Recover user settings and profile after Changing domain

1007 Views, 5 Replies

We had to migrate from one domain to annother on our network. This meant that each user had to create a new profile.

Before we migrated I tried to back up the user data from the old user but once I am up an running agian all the AutoCad settings are no longer included. I understand you can export those while you are logged in and can see the macros etc. can you simply move the files that store that information (I can still access all the files from that user I just can't login as that user anymore)

 

any assitance would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

 

The settings for the user are in the registry but most of the user defined files for AutoCAD can be found in the following folders, some of which may be empty depending on what tools were used.

 

Windows 7 -->> C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2011\R18.1\enu
Windows XP -->> C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2011\R18.1\enu

 

AssetLibrary
Data Links
LanguagePack
Materials
Migration
Plotters
Recent
Support <----------------------- Primary folder for user customization files (Menu files, Linetypes, acad.pgp). This folder also contains sub folders for tool palettes and Icons.

 

Windows 7 -->> C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2011\R18.1\enu
Windows XP -->> C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2011\R18.1\enu

I hope this helps.

so what do we need to do to get the program to function when the user is logged into the new domain?
