I just set up a new 2012 R2 box to replace 2003.
I already disjoined one workstation from the old domain and joined it to the new, and I have two more to go.
My challenge is that any time I rejoin a domain, a new user is created. I get the "Preparing Desktop" message, and then Once the blank desktop appears I need to find the user's old desktop. move those files over, move IE favorites over, same for documents and then the biggie - Setting up a new Outlook account to work with the existing pst.
Is there a way to join/rejoin a domain without a new user being automatically created? In this case, the domain name is precisely the same as the old and the user names are the same. The Server 2003 box is completely retired and the new 2012 R2 box has taken its place.
Thanks for any help!
