assign domain profile to workgroup user on same computer
Posted on 2013-01-27
we have a server 2003 with DC. we are going to get rid of the server so everyone will unjoined the domain. I don't want to rebuild the user profile. I have tested the following but not sure if there will be any issue.
I created local user account first and logged off and logged in with domain admin account. Unjoined the domain. after the pc reboot, I logged in using the new local user account. Logged off and sign in using the local admin account. I renamed the new local account to ex: peter.OLD and then on the user's domain profile, I go to security and assign full permission to the new local account. on the folder, rename to peter.
logged in as peter, I see all his previous setting and didn't see any error message. It looks good to me. so, is the way I am doing will cause any issue?
