Hello,

I have a slight issue with 2 mac profiles which i am hoping someone will help me out on.

I have a home network and domain, I have 2 profiles Admin and Tom.

Tom is a standard user and no admin rights. Admin is the full admin account.

Out of neglect and stupidity i have been using the admin account as my main account and have everything how i want it setup.
due to the fact that i want to tidy things up and and get off the domain admin i want to transfer everything (settings and so on) from the admin account to the tom account.

Its a kind of migration but not completely if you get want i mean.

So in a sense i am just remapping a profile.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks people

Just change the "Tom" account to one with Admin permissions and then copy the profile from the original admin account to Tom. Is that what you want to do?
