    Posted: 16 Aug 2018 at 6:06pm
Hello,

I tried Forensit User Profile Wizard and it seems to be working. I still have doubts with some details:

    1) I have an old domain with the AD name corp.local and the netbios name CORP.
    2) I have a new domain with the AD name ad.corp.com and the netbios name CORP (the same netbios name as the old one)
    3) With the Active directory domain and trust other FQDN was created on the new AD, corp.com
    4) The reason for that domain to be added was because I'm using Azure AD Connect to synchronize the new on premise AD with Azure/Office365 AD (the old AD is not synchronized with Azure/Office365) and in Office365 the user accounts are jdoe@corp.com and not jdoe@ad.corp.com
    4) I'm going to move the users from AD copr.local to AD ad.corp.com but I want to keep the user's local profile located in C:\USERS
    5) I used Forenseit with a test account and it works.

Questions:

    1) At the AD after adding the users I went to properties, account tab and change the domain of the user logon name from @ad.corp.com to @corp.com. Since I want the users to end like jdoe@corp.com, What domain do I have to specify in the tool, ad.corp.com or corp.com?
    2) The computer already have the local user's profile for the old AD. Do I have to remove the computer from the old AD and add it to the new AD before using Forensit?
    3) Before using Forensit I noticed that after removing the computer from the old AD and adding the computer to the new AD after I log to the new AD two profile directories for the user were available. C:\Users\jdoe for the old AD and C:\Users\jdoe.CORP for the new AD. What directory is modify by Forensit? Which directory can I delete after using Forensit?
    4) Do I have to log with an account from the new AD before I can migrate the user? Can I use a local administrator account of the computer (not domain) to run the tool? Can I use the tool with the same user account to move his own profile? even if the user is not an administrator of the local computer?
    
Thanks!

Well I receive no responce to my questions so this is what I did:

1) Create user account on new AD
2) Create local admin account on computer
3) Remove computer from old domain
4) Log with local admin account and add computer to new domain
5) Log with local admin again and ran Forensit Profile Wizard
6) Reboot the computer and log as the new user

Everything seems to be working fine except that now Office365 Onedrive for business is not working. When a file is accesed directly there are permisisons errors and when the file is accessed with any Office application it keep asking for credentials.
