New User Added to Domain, Migrate Old Local User Docs to New D

The only one I have had is if the workstation IP is different that the domain
IP, or you use dhcp for the domain, you may have to change the ip addy on the
workstation to match the domain ip network to connect to the server, but
sometimes I dont even need to do that, so if you try it and you cant get to
that page, try changing the IP address. (and subnet/gatway too)

Well, I've deleted the new user and computer from SBS domain.

Now when using http:\\servername\connectcomputer,

I get a login screen. Only XXXX@XXXXX.COM /password works,
and then the only user that I can migrate is administrator, as he's the only
user that exists on the server.

I guess I'm missing something, I was expecting to be able to migrate a local
user to the domain...

Ok, after running connnectcomputer again I successfully migrated the user
and his files to the domain login name.

There was one problem, though--the Outlook 2k3 refused to migrate the old
PST
file--it claimed it didn't exist in the listed location, despite the fact
that it was in fact there.

After completing the client setup and outlook install wizard, I simply
imported the file and it worked fine.

My guess is there was something about the synchronization--the PST was
stored under MyDocs, and perhaps PST's don't get synched and copied to the
server, so the Outlook install wizard was actually looking at the server
MyDocs, rather than locally? Maybe I should have typed a full
reference in the location when it prompted, i.e.
\\localipaddress\mydocsetcetc

One slight gotcha I discovered involves Outlook. Migrating peer users that
used POP email with PST files.

In the old network config, I'd configured the PST's to be in a subfolder of
My Docs to enable easier backup configurations. The SBS synchronizing
mechanism reports an error on these files, (PST files won't synchronize) and
there were a few pc's on which the Outlook 2k3 choked on not finding a data
file to migrate.

Also, on all pc's, PST files didn't import to the Exchange Mailbox, but to a
personal folders account. Probably expected behaviour, but sort of clumsy
and confusing for users not adept at manipulating outlook data files. I
went around and manually imported the PST's into the Mailbox for the users,
so that Calenders and such were all in one spot...
