Sever 2003 roaming users running XP & 7 issue
Posted on 2010-09-01
My company has about 150 users that have been running XP. Currently we are slowly migrating a few computers to Win 7 and I have noticed that where the users profiles are stored that when they login into a Win 7 machine that there is a new folder created with a (.v2) at the end for Win 7. The big issue being that there users information is not transfered because of how Win 7 has changed. The majority of our users have roaming profiles and may or may not move between a Win 7 machine or XP right now but is there a way to migrate the users XP profile to a Win 7 profile so that it would be ready with all settings, folders etc before they ever logged in? I know I can use the USMT or WET to transfer between PC's but would I need to migrate all of out users to each Win 7 PC just in case they might login there? Or is there something else that can be done?
