    Manual Method

    Ref: http://www.winvistatips.com/profile-migration-tool-t711427.html

    =====================

    Open regedit and navigate to
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList]
    and search each entry (look like S-1-5-18, and longer for users), find the
    S-1-5-18??? that lists the new domain users path, this will look like this
    hopefully: ProfileImage %SystemDrive%\Documents and
    Settings\GarryStarck.DOMAIN.LOCAL. Change this path to the older workgroup
    entry, easy tip, the profiles are listed in order of creation date in the
    registry. Do not forget to configure the NTFS permissions on the workgroup
    profile, you can set the new domain user as the owner.

    These are the two methods I use. the 2nd one I use when user profiles are to
    large and take along time to copy. Remeber, only make the change in registry,
    backup the registry 1st, never rename the actual file system folder to match
    the registry. And set permissions, the 1st option has a nifty little check
    box to allow it to set the permissions for the new user

  • we will be changing the Domain name due to merger and want ti keep the user profile, what is the best way to do ?

    Hello,

    To know how domain renaming works: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc738208%28v=ws.10%29.aspx

    "The domain rename operation is not supported in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 or Exchange Server 2010. DNS domain rename is supported in Exchange Server 2003. However, renaming of the NetBIOS domain name is not supported in any version of Exchange Server. Other non-Microsoft applications might also not support domain rename. For more information about other Microsoft applications that are incompatible with domain rename, see article 300684 (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=185229) in the Microsoft Knowledge Base."

    Another option is to create a new domain with different DNS and NetBIOS names. Once done, you can use ADMT to migrate your AD objects to the new domain. You have also to migrate your applications in this case.

  • Hi DD69,

    Thanks for posting here.

    May I know what is functional level of our current AD system ? we may take look the introduction in the article below and perform it , however would suggest to first test in lab before to do that in productions environment

    Administering Active Directory Domain Rename

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc794869(WS.10).aspx

    Meanwhile, like other replies suggested , it is better to do that by creating a new domain system with the name we want and migrating our current objects to it with ADMT.

    Thanks.

  • If you rename the domain, the user profile will not change.

    If it's to access other ressource from another domain, why not making a forest's thrust between the 2 domains? And slowly migrate computer after to domain yyy.
