on this here at EE, but they all seem to deal with moving from an old AD to a new one and using the migration tool kit.


Our set up right now is

DC1
DC2
and a members file server where files / documents will be stored.
Exchange server (eventually)

Yes, this is the same procedure for you. There is a tool that can do the move for you as well.
