Migrating local user profiles to domain profiles

by Codewiz51 27. February 2012 08:44

I set up a home domain yesterday, courtesy of Rose and Dreamspark. Used the free copy of Windows Server 2003. I needed to migrate five local user profiles to domain profiles. This is normally not a minor task. However, there is a new tool on the market. ForensiT. They make a copy available free for personal use. With this tool, it took about 10 minutes to migrate every account.  I even managed not to lose my wifes email, Quickbook or Quicken data!  This tool is definitely gold.  If I were a network admin, I would buy the Pro version in a heartbeat.

Now I can get started with some SQL and SharePoint development.

This blog represents my personal hobby, observations and views. It does not represent the views of my employer, clients, especially my wife, children, in-laws, clergy, the dog, the cat or my daughter's horse. In fact, I am not even sure it represents my views when I take the time to reread postings.  So, take most of what I say with a grain of salt.
