I have 45 users on a Linux workgroup.  I am installing a Windows Server 2012 R2 standard Domain controller.  Someone mentioned that I may be able  buy some software that will convert the profiles for me rather than doing each one individually.  Any suggestions?

https://www.forensit.com/domain-migration.html is a good solution that I've used in the past. The free version basically creates a symbolic link between workgroup and domain users. The paid version will allow you to fully migrate all profile data between user accounts on the local machines. They may have added some more features than I've had access to in the past, so I don't know the full capabilities. It is the most recommended solution for Profile migration, though.
