We are doing a project where we are taking all of the older names in AD that are composed of someone's initials instead of the first name and last name and changing them to the first name and last name. Well on the local machine(XP) the local profile is still named the initials of the person but when the user logs in with their new name it picks up the old profile and uses it but it doesn't change the name of the old profile. So the local profile on the machine stays the initials and the user only sees that their network login has changed. Now this presents a problem because the Technicians in my organization when they trouble shoot space issues on a pc or if a user has a corrupted profile and they look in documents and settings and don't see a profile that matches the users name they will start deleteing profiles. Is there a tool out there that will change the name of the local profile of the machine for me so that it matches the name and SID of the name in AD? I know this is a longshot but I had to try. Thanks
