Dear all,

I need help with the domain migration. I have just 10 PC and I have created AD. I just need to move all the data from one profile to another. What can be the process?
I literally don't want to purchase any software. I want to do it manually.
Can anyone help me through the process of registry?

Thank you!

    Logon once as the new domain user so the new profile gets created, then logon as another user with local admin rights, navigate to
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

    find the new domain profile and point the expand string ProfileImagePath to the old profile.

    There are some free tools that you can use for the migration .
