Can you use USMT to migrate users settings across domain?

We need to migrate users from domain A to B and i heard that USMT will allow you to do this smoothly but there is some tweaking to do. Do you guys know how to do this?

Thanks

You can use USMT but I'd also look into another free product http://www.forensit.com/domain-migration.html

I also made the same suggestion last year and you can see the tool got really good reviews there too  http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Windows/XP/Q_26408269.html

Thanks

Thanks for the quick response. I looked at that tool you mentioned but let me present the scenario better so you can see what i'm looking for:

We need a tool that will allow us to do the following
-Back up user (s) profiles on the OLD domain.
-Reimage the computer with our standard image OR replace machine with a newer one if needed.
-Join machine to our domain.
-Put the user (s) profiles back "on the NEW domain"

That tool (unless im missing something) will not store the setting on a specified location where i can retrieve it later and restore. See?
Thanks again!!

Won't blow smoke,  I'd have to test USMT to know if it meeds all those requirements.
