I am replacing my current Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server with a new Windows 2003 Terminal server and i would like to copy all the profiles from the old server to the new server and i am not using roaming profiles. I did a robocopy of all the user folders in Documents and Settings from the old server to the new server to preserve the security settings, I read in other posts here that this was the proper way to transfer profile between terminal servers, and every time I log on to the new server it still creates new profiles. It completely by passes the profiles i copied over. I even tried creating profiles "username" and "username.domain" it will just create new profile called "username.domain000".

I realized what the problem was. You need to copy over the registry keys below from the old server in order to get the profiles to work:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileGuid
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
