Hello, I have a windows system that is not allowing me to log using any domain account ....... I have tried to log into the local account with no luck ... I have hunted down a boot cd that can reset local admin passwords I am about to try this to reset the local account but my question is if once I log into the local account if I remove the system from the domain and then rejoin when I log back on as the user will it recreate a new profile?? How can I ensure I keep their data from the first profile? Also the server is not using roaming profiles..... any direction will be gladly appreciated..

Domain Users will get there existing profiles only no matter how many times you rejoin system to domain unless you delete the user profiles or delete the registry values.
Bcause all domain \ local Profiles are stored in below registry with users SID.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList]

No fear. Disjoin from the Domain and Rejoin. The profile will remain the same.

No file will be deleted if you create a file as a domain user. So a domain user can still find the files,

If that computer is part of the domain Try resetting the password for that specific user from the 2008 server.

The curse of the end user strikes again      

You’ve updated all your end user’s email signatures. Hooray! But guess what? They’re playing around with the HTML, adding stupid taglines and ruining the imagery. Find out how you can save your signatures from end users today.

you can use Hirens Cd to reset the password from the local administrator, also if you need you can create new local accounts too with Hirens CD. I recommend you take the machine off from the domain using the client machine and not from the domain....

If you don't delete the profile in your machine the system maybe just create a new profile for this user, then you just need migrate one to another...

Unplug network cable. Log on as domain admin. Local admin is disabled when you join domain. While logged on plug network cable back in and unjoin/rejoin domain.

Log in as a local admin, remove machine from the domain, reboot, then join the domain again. There will be no data loss of any sort. Should be done in maybe 5 mins. 10 if you need to reset the local admin password.

Shouldn't all users have the same email signature?

You wouldn't let your users design their own business cards, would you? So, why do you let them design their own email signatures? Think of the damage they could be doing to your brand reputation! Choose the easy way to manage set up and add email signatures for all users.
