Q

Can I give a local machine profile permissions throughout the domain?

Is it possible to add a profile that is already on a local machine so that it has permissions throughout the domain, without copying the profile over to the server? I have an account on a local machine that has admin privileges. I want to create the same user permissions and user login name on the server, and have them work throughout the domain. It would be nice to not have to copy the entire profile over, but just to have the same login and permissions that work on the local machine as well as the network.
A profile is a set of desktop and application options. A profile does not grant or deny permissions. If you create a user account on the domain, you will need to change the permissions on the profile to allow that account access to it (or more properly copy the profile to a server).
