Does anyone have a clue for me on how I can actually use the
Win32_UserProfile WMI as a replacement for moveuser.exe?
I have read the KB article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/930955
other links I have found from it, but I am pretty mystified about how
to use it. All I want to do here is the equivalent of moveuser to turn
a local user into a domain user. The "replacement" appears to be
intended to be much more powerful than what it replaces, but it's also
correspondingly less clear.
Here's my problem. My domain username is "prn" (don't ask. :-( It
stems from my unix usage and I was less than happy to discover the
problems with it, but changing it would entail lots of other
inconvenience). So, when I have set myself up on various WinXP boxes,
my procedure has been roughly as follows: I initially create a local
user, e.g. "paul". I also create a local administrator (if I didn't
get one by default in the install). I install the Resource Kit tools,
join the domain. reboot. log on as the administrator and do:
moveuser paul DOMAIN\prn /k
This way, I can log on to the domain as prn but my local files are
kept in c:\Documents and Settings\paul whick is a directory/folder
that can actually exist, unlike ...\prn, which is assumed to be a
printer so it cannot be created.
Now I am trying to set up a machine with Vista and I found the KB
article, but I can't figure out from that article what I need to to
that would be more or less equivalent to the command line above.
Any clues for the clueless?
