I know there is an easy way to migrate the 8 or so accounts I need to move from one machine to another so that I dont have to disjoin each machine and manually rejoin the new domain ..

 Maybe I do have to do this manually, I dont know.

  This is a fairly simple set of users.  All I want to avoid is messing up the icons on their desktop , power settings, Outlook, NK2 data and all the other stuff we take for granted in a Windows Profile.

 I know how to manually put all this back , its just quite tedious to do it for 10 users and I want to minimize down time.

Looking for ideas on the text book perfect way to do this migration .

Let me rephrase my question .  I dont want to go through 90 steps or the wizard.  Just not enough users to matter.

The domain name is the same on each server.  In this case, do I need to disjoin each workstation from the current domain and rejoin the new server once the old one is off.

Basically , for 6 users, I can just make them manually and copy over their stuff, desktop , etc.

I just dont want a registry nightmare from trying to login to a new server with the same domain name that is not indedd the same server.

and obviously , once disjoined , I suppose I need to check the administrator or some account on each machine so I can login on the stupid thing once the domain account is hozed.
