>From what I remember of using a system under this type of profile in my 
previous job, there were 2 home directories created when logging in locally 
versus logging in with the domain login.

For example, I had rpollard as a local user on the computer I used and I had 
rpollard with a domain login and a profile.

Correct me if I'm wrong but when I create these profiles on the domain 
server and the user logs in, they will lose all of their personal setting 
because it creates a new home directory?

If this is true, how do I make the transition seamless to using domain based
