How To

When performing a PCT migration the user profile is created as USERNAME.DOMAIN instead of USERNAME.  The account is local.  Why can I not deploy a package containing a domain user and have the profile set up as a domain account?  Why is it a local accout?



The account used to migrate the personality package must have rights to create domain accounts on the local PC.  This is one of many reasons we suggest a Domain Administrator account be used to perform PCT migrations.


Use a domain account that has rights to create users on the local machine.  A Domain Administrator would be best.
