On a Server 2008 R2 machine, I had an issue demoting from being a Domain Controller, after moving the FSMO roles onto a new machine. This was after a second domain controller died. I am not sure of the previous history of where the FSMO roles were for this client.
Two new DC’s were created and promoted, after cleaning up DNS to remove the old configuration of the dead DC.
I was provided with the following error in a dialog box and in the event log
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
