XP user accounts directory on local machine

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Our clients are running XP Pro in a 2003 Active Directory domain. We recently created a new domain in 2008. How comes when that user logins for the first time there isn't a new user profile created on his machine? I would think because he's in a new domain, under Documents and Settings there would be a new profile called Bob.Smith.NewDomain. Instead his user profile is still Bob.Smith.
