Windows 2008 Standard server (DC, DNS, Roaming Profiles), burned. The drive information was recovered but the actual backup drive was not working either so system restoration is out of the question.
A new Windows 2008 R2 server was built and userIDs were recreated froom scratch. Same domain name but obviously the new userIDs have new SIDs.
Client workstations run mixed with XP, Vista and Windows 7, all pro versions or better. The user-side equipment has not changed.
The old recovered data has the user's roaming profiles intact, along with the logon scripts which have been adjusted for the new server.
Questions for sanity check:
1) What is the best way to get these profiles to the new server and make them accessible to the new user accounts?
2) I read that Robocopy is the best way to migrate the old roaming profiles to a new system with Windows 2003 so that it will take on the permission sets. Is this logic and process valid and will it also work with 2008?
Thanks in advance for the support.
