We are working on migrating a SP2007 site to a SP2010. Everything is working except the mysites.  It is like the users are disconnected from thier mysite even though the properties of the mysite show the user is the owner.   I created a new webapp and userprofile application. Default mysites work fine. I then used export-spweb and import-spweb to export and import one users mysite into the new database. The import was successfull but the user gets Access Denied when trying to access his site.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You aren't using a supported method to migrate MySites (or any site for that matter) into 2010.

Yes we tried the recomended method first. When that did not work we attempted the export and import based on a MS Article we found.
