    How about copying the Domain copy into Default User or Default profile.

      Personally i hate copying profiles.

      But if you really need to then its the same process.

            When looking for specific resources for domain to local migration I came across this thread on the TechNet forum which suggests the process to be as follows:

            1. Create a local profile
            2. Copy domain profile to local profile

            A recommended tool for profile migration is the User State Migration Tool (USMT). For more information on this tool please defer to the following resources Windows 7 Walkthrough: User State Migration Tool and Migrating Files from Windows XP to Windows 7 in the event you are migrating from one Windows operating system to another. It’s a good idea to be sure of all that USMT migrates as can be found in What does USMT Migrate?. This is an excellent read as it outlines default migration scripts, user data, operating system components, supported applications and even what USMT does not migrate. Another helpful video that outlines the efficiency of USMT’s Hard-Link Migration feature can be found here.

            When copying user profiles it is important to remember and verify the following:

            • You cannot copy or delete a user profile that belongs to the currently logged on user or any user whose profile is in use.
            • If you copy the profile to a new location, you must update the User Profile Path entry for the user's account to refer to this new location as well. Another resource for guidance with the USMT is the Step-by-Step migration guide for USMT 4.0. As the guide states, USMT 4.0 is now included with the Windows Automated Installation Kit (AIK) for Windows 7 for which the ISO is available here.

              @Jessica -- Does USMT now support domain to local profiles? -- AFAIK it is still only between domain environments and at least one MS link (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l...(v=ws.10).aspx) more or less says that.

                Tom,

                According to this TechNet article under "The LoadState Process" the 3rd bullet point for key point #3 is: "For each user profile selected from the store, LoadState creates a corresponding user profile on the destination computer. The destination computer does not need to be connected to the domain for domain user profiles to be created. If USMT cannot determine a domain, it attempts to apply the settings to a local account. For more information, see Identify Users."

                I have just tried the steps I recommended and outlined above and USMT did indeed migrate all user accounts on computer a (domain joined) to computer b (not domain joined).

                Hope this helps!

                  I actually ended up using Easy Migration wizard.
                  Sure, not as cool, or time effective as scripting it with usmt etc.. but meh
                  and in honesty... writing and testing the usmt scripts in this instance would have been a poor use of time.. would have taken me longer than it did
