We have an NT4 machine which is our PDC. I'm looking to replace this with
one of our linux servers. I joined the linux server to the domain ok.
Then I vampired all the accounts across which worked ok. I then switched
off NT PDC, made samba the master and start samba service. Problem is we
are loosing all our settings. After a quick hunt around I noticed a new
profiles directory was created on my machine.
Say we have a domain called MORGAN and a user called jbarnes: when using
the NT4 PDC he had a directory under Documents and Settings called
jbarnes. When he logged on to the linux PDC a new folder was created
Users loose all their settings :(
Can we make windows use the same profiles directory after migration?
Why is windows creating a new profile folder?
Thanks in advance.
