Alter-Ego is an automated profile and domain migration system for Microsoft Windows® systems. From a central console, Alter-Ego is able to simultaneously move PCs and user profiles between domains or workgroups without desktop visits or scripting.
Description: Domain or workgroup transitions can incur a significant cost for any business.
Migrating PCs to the new network configuration usually requires time-consuming desktop visits, with the number of systems that can be migrated simultaneously being limited by the number of technicians available to manually migrate each system. This means network migrations can require hours, days, or longer to complete in their entirety.
Migrations also typically mean new user accounts -- and new security identifiers (SIDs) -- resulting in the need for changes to file and registry permissions for users to retain their old user profiles. Not only is this process time consuming, it can easily result in data loss if performed incorrectly.
Alter-Ego drastically reduces or eliminates the need for desktop visits during any domain transition and requires no scripting expertise. From a central console IT support can initiate and monitor the simultaneous migration of any number of PCs between domains or workgroups while also moving or copying user profiles to new user accounts.
Push-style deployment allows migrations to be completed on your schedule or after-hours. No user interaction is needed and physical access to the PCs is not required. In addition, no scripting is required. Deployment, execution, and clean-up are all automated. Migrations can be quickly prepared by importing PCs and users through Active Directory integration and text files.
