We have deployed a new Windows Server 2012 Active Directory infrastructure for an environment that previously contained no central mechanism for user authentication. All client computers are Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks that use local accounts. My objective is to retain the data in the local user accounts stored in /Users but allow the AD user to gain ownership so the local accounts can be decommissioned. The home folders will remain local - they will not be network or mobile homes.
For example: A computer has a local account with shortname
johndoe and matching home folder
/Users/johndoe. I create a new user in Active Directory with shortname
john. I want to be able to remove the OS X local user
johndoe leaving its home folder behind. Then rename
/Users/jon to match the AD user shortname and allow the AD user to adopt this local home folder.
How might I accomplish this?
