Migrating user profiles

Hello all. I have successfully migrated users and workstations using ADMT v3. I have tried migrating in the correct order 1) Migrate users, disabled in the target domain 2) Security Translation, selecting only User Profiles 3) Migrating workstations 4) Migrating user objects again, followed enabling the user account. I get the same results in the production environment to be migrated as well as my test lab, so I am beginning to believe this no longer works for Server 2003. Using this assumption, I tried usermove.exe with no luck. I get no errors using either tool. Both processes just give me a brand new profile. I hope someopne has the answers since I have spend over 20 hours trying to get a solution. I really dont want to use USMT either.

Did you enable the option "Migrate user SIDs to target domain" while migrating the users? If this is not done user while log in will get a new profile created.

I recall seeing that option before. I do not see it for the User migration wizard. Where do you see that? Also for the Security Translation Wizard it is very confusing. The only option is "Previously migrated objects". I have to change the default setting from the target domain to the source, this seems odd.

ashutoshsapre. Cancel the above post. Yes I have been selecting the option for  "Migrate user SIDs to target domain" . Can you elaborate on the Security Translation Wizard it is very confusing? The only option is "Previously migrated objects". I have to change the default setting from the target domain to the source, this seems odd.

After finding the end of the internet 3 times, I found the resolution. Add the following to the registry of the ADMT server:

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\ADMT\DisallowFallbackToAddInProfileTranslation
(REG_DWORD) = 1
