I'm trying to move a profile from a domain to a local profile. I am using http://itswapshop.com/tutorial/how-migrate-local-profiles-domain-profiles-5-minutes-using-registry-tweak-windows-xp-and-7 as a guide.
When I get to the registry part I can't modify the registry for one of the profiles. I need to just tweak the path.. Or to delete it so windows can recreate it? It won't let me do anything to it. I have no idea how to fix this. It says I don't have access. I don't know how to do permissioning on a registry key.
I had issues with the same profile not letting me modify the C:\Documents and Settings\[username] folder. It says it's a windows system folder and won't let me modify it. I checked permissions and couldn't get it to work for the longest time. I finally booted into safe mode and finally got it to let me change the name to [username].[domain]. I think it was changing the ownership and doing the replacing child items thing that fixed it.
How do I fix this? I'm trying to move over 20 computers and each seems to have it's own new little problem.
In trying to move a profile from domain to local a new user was set up. When I tried to log into the new user it wouldn't let me on as if it had the wrong password. I didn't set up the user so I thought maybe the other person put the wrong password in. I logged into the admin and reset the password (maybe stupid?). I then tried to log into the new local account and now it had a screen that pops up and says that it couldn't load the profile with a count down timer. There is only the option to say ok. Then it brings you to the log in. I wasn't sure what to do so I just rebooted and tried again. I logged into an admin account and looked around but didn't see anything to do. I tried to log in again and now it is loading a temp profile, but I can't seem to get the account to load. Is this a corrupt account? Did resetting the password screw it up? I saw the warning, but since it was a brand new account I though it wouldn't be a problem.
Looking online it seems that fixing a corrupt profile is done by creating a new user profile and copying over settings. This means a new username right? There is no way to keep the same login username if you do that correct? If I delete [username1] it can't be ever used again? I can only do other unique names? Is that right? Even if the registry key is deleted?
