I am in the process of migrating to a new Active directory domain at work.  Right now I am currently stuck on my Mac Users.  I have two Mac OS X 10.6 users who’s accounts are cached on the local computer.    I am not sure what the best way to unbind from the old domain and Bind to the new domain while making sure that the cached user profile can still log into the new domain and still has all the same permissions to its home directory.  I have a back up of the Mac so I have tested this a couple ways but with no prevail.  We are currently running AD on windows 2008.  If you can provide me with any type of guidance, that would be great.  If you need any more information from me just let me know.  
Cheers!

If I am getting your question correct, try opening the keychain that is located in the utilities folder and see if it has any login information for the old domain users. If it does delete it.

In order to answer this we need to know details of the actual migration. Are you migrating from a old domian to a new one.. or upgrading an existing domain to a new version. When you have tested the migration what have you tried.

Also do you use local, network or mobile accounts for your domain joined macs?

We figured it out before the others.  No problem, it is always good to ask around as well.
