Transfer PC from one Windows server domain, to another while retaining desktop setup.
Posted on 2013-12-28
We have recently setup a new sub-office for a client which has its own Windows 2011 SBS server. One of the important staff needed his PC moved quickly, so at present his PC is still part of the domain at the previous office (even though it can't connect to it)
What is the best way to join the PC to the new domain, but retain much of the setup of the users desktop. We tried this one before with poor results. In this case it’s the boss and he’s particular so want to know the best way of achieving this.
Note he's using Windows 7 and both domains had SBS server 2011.
Thanks in advance.
