    admt tool. If I logon to local computer used a new DC, the local user
    profile will create a new profile or use a old local profiles??

    If you have logged in to that computer before, you will use your old local
    profile. Else you will get a new profile when you logon for the first time.

    You can make copies of localprofiles to a new machine if you want.

  3. Hello,

    Thanks for your posting here.

    You can run Computer Migration or Security Translation with local profile
    to migrate all the user profiles. It will re-ACL the original user profile
    so that migrated user can access to the same resource and use the old user

    If it creates a new profile for the migrated user accounts, you can refer
    to the steps in the following article to manually associate the original
    profile with the new domain user.
