Steps moveuser takes

Discussion in 'Server Migration' started by Brandon Arnold, Aug 2, 2009.

  1. I'm trying to figure out, just so I have a better understanding of how it
    actually works, how the moveuser tool actually does it's job. All I've
    really been able to piece together on my own through observing the changes
    is that it removes the local account from the associated profile directory
    permissions while adding the domain account, changes the permissions in the
    ntuser.dat hive, and changes the SID for the associated account(both the SID
    reg_binary subkey and the string SID "folder/container" key). Past that I
    can't really see what, if any, changes it makes. Can anyone shed some light
    on this for me? A couple days of googling and asking around has turned up
    nothing.

    Thanks,

    Brandon
