Hello,

I'm setting up a Windows server at home and would like to make a small
Active Directory, in part to help learn more about AD but also to make
it easier for the various computers on my home network to communicate
with one another.

Problem is each computer has TONS of stuff setup under each person's
profile.  I know if I create new logins for the domain it'll create
new profiles, but is there any way to use the existing profiles on the
new domain?  The only way I can think of is to rename Default User
profile and one by one rename the user's profile to Default User, have
them login and get all their stuff back.  Surely though there's a
simpler way to do th is.

Suggestions?

Thanks --

Alex
