Windows Profile Utility

by on Dec.30, 2009, under Windows Info

Have you ever needed to move a workstation from one Active Directory domain to another, and retain all local user profile information for the new domain? It’s really a hassle. Sure, you can try Windows Easy Transfer, or File and Settings Transfer Wizard, but it’s a crap shoot as to whether or not it will work correctly… Recently, when a client’s SBS 2003 server died, and had to be replaced, a friend shared an *AWESOME* utility with me. (Thanks, Kevin.. I owe you one)
It’s called the “User Profile Wizard 3.0”, and is available for download from the fine folks at ForensIT here:
You can assign an old pre-existing profile to a new domain user, and the application handles all registry ACLs, SIDs, and can even join the new domain for you. You must have this tool in your arsenal, hurry and download before Microsoft buys it up.. :)
