Redirected User Profiles on New Server
Posted on 2014-04-04
We are decommissioning the file server that holds our user profiles (profile, desktop, my documents, app data) and moving them to a new machine.
I am hoping that this is going to be as simple as running a backup on the profiles, copying them over, turning the old server off, restoring the profiles on the new machine along with the shares, renaming the new machine to the name of the old machine and changing the fixed IP of the new machine to that of the old.
Could it be that easy?
