[THIN] Re: FW: Copying profiles from old Terminal Server to new Terminal Ser ver

So, you are not using roaming profiles.  I thought you were.
That's right, if you move the profiles to the usual Documents and Settings
folder, the new system should look there by default (This can also be
changed).

If you copy to Document and settings, you should see all your usernames =
on this directory. The system will look for the profiles under there by =
design so if the folders are there and the system/user has permissions =
on it, it should work right away.

As I said, I tried that. And I can choose the new server I want to copy =
them
to. But I don't know how the new system will then know that the user's
profile is stored in the new directory i copied it to.

Or use the control panel applet to copy the profiles.

Just use NTBACKUP and backup the documents and settings folder to a
file.
Then restore on the 2003 TS (do not restore permissions as the local
accounts on the original TS have nothing to do with the new accounts)
under the same directory.
As pointed by Minero, new profiles should be better though.

1.  I've heard that it's better to start off with brand new profiles
when
moving from Win2k to Windows 2003.  It's much cleaner.
But, if you still want to copy the profiles, I would suggest using xcopy
to
copy the files from Win2k to the new server.  xcopy will allow you to
copy
file permissions as well.

2.  Unless the new system uses the old system name, yes you will have to
update the users' profile location.
I've had to do this many times and I found it's just easier to create a
system variable such as:
profsrv=3D3Dnewserver  ; where newserver is the name of you Windows 2003
server.
A reboot is required for the new variable to take effect.
This way if you move your profiles again, all you have to do is change
the
variable, no need to update users' account.

I hope this helps.
