Running connector after PC was joined to domain manually

The previous IT person at this company joined the Windows 7 Pro PCs to the Windows Server Small Business 2011 Essentials server the old way - Right clicking Computer >> Properties and manually joining the domain.

The computers (of course) do NOT show in the Dashboard to be managed for backup or Remote Web Access.

Wondering what would happen to the user profiles that are on the computers if I re-ran the connector program (http://<servername>/connect).

I want to add the computers to the dashboard, but I don't want to lose the settings for Outlook, desktop icons, etc. that are part of the profiles that are working perfectly on each computer.
