Joining new Windows SBS 2008 Domain
Posted on 2010-08-22
Hi I have two server upgrades coming up and was wondering the best way to move user profiles to the new domain. In the past I have usually joined the new domain than copied the local profiles by either using the Copy To function under the User Profiles tab in System Properties. Alternatly I have also manually copied the profile from the users Docs and Settings folder. However, I am wondering in SBS 2008 if there is a new improved way of doing. I find I often loose some settings in Word and Outlook when doing it the old way.Also, one of the upgrades will be going from a workgroup. In addition, they will both be completely new servers. Any suggestions?
