Moving from Workgroup to Active Directory (tips)
Posted on 2011-09-16
So, I'm moving my small company from workgroup to active directory. I already have Windows Server 2008 R2 running, domain set, users created, DHCP, DNS, all working.
I had never worked with active directory before. I need tips on moving the clients from workgroup to domain. I know how to do it technically. What I need to know is things I need to be concerned about. Some questions I have (but not everything I don't know):
– What users' files should I copy before changing the client to domain?
– Will the users be able to access their old files in their old accounts in case something is forgotten?
– What about emails (Outlook and Outlook Express)?
If you have ANY other tips on this, besides the above questions, please tell me.
