I have a weird situation. I have computers that are already in a domain and we are migrating them to a new domain. BOTH domains use Folder Redirection for MyDocs and Desktop files.

Has anyone done this or have any tips? Right now my plan is fairly annoying:

Undo Folder Redirection on old domain so that data copies to the local PC.
Remove PC from the domain with ForensIT so the user becomes a local user.
Add PC to new domain with ForensIT and log on as user.
Data should copy to new server.

I have to do some testing still. This seems fairly labor-intensive and reboot-heavy and there's plenty of places where things can go wrong. Any ideas for how to do this easily? This is about 15-20 workstations.
