Using USMT Scanstate on Remote System

JakeBanzai asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-18

Is there a way to have scanstate and loadstate run from a remote machine? We are trying to migrate user profiles, but, currently the only way our script works is to copy the USMT folder to the each system then run the scanstate locally (and have it save the files remotely).

We'd like to have the USMT folder on a server and have each PC we need to migrate run the scanstate from the remote location. We've been experimenting with PSEXEC trying to remotely fire off the scanstate but no luck.

Will USMT 4.0's scanstate only work if the executable is local?

Any help appreciated.
