Hi all,

When a client computer joins a domain, is there any syncronization tool that
helps me to merge Local user which previously used and the domain user's
files/programs/all settings etc?

what is the best practice?

thanks

Not really. You'd need to log on with a new domain user account and
after the first successful log on, copy the local user's profile over
the domain user profile (or merge them).

Cheers,
Florian

You can consider Prof Wiz from forensit
(http://www.forensit.com/domain-migration.html). This tool does exactly
what you are looking for - migrating from workgroup profiles to domain
profiles.
