Problem migrating XP local profile to domain profile
Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.configuration_manage (More info?)
As you know when you are joining a computer to a domain, and logon as the domain user it creates a completely different profile. These are the steps I take to do it with Win2k and try to apply the same steps with XP, but does not work.
1. Join computer, logon as a domain user so it creates a profile for the user on a local machine.
2. Logon as domain admin and copy the local profile and overwrite the one that it created in step 1. Assign permission to the domain user, to that profile.
3. Logon as domain user, done.
This DOES NOT work with XP. I always get access denied errors even when doing it when local admin or domain admin account.
