Hello all,

Does anyone know how I can export about 15 or so user profiles from a Windows 2003 Terminal Server to another one? Both servers will not be running at the same time, I will be using the same hardware. If nobody knows of a Microsoft solution, then maybe a third party product?

Thanks in advance!

You might have to log the new users onto the new server once before doing this, but you can just copy "C:\Documents and Settings\" folder from the old Terminal Server to the new one.

If you are looking to keep the data synchronized then I would suggest using windows 2003 file replication services.

You could use the backup and restore process, and as mcsween suggested, have the users logon first to the new TS before restoring their profiles.

Good Luck,
