As much as I know, (and given local user profiles) it is necessary to do a registry update to tell Windows to load the existing profile rather than the new one.

Given roaming profiles, then the local profile would have to be copied to the server. Might be best to reboot the Windows box and log on with local Administrator, make a copy of the user profile
(use InfoZip zip.exe for example), then log on with a Samba domain account to gain network access and copy the backup of the profile to the server.
