I seem to have my new server running fine.  I do have a problem with my
Windows Profiles though.  I logged in as a local admin to copy
user_oldserver_profile to user_newserver_profile, but I cannot do that
since it shows the profiles from the oldserver as unknown.

I am only going to copy a few of the admins profiles and the rest I am not
worrying about.  I see a couple of ways of doing this.  I could get my
oldserver up, login in as a local user and copy the oldserver profile to a
local profile and then login to my new server and copy that local profile
to the newserver profile.

I guess I could also put both servers online, but since they are running
the same domain name, couldn't that mess things up?  If I were to do that
then I would need to set the oldservers 'os level' to something lower than
the newserver's, 'preferred master = no' and 'domain master = no',

I just don't want to cause problems with having two domain servers that
have the same domain (workgroup = BES) on the network.  I can always do it
the first way, but the second would be easier.

BTW, the usernames have changed is why I am having to move some profiles. 
I changed them from lastname.first_initial to first_initial.lastname.

Thanks for any info.
