I recently installed a new server running server 2008R2 on the network.  It is a small network with a very sick server 2003 running.  The FSMO all transferred as expected, and all domain users [roaming domain profiles worked fine.

I was not able to demote the old server using dcpromo.  I had to use dcpromo /forceremoval.

I ran the metadata cleanup processes and all seemed to go well.

I now have an issue when logging on to the new server [old one is not on line] with the users on their workstations.  The Roaming Profile cannot be found and a comment that "possible attempt to compromise" shows up in the User profile error.

The domain has always been name.url.com, but the user was NAME\User.  I get the same results using name.url.com\User as using the old pre 2000 method of NAME\User.

Is there any way to connect the old profile other than remove the workstation to a workgroup and then reconnect to the new server domain.  Will I need to delete the users and recreate them?
