Profwiz: Migrating users profiles to a new domain

So a colleague of mine introduced me to this great tool, ForensiT User Profile Wizard.

We were migrating a customer from one domain to a new one, and there is a lot of data stored in the local profile of the users. So we needed a way to move this data into the new profile they will receive when the machine is moved into the new domain.

Note: This is about local machine profiles, and not those on a file server.

1. Login with existing domain\username on the machine, run the Profwiz.exe

  • Enter the new domain name
  • Enter the account name of the user on the name domain

profwiz-1

2. Select the local profile on the machine that needs migrating to the account on the domain.

profwiz-2

3. Input the account information which has the rights to add the computer to the new domain.

profwiz-3

4. Review the information, and click ok. This will then migrate the profile and add the machine to the new domain and reboot the machine.

Viola, easy as that!!!!
