new domain - new profiles

We had a previous domain linked to all the workstations in our LAN.  If we have a new domain, how do I make sure the profiles on all the computers migrate with ease.  It almost seems like I have to redo all the profiles once I log onto the new domain.

Any help?

Windows 2003 server
Windows 7 workstations

I've done this before.

I used User Profile Wizard tool and it works like a charm.

You don't have to redo all the profile, there are Msft tools for this. Essentially, you have to double-ACL or RE-ACL (Access Control List) the user profile, there are several ways of doing this depending how large your user environment is.

Follow this guide: User State Migration Tool 4.0 User's Guide

Here's a Win7 technet forum that talks about:

This is not an easy simple task because you're NOT SUPPOSED to move the profiles or rebuild your domain.  The suggestion for User Profile Wizard should work (MOST of the time).  The User State Migration Tool I know works when migrating PCs within the same domain, but I'm not so sure it works CROSS domain (but I haven't tried and haven't found it worthwhile to try in the environments where this has come up).

Does forensit work for cross domain migration?

Additional notes:
You have to create a forest trust between the two domains first before re-ACL the profiles.
