I have a user who has a local profile that we want to be using a domain joined profile. The problem is his job role includes a lot of software/files and the new profile won't have permissions to all these things.
Is there any way to copy permissions from his existing local profile to his domain joined profile?
This script should do the trick.
This script assumes that the computer is set to create a mobile account on login.
#!/bin/sh OLDUSER="" NEWUSER="" mv /Users/$OLDUSER /Users/$NEWUSER chown -R $NEWUSER /Users/$NEWUSER #Clean up the old mobile account dscl localhost delete /Local/Default/Users/$OLDUSER
Just a quick 1, If I was migrating data from a domain user to another computer. What would be your advisable steps for migrating the data also I have seen the permission error pop up before.
