Hi Guys, i have recently upgraded server from win2k3 to win2k8 (when i say recently i mean today :)) users use the old win2k3 machine to login via terminal services to use the machine, what do i need to do on the new machine so they keep their profiles?

i know i will also have to change the nat so it points to new server for TS,

Migrating profiles between machines is tricky.  If you were using folder redirection, there's less of a need to do that. What's in the profiles you want to keep?  I might have the users log in and then copy the contents over manually, depending on the number of users/what needs to be moved.
