When you copy user profiles to another location, you can optionally change who is permitted to use a profile by selecting from a list of users and groups from the local computer account database (for a member server or Windows 2000 Professional-based client), a domain account database, or any trusted domain account database.

However, if the host domain is a Microsoft Windows NT 4.0-based domain, there is no option to select either the computer's domain or any trusted domain.
