ADMT 3 Local User Profile not translated

Discussion in 'Server Migration' started by Mikael Schvili, Oct 30, 2007.

  1. Hi,

    I am in the process of testing ADMT in preparation of a inter forest
    migration.

    Attempting to migrate a test user and computer I've successfully run the
    User, Computer and Security Translation Wizards (successfully in ters of no
    errors displayed or in logs). But when user logs on to the target domain XP
    creates a new empty local profile (named user.DOMAIN) instead of the existing
    one.

    Two-way forests trust with SID-filtering disabled is in place. Domain Admins
    from both domains is member of XP local Administration. ADMT is run as
    administrator in the Target domain.

    Any clues to what may cause this behaviour would be appreciated.

    BR,
    Mikael

  3. Thanks Ken. But have read both of them carefully before. Can you think of any
    advise with regards to my specific problem?

    Update: Since my last post I have verified that the original profil is
    translated. So it's pretty easy to revert to it by simply changing the name
    of the profile folder. But asking the users to logon only to create that new
    profile, then to log off to allow me to rename it... well that's one extra
    step we certainly would like to avoid as we're about to migrate 200 users in
    seven countries over a weekend.

    BR,
    Mikael

  4. Problem finaly solved by reg hack preventing ADMT from switching to Add mode
    when profile appears locked.

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