I have the senario below and would like any assistance.

- I have 40 users moving from one workstation to another.
- I have a list of their old and new computer name.
- I logon as the users already on the new 40 workstations to create the local profiles.

I would like a simple script to copy the user's profile like Document, Favorites, Desktop from their old workstation to the new ones.
Perhaps create two text files of the user name with old computer and new computer. The script will read the old computer text file first as IF userA, copy the data from OLD computer1, go to text file for new computer, and compare IF  UserA restore the file to the NEW Computer1.

These are my thoughts, but do not know how to write into a script or any advise would greatly appreciated.

UserA     OLD COMPUTER1
UserB     OLD COMPUTER2

UserA     NEW COMPUTER1
UserB     NEW COMPUTER2
