I understand. Actually, moveuser can be used for Local User Accounts.
Moveuser's syntax is simple:moveuser <sourceuser> <targetuser> [/k]
NOTE: You need log on as someone who has the ability to create and modify
user accounts on both the source and target machines to perform moveuser
For example, let us name the original server as OComputer, and the new
server as NComputer. Suppose OComputer has an account named s1, and
NComputer also has an account s2, as your have used addusers utility to
create the user accounts.
You can use: moveuser s1 s2 /k /y /c:\\NComputer
The /k option is used to copy the profile instead of moving it , and the /y
option is used to tell Moveuser to overwrite the target account profile.
/c: option indicates the target computer.
You can have more details in the following articles.
In addition, there is a third-party tool called MSVR-Migrator, this tool
can fulfill your needs. For more detail, please refer to the following
