  1. The current domain has corruption and we have tried ADMT in the past and it carried over the issues. NETDOM is doing the job nicely... I wrote a script (in linux) that takes the export list of computers from the current domain and writes a batch file of NETDOM's to move ALL computers. Now I have another issue... profiles... we are using local profiles for all users (animation studio... cant have their temp work on the server)... so right now when they log on they load c:\users\doug.domainName and after the move it will load c:\users\doug.newDomain So.. I need a way to migrate all local accounts to the new one flawlessly .. and I have to be able to execute this transition from the domain server so preferably cmds and not full programs. Also... IF possible, some machines (very few) are windows xp... so the profile locations are different. Any suggestions?
  2. ya I drew a blank on that... also you can export the list right from the Active Directory Users and Computers GUI... so I have the list.. Has anyone tried using a list with netdom before?
  3. Here is my issue... I have a Windows Server 2003 and my Domain/DNS controller and its all messed up. I have given up on fixing it as its corrupted. So moving forward I have a new domain server going in place of it. With a new domain name and everything. Is there a way to (from the old domain server while its still up).. force ALL the computers that are domain members to drop their current domain and join the new one? without having to visit each machine? EDIT: I have it figured out this far NETDOM MOVE /DOMAIN:[domain-name] [comp-name] /USERD:[domain-name]\ADMINISTRATOR /PASSWORDD:[admin-password] unfortunately I am new to this job and had no control over the original naming convention, so I need a way to do this on ALL computers as part of the current domain without having to list out their names (or if there is an easy way to get a list of their names from the current domain ... that would work too)
  4. I am looking for an easy way to push out silent installs over a group of computers in the office on a domain. I have looked into using GPO's but I do not want the user to have to go into Add/Remove Programs. We are using Windows 2003 Standard edition. The main issues are that I need to pick and choose computers within the domain for this to occur on, if I can do it by grouping thats fine too. The install just has to be silent as I cannot disrupt my users. Any Advice?

  6. Works like a charm, the entire process is running from a usb stick so certmgr.exe never even hits the system dirve. You guys have been insanely helpfull. For anyone reading this post who thinks a step was skipped, to get Novell.cer simply install novell client normally in windows 7, then run certmgr.msc and export the certificate. Thanks again
  7. I notice certmgr.exe isnt native to windows, comes with the windows SDK, can I simply install the SDK and pull just that exe after the install?
  8. Hello everyone, I have always turned to this site for solutions, and today I came up empty handed for the first time in a long long time, so I figured its time to register and ask. I am using WPI to install a bunch of software and save me some time, new to my list is Novell Client 2 SP1 for windows 7. And it isn't completely silent/unattended.. I dont much care for what comes up on the screen during the install, as long as it doesnt ask questions. During the install I am prompted by windows with the following message. I know this is more to do with windows then Novell however to be full in my explanation I have included the 2 files controlling my unattended install. I am using the command ACU.exe /NCPF /D:no to launch the install. I would like to eliminate the prompt... any suggestions?
