Terminal Server Profile Migration

Can anyone advice me on a good and reliable strategy in migrating Terminal service users profile from Win2K3 over to a Win2k8R2 box?
All users profile data is stored on a file server and mapped.
Is there a script to migrate 300+ users profile from a win2k3 platform to win2k8R2 platform, safely and reliably with all the users files, and services such as network printers, Outlook emails profiles, critical apps ,etc.

How about test and confirming that the migration was successfully transfer over,  is there any tricks or tips on how to valid post-migration?
Aside from logging in as the user and making sure everything works x 300 users.
Thank you,

Take a look at the Microsoft Support doc on the topic http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;947025 and see if it helps.
The Windows 2000\2003 Terminal Server user profiles are the old v1 user profile structure.  Windows 2008\08R2\2012 are the v2 user profile.  So your user profiles will not directly migrate from 2003 to 2008 R2.
Since you are not using roaming profiles, your migration path will change depending on how much user customization you want to transfer.  If you want to migrate the entire user profile, settings and all, then you will need convert to roaming profiles and use USMT.  If you are simply concerned with user data, then you can implement folder redirection to migrate the data off the old TS and make it available on the new RDS.
