In the forest that we're migrating to, users and computers are in different domains (the users are in the parent domain, and computers live in a child domain).

Is it possible to script the User Profile Wizard to join the computer to one domain but migrate user accounts to a different domain? For instance, can I specify DOMAIN\username in the user mapping CSV file or something along those lines?

Hi Jeremy,

Yes, it is certainly possible to do this. The best way is probably to customize the migration script. Generate a script that just migrates the user accounts to the parent domain but does not join the domain, then add some additional code to call Profwiz.exe a second time just to join the machine to the child domain (but not migrate any profiles.)

If you neeed any help with this, let us know.
