Migrating to new domain (Profile migration)

By superdave67

  1. I've got about 15 users who need to be migrated from an old domain to a new domain (company acquisition) on their existing laptops. They want to keep all the normal stuff, My Documents, Desktop, Favorites... but they will be changing email servers.

    I've been told to use the Windows File and Settings Transfer Wizard, but I can't get it to work effectively, if at all. Is this the correct tool to accomplish the migration, or is there something else I should be doing?

    Thanks all,
    Dave

    I don't think so. The Profile Migration tool moves a users documents/settings from
    one client system to another client system.

    The Email settings are there too, but you're moving too much; you only need to edit the settings.

    In a Domain Controller / Exchange Srvr environment, you may need to move the
    server-side user data, but I'm not sure that the Migration tool addresses that at all.
