Starting with Mojave I am utilizing NoMAD & NoMAD Login on the End Users machines to convert AD Accounts to Local User Accounts.
Currently, all macs 10.13 & Before are AD Bound Mobile Accounts.
The Deployment team has had issues when using Migration Assistant to bring everything over 100%.
Has anyone else done this, if so, how did it work for you & what was your workflow?

@Hugonaut this doesn't answer your question, but I would be very careful using Migration Assistant to move users. If a tech selects to migrate everything, in other words everything besides the user's folder, you run a high risk of breaking the jamf binary with a Device Signature Error. Migration Assistant will copy the device certificate from the old machine over to the new machine and that will break Jamf.

Thanks @stevewood very much aware haha (trial by fire some say?)
this is only for specific use cases - in general the deployment team is saving a backup of end users data, wiping the machine & then re-provisioning it.

This might shed some light on it: https://derflounder.wordpress.com/2016/12/21/migrating-ad-mobile-accounts-to-local-user-accounts/

@Hugonaut definitely trial by "shooting yourself in the foot".... ;-) Although I wasn't the one pulling the trigger, I am just the one cleaning up the mess to the tune of a few thousand machines. I would have been remiss if I hadn't mentioned it.
