With Windows XP, if I wanted to add a user logging in locally on their computer to a domain and keep their local profile, I could change the profile location in the registry for the domain profile to point at the local profile. I did this by changing the entry in \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
With Windows 7, if I try the same thing the user logs in with a 'temporary' profile. I have tried changing the permissions of the local users profile folder to give the domain profile full ownership and also added the domain profile as a local admin, still doesnt work.
Does anyone know how to get this to work? Or is there a better way to migrate profiles in Win7 that doesn't involve waiting around while all files are copied from the local profile to the domain profile?
