Losing desktop, my documents when switching domains
Posted on 2015-02-14
I am moving user workstations from a SBS 2008 domain to a Linux Samba4 DC/AD both domains have the same name: hprs.local (they are not both online at the same time). I remove the workstation form the SBS 2008 domain, then connect to the Samba4. I do create the same user on the Samba4 domain using RSAT. When I log into the new domain as the same user, I have nothing on my desktop except workstation common programs such as anti-virus.
In C:\Users a new user has been created:
C:\Users\mark.hprs SBS 2008 user folder
C:\Users\mark.HPRS.000 Samba4 user folder
I have copied the desktop, favorites, etc. C:\Users\mark.hprs to C:\Users\mark.HPRS.000, and it seems to work, although I haven't checked all icons.
Is there not a way to use the existing user folder instead of creating a new one?
