Hello, I have 5 computers that are currently in workgroup configuration that I need to add to a Windows domain.
When I do this, I will copy the contents of their documents folder across to their new profile.  What other things should I be aware of i.e. checking that their installed programs still work correctly ? etc.

Thanks for any info on what things I should be checking after they have been transferred over to domain accounts.

thanks for that.
Would you recommend using 'Easy Transfer' or just the profile copy method under system advanced settings ?

Are there any advantages of either of the above two methods ?

THanks kindly.
