Convert Local Account's Home to AD account with Local Home

Here is a script that I use to convert a local home folder to be used by an Active Directory account. This script will rename the home folder first, then delete the local user account from NetInfo and rename the home folder back and change the permissions so the AD account can use the home folder. This script is Tiger only.

Please read the script before using so you understand how it works. It's not terribly complicated.

Use at your own risk!

thanks for the script- does this still work with Leopard ?

No, it won't work with Leopard because this script deletes the user account from NetInfo which no longer exists in Leopard.
