Copying Profile in Win 7 and XP after new domain in place
Good morning fellow techs,
I have a problem i hope you can help me with. I am currently updating a school server from 2003 R2 to 2008 R2. The staff laptops all redirect their my documents to the server in a location such as \\servername\users$\ on the old server. I have migrated the documents to the new server which will redirect to \\servername\staff$\%username%\Documents.
On the clients we take them off the domain, rename the old profile to __OldUsername, we then join the new domain, login as the users. All seems to work well. We then reboot, login as the administrator, copy the __OldUsername profile over the top of new user profile. This includes the ntuser.dat. We reboot and everything seems to be ok accept for the folder redirection. I take the profile back to the old location, which i is held in the old ntuser.bat. I have tried editing the ntuser.dat but is like a minefield.
Does anyone have any ideas of how to get around this issue?
