Hi,

I am using ADMT to migrate objects from a W2K3 forest to a new W2K3 forest.
I already have migrated Users and Groups, that is ok.
Now, I want to migrate the Windows XP SP3 workstations and its users profile.
I have migrated some workstations successfully but when the user log on the
new forest the profile is not the same tha source forest.
The logs don´t show no errors.
Anyone knows what could be happened? I checked to migrate Registry, Local
Profile, Shares...

Thanks.

Luiz

Did you opt to use the Security translator during the migration?

Read the following thread for more info. I hope it helps.

Hi Ace,

thank you for the response.
Yes, I did opt for Security Translation.
I believe that I found the problem:
- when I select the workstation, the next window is about what to do with
the profile: Replace, Add and Modify.
I have choosen the Add option so I believe the profile is added, not replaced.

Don´t you agree with me?


Best Regards.

Luiz

Hmm... I would select modify. Set up a test user account, log the user in on
a workstation, make some changes to the profile, log off, and migrate the
test account and the computer account. Post your results.

My mistake, Ace.
The options Add, Replace and Remove are about computer rights no profile.
The strange thing occurs:
- when the user log on the new domain the profile error appears so a
temporary profile is created. Then the user restart the machine and log on
the new domain again the profile was migrated.

It is strange, is it not?

Well, thanks for the help anyway. I will use USMT.

Best Regards.

Luiz

Hmm, I don't remember that error when I last did it.

You are welcome, just the same. I guess have the users logoff, restart, and
logon again, instead of adding an extra step for the USMT.
