Maintain User Desktop Profile


C

Connect IT

Hi All, I am about to migrate a clients server to RAID 5 and in doing so will
need to tatally re-build the sever. When that is accomplished and the users
log in, even though the server name and domain remain the same, the XP client
desktop will revert back to the default. Is there any way of maintaining the
current user desktop profile... short of backing up the profile and copying
it into the new profile once it is created?

Thanks in advance,

Perhaps you have left out something - but unless these users are utilizing
roaming profiles and/or you are changing the domain completely so that the
machines will have to join the new domain (even if it is of the same name) -
the users will not get new local profiles.

Are you rebuilding a domain from scratch and if so - why?
