Windows 7: How to re-join a Domain with new workstation?

How to re-join a Domain with new workstation?

I'm helping a Dental Office get their current workstations upgraded. All workstations are complete and ready to swap out the old hardware, except i am worried that when the users go to log back into the domain from the new pc's, they won't be able to.

The previous IT guy said they are local profiles, located on each individual PC and not on the server? I thought setting up a Domain was so people could log in from any computer on the network?

Welcome Garetron to the windows 7 forums.

What kind of server are you using? Windows 2008R2 or whatever?

Most servers will create a profile when the authorized user first login to the domain unless you have specified a profile on the server via Active Directory.

Assuming also that the workstations are windows 7 pro or above?
