I recently took over as the network admin for a small manufacturing firm. It's grown from a small mom and pop shop into a medium-sized business over the past few years, and as such trying to manage everything in the current workgroup setup is getting incredibly unwieldy. We also have an office in another state that I'm supposed to be the admin over, but in reality have no effective control over with the existing set up.
I've found this ForensIT tool that should make migrating people's existing local computer profiles over to their new Active Directory ones fairly easy. As I'm sure my fellow net admins can relate, employees utterly hate any changes to a different way of doing things. If I can at least make the transition as seamless as possible that should make both my - and their - lives easier.
Of course, I'd love any other suggestions ya'll may have on what I can do to make this as easy and seamless as is humanly possible.
