We have a Windows 2008 R2 server with about 50 local accounts (no AD). The server functions as a terminal server for users around the world. We have been having issues with the time zones for users that are outside the country. Someone told me that AD will allow time zone redirection, so we are considering installing that.
My first question is will there be a way to preserve the user accounts, passwords and groups after the AD install? I have seen something called the Windows Server Migration Tool that supposedly will do this - has anyone ever used this and does it work?
Secondly, is AD totally necessary for this? Does anyone know if there is a way to do time zone redirects without AD?
Thanks in advance!
