  • Moving users settings/files


    I have a network with 6 workstations and 1 server, with no AD. This weekend we are installing AD on the network and adding all workstations to the AD.

    Only problem is, all the clients at the office have lots of settings which need to be saved such as word templates, email signitures, outlook settings etc.

    When I add the workstation to the AD, they will logon to the domain instead of their computer. This will be a new user account where they wont have any of their settings and files.

    How can I move ALL and i mean ALL settings/outlook signitures/my documents contents etc from the account they have on their pc to the account they have when they logon via the domain?

    Thanks a lot in advance.
