So the 2003 server crashed and now all client pc's are temporarily connecting to a NAS device for data access.
They are able to log into their W7 domain profiles on their individual computers because they are cached. There is no domain controller to authenticate, nor will there be until after the 2012R2 Essentials server is in place.
What I'm trying to find out is how I will manage to preserve the profiles on the workstations.
I'm hoping that the "transfer profile" feature that happens shortly after running the connect software (//servername/connect) to the 2012 server will do it seamlessly.
I'm worried though that there will be some reason it's not allowed to happen.
Has anyone had a chance to try this?
If not, any suggestions on the best and quickest to duplicate the old domain profile to a new domain profile?
