Server 2008r2 copying user accounts

I have Windows Server 2008 R2 with Active Directory. How can I use another created “user account” to establish another account on the same system? I figure copying a model account and editing it is what comes to mind.

Within AD User and computer, you select the user whose settings you want to copy, and right click and select copy.  Note you only copying AD user account settings, nothing else.

While the copying of profiles was possible with windows XP, there is a different procedure for doing that for windows 7, windows server 2008 users.

Here is a reference on customizing the default user account.
