Hi, I'm tring to find a simple way to migrate user profiles form old computers to the new ones without going to the old computers. OS is XP sp3, Server 2003 AD domain.
I currently go to the users PC and run the file settings transfer wizard, then come back to my office, load the new PC, reset the users password, log in as them, and run the wizard to pull their data over. It's a pain for several obvious reasons. Does anyone know of any other way to do this?
I've tried the USMT, but still, it has to be run on the users machine locally. There has to be a way to do it form the server no? I tried crude methods like robocopy, to just copy the whole profile folder, but the files are locked and won't copy and the profile has to be created on the new computer first anyway, so I still have to reset their password and log on as them.
