windows domain 2003 issues

hi recently one of our domain server(windows 2003 ) got crashed . we have created new domain and setup active directory .
the problem we are facing is
1) every user while connecting  to the new domain, new profile is getting created.
it is very difficult for us to change each and every user registry setting and change profile.
 2) default shares of all the clients like \\192.168.x.x\c$ for administrator is not working

is there any  way where we can setup the users to access the old profiles only instead of new one.
plz do the needful

You can swing the computers over using a free tool from ForensIT

It should keep the profiles in tact, and I believe you can script it out as well.

Yes, ProfWiz is able to migrate, and should work fine even with dead "source" domains.
But you can't script it if using the free edition. On the other hand, it is not much effort to do the migration manually.

thanks for the information, but the issue while doing manually especially win7  is having  the issues . its creating new profiles. we need to copy all the files of old profile.

does the software which u r mention will help this  issue

Yes. It works best if there is no new profile yet. Log in to the PC as local admin (if not available/known, use domain admin), and call ProfWiz to convert the old domain profile to a new one. If necessary, the PC is added to the new domain too.
