Migrating Roaming User Profiles from NT4 Domain to Windows 2003 Domain

We have roaming profiles enabled on our NT4 Domain.

I am using the Active Directory Users Tool to migrate User A/C's

I am logged into the Win 2oo3 Server as Domain admin.

When using the Migration tool I am selecting to migrate user profiles.

ERR2:7207 Skipping \\cmi20\profiles$\jley, rc=5   Access is denied.

I need to make sure that the roaming profile is migrated.

I have given win 2003 Domain admins access to the user Profile Folder.

My guess is that you didn't select the checkbox to reset permissions on all the child objects (in the advanced properties). So, the admin has rights to the top-level, but not everything inside it. I also got burned once by hidden files - make sure you show all files and then re-set the perms.

Solved the issue by adding the Domain Admins group from the windows 2003 domain to the local administrators group on the server where the profiles were stored.

I ran the migration tool again and it finished with no errors.

Can you please close the case.
