Based on my understanding, your scenario is:
I assume you have one client computer (computerA), and it is now in
domainA. An user named user1 (domainA\user1) use this computer. Some days
later, you want to remove this computer from domainA and want to join it to
another domain, domainB. However, you want the user use account user1
(domainB\user1) to log on to the computer in the new domain with existing
user profile. You don't want to use ADMT to perform this migration, right?
If I have any misunderstanding, please let me know.
Well, this can be achieved by using USMT. You can do it as follows:
1. Log on to the computerA with an administrative account (Administrator)
in domainA. Then run the following command:
scanstate \\fileserver\migration\mystore /ue:*\* /ui:domainA\user1
/i:miguser.xml /i:migapp.xml /o
2. Remove the computerA from domainA.
3. After creating a new user "user1" in domainB and joining computerA to
domainB, you should log onto computerA with an administrative account
(Administrator) in domainB.
4. Run the following command on computerA:
loadstate \\fileserver\migration\mystore /mu:domainA\user1:domainB\user1
5. Log on to computerA with the new user account (e.g. domainB\user1), see
it the user profile has been migrated successfully.
With this method, you don't need to create trust between domainA and
domainB. However, you need to create a new user domainB\user1 for
I have checked this on my test environment, and I would like to know how it
goes on your side.
Additionally, if you want to perform this job via the WMI provider, the
