|Thank you for the reply. I am very new to this so I apologize for the basic level questions.|
When you say "remove the old computer from both dns server [if a static entry] as well as remove the computer account from active directory" I am not sure exactly what you mean. we have local profiles set up on our system, so a user can log into any computer and have access to email and files on the server. Is it possible to just give the new machine the same name as the old machine and join it to the domain?
