Domain Profile Copying After Server Crash
Posted on 2014-02-27
We have three Windows 7 Professional workstations in a domain with SBS 2008 server as DC. The AD and DNS crashed on the server, not allowing any users to login to the server and do anything. We can login via safe mode and back up all the data. So, we are doing a complete rebuild on SBS 2008 server (Dell T310 Poweredge) to start fresh. However, I do not want to completely redo all the workstation profiles (install software, etc.). Is there any way to copy old domain profile to new domain profile? Remember I cannot get into server to do Active Directory replication.
Someone mentioned Forensit's free profile copy utility. I do not know how to use this though. Windows Easy Transfer Wizard was a possibility but I don't think it works with domain profiles.
If anyone has experience with this, please tell me what I need to do. Thanks in advance!!!
