    I have a WXP Pro SP2 computer that is a member of a domain. The user on the
    machine has been logging on to "this computer" at log on rather than the
    domain. He has limited access to resources, printers, etc.
    1. Is the fact he has not been logging onto the domain the reason for the
    limited domain access?
    2. If I change the computer to default to the domain when he logs on cause
    his account settings to be lost/ or is there a way to migrate these account
    settings to his domain profile?

    Thanks,

  2. 1. Almost surely this is the cause.

    2. Use the "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard" to save his settings while
    logged onto the PC, then re-load them after he logs onto the domain.
