When you use a computer running Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional, you are not able to copy the attributes of a user account in Microsoft Management Console (MMC).


This issue occurs because, unlike Microsoft Windows NT Workstation 4.0, Windows 2000 Professional does not allow you to copy the attributes of an existing user account to a new user account to create a template.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional.
