Join domain and copy old profile
Posted on 2009-12-29
A friend of mine has an SBS 2003 domain. A user with a Windows 7 machine has been logging on locally for some time and was not a memeber of the domain but now my friend wants him on there. Previously I would have joined the machine to the domain, logged in as the new domain user, log out and logged back in as a domain admin (not the old account or the new one) and copied the old profile to the new location. But having tried that on this machine, the "copy to" button is greyed out. Is the procedure different on Windows 7 than it was on XP? I have re-booted the machine several times but no joy.
