?! Some more clue, Rowland? I use roaming profiles *AND* folder redirection,
usually... ;-)

I think i'm late.

Con consider that if you have  the same user/login and password on both
domain (NT and AD), you can safely migrate machine (and users) from NT to AD
and keep user access the old server. You need only some attention, eg keep
enabled SMB1 in Ad to access the old server and have a WINS server active on
the network.

Windows (windows, not samba) infact (try to) use domainless user and current
password against other servr/domain, so if login and password match, access
is granted.

This can leave to you time sufficient to plan a smooth upgrade...
