    This article was very helpful, thank you.

    One issue I ran into was the very last listed command:

    sudo chmod -R 755 /Users/USERNAME

    That command made every file in the user's home directory executable. I have very little knowledge of how permission work and what is needed, so I don't know what that command should be but I know that the professor who's local account I migrated to the domain was not happy to find that all his text files were executable and whatever specific permissions he had on other folders and files were reset.

    Hi, Jay, Sorry it took us 3 months to approve your comment! Hm. Not sure what happened there. "chmod -R 755" changes the permission of the folder. It does not alter how they work. Macs can't run .exe (executables) files so I'm guessing this had something to do with a Windows share? I hope you got it all sorted!
