I am looking for some advice on licences plus a couple of other things.

Our company is relocating to a new office. As part of this move we have decided to build a new Domain along with a new network.

As it currently stands, the plan is to have a few techs at the front of the new building switch people over to the new domain as they come in. As we only have about 125 people, this should not be too difficult (We are also staging peoples arrival time into groups to keep the crush down a bit).

I have been unable to suss out whether the Professional or Corporate edition would be more suited for our use.

Also, I noticed in testing that the "free" version seemed to require cached credentials for a Domain Admin account from the old Domain on the machine to work. Is this in fact the case?

Thanks!

Hi,

Whether you choose the Professional or Corporate Edition is really down to how you plan to do the migrations. If you intend to migrate the machines manually using the GUI, then the Professional Edition will probably meet your needs. If you want to automate the migrations, you will need the Corporate Edition. There is a feature comparison here: http://www.forensit.com/comparison.html - http://www.forensit.com/comparison.html

User Profile Wizard requires no access to the old domain and so does not require any Domain Admin credentials for the old domain. It does require administrator access to the workstation, so if you get administrator access to the PCs using the (old) domain admin account, those credentials probably would have to be cached.

Will local administrator access suffice as well?

Yes. Any account with administrator access to the machine.
