1. ## USMT for swapping machines

Howdy, I hope this section of the forum gets enough visibility. My understanding is, that the normal flow if I want to run USMT backup through a task sequence and to restore to a different computer, I would need to pre-emptively define the source and destination. My searches have all returned very limited results and I am hoping there are more options. I'd like to be able to run a backup task sequence, either available or required, grab a random PC, and run a restore task sequence to install the data. I'm not pretending the software would know what the destination would be without telling it, but I'd like to be able to direct it without knowing the destination prior to the backup. The other scenario is harvesting data after failed remote wipe-reloads upgrading from 7 to 10. Without a doubt there will be hardware failures, and saving face may involve simply doing a hardware swap. So far I played with the OSDStateStorePath variable, hoping I could just steal the known path. It didn't appear to work at all, I suspect because it knew where it was supposed to go any my intended destination wasn't that. Am I playing the impossible game?
2. ## usmt USMT migration of W7 Sticky Notes to W10

Hi all, I really hope someone can help as I've spent an unbelievable amount of time trying to get this working with no success. I'm using USMT from the 1607 ADK and I'm trying to relocate a legacy Sticky Note file (.snt) from a windows 7 machine to the new Sticky Note modern app location on a Windows 10 machine. W7 location = %AppData%\Roaming\Sticky Notes\StickyNotes.snt W10 (1607) location = %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftStickyNotes_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState My USMT script is currently able to sucessfully collect up the snt file from a W7 machine and return it to the exact same place on a W10 machine but a manual step is then required to move this file to the new loaction. A legacy snt file can be migrated to W10 by creating a new folder called "Legacy" and putting the "StickyNotes.snt" file in there and renaming it to "ThresholdNotes.snt". So I require the USMT restore to create the "Legacy" folder, put the "StickyNotes.snt" file in it, then rename it to "ThresholdNotes.snt so that the new path looks like: %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftStickyNotes_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\Legacy\ThresholdNotes.snt This is explianed here: http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/recover-backup-sticky-notes-data-file-windows-10/ I have found the following info online where someone has apparently got USMT sucessfully migrating snt files to the correct location but I can't get it working: https://www.mail-archive.com/mdtosd@lists.myitforum.com/msg03057.html Has anyone successfully managed to migrate StickyNote files over in this way with USMT? Thanks, Westy
3. ## SCCM + MDT Refresh from 8.1 to 10

Hello Windows Noob family! I am attempting to a very basic, nothing crazy refresh from windows 8.1 to windows 10 using SCCM with MDT. I am doing a user driven installation with the latest ADK installation. I create a standard User Driven task sequence. Under the capture user state step I have Capture all user profiles by using standard options selected, with verbose logging and Copy by using file system access - checked continue if some files cannot be captured and capture locally using hard links. Then under Restore User state I am using Restore all captured user profiles with standard options. When kicking off the task sequence from within the OS, I have no trouble managing the wizard... which reboots me into WinPE and begins the image. I watch it run the USMT package which "Processes the User State". When the image is done, the user profiles are not restored, altho - all the data is still there under C:\StateStore. I can browse through that folder and see all the user profiles that were backed up, and all the content is there. It just appears to be skipping, or failing? On the Loadstate portion... I cannot find any scanstate / loadstate logs - and the SMTS.log files don't appear to display any errors. Any thoughts from the gurus here? Thank you!
4. ## USMT with hardlinks and third party encryption?

Hi, We're looking at a wipe and reload on all of our machines because we're changing our encryption from Checkpoint to BitLocker as we move from Windows 7 to Windows 10. However, I'm wondering if it's possible to use hardlinks for USMT since we do have the Checkpoint filter driver as part of our boot wim. I can't find much about this topic on Google or anywhere else. Our environment is SCCM 1710 and we're moving to Win 10 1703 currently. Checkpoint is 80.64 FDE. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
5. ## USMT not migrating printer queue, Wallpaper and Outlook signature

Hi, Im buildiong my refresh task sequence to migrate from WIn7 to Win10, my Online USMT transfers the data, however the printer queue, Wallpaper and Outlook signature dont get transferred, i`m using the default USMT settings. am I missing something? SCCM 1706 + ADK1703
6. ## USMT (in SCCM) - How to use command line switches???

I've found browsing https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/usmt/usmt-scanstate-syntax That there is a TS variable you can utilize to run command line options OSDMigrateAdditionalCaptureOptions However, I cannot figure out how to utilize the following command to modify my Capture User State Task Sequence The scanstate switch below is what I want to add into my TS so that it captures the installed application registry settings. The goal is to prevent having to manually configure some of the software for each user. /apps scans the image for apps and includes them and their associated registry settings Any help would be great
7. ## USMT not restoring profiles from the last 14 days

Hi, I created a USMT Restore task sequence and set to to restore the profiles that connected in the last 14 days. However when it runs it restores all the profiles, here is a Screenshot. Any idea ?
8. ## USMT Restore User State, Error: 0x4005(16389)

I am experiencing a weird issue. I did a USMT capture of two different machines. Both are in-place (upgrading W7 to W10). One of the systems I was able to do a restore user state, but the other is giving me the following error Error: 0x4005(16389) I've attached the smsts.log Any help would be great
9. ## USMT hardlink migration to Windows 10

We are migrating from Windows 7 to Windows 10 using USMT with hardlinks. All is well with the migration all documents and files are copied with the exception of IE favorites. Is this because EDGE is the default browser in Windows 10? If so is there a resolution to this issue. Thanks.

11. ## USMT Capture State Fails : "The operating system reported error 2147942436: Too many files opened for sharing."

I am trying to implement USMT into my task sequence, and it's failing on the capture state stage. My server is running the most recent version of SCCM as well as ADK 10.1.10586.0 It will connect to the state migration point, it creates the 74795756929954750638DAED58C11F01F72E71B19054B42163676F06DB0B31A0 share and then pops up the following error message: The task sequence execution engine failed executing the action (Capture User Files) in the group (Capture Files and Settings) with the error code 2147942436 Action output: ...

12. ## USMT: migrate complete profile

Dear all, Since my users also create their own folders and files under their profile f.e. C:\Users\User01\Myfolder, I want the USMT to copy those folders/files as well (I don't know the names of the folders/files). At this moment USMT only copies everything under Desktop, Documents, Downloads,... but not the folders/files at the same folder level. How can I do this? At the same time, I want to exclude f.e. AppData, Saved Games etc. Is this possible? PS. I migrate from Windows 7 to Windows 10.
13. ## [refresh] Unable to restore user files with same computername

Hi, I'm trying to make a refresh task sequence with Windows 10. It's working fine when you make a refresh from Computer1 to the same but renamed Conputer2. Unfortunately if i make a refresh keeping the same computername nothing is restored. Thanks for your help
14. ## SCCM and USMT

Hello, In prep for a Windows 7 to Windows 10 migration during the upcoming summer I'm attempting to get the USMT up and running. We're running SCCM 2012 R2. I've followed a good bit of the guides available up until this point and I believe my TS is semi-correct. Basically, for my TS I made a new TS through the Wizard and chose to implement the steps suggested through the Wizard for Migration. I then just customized the rest of it. There was some mention of an XML file needing to be created, but from what I took away I didn't need to do this in R2 or if I simply just wanted all profiles. Seen here: Anyway, I ran the TS with that sequence on my test machine that I had some test files on, etc. From what I was able to tell the capture state had worked okay, but going back through the logs I guess I had been wrong. So here are the logs from the test machine-- Scan State Log: Load State Log: Anyway, I guess where I'm at is that I'm just confused as to what is causing my issue. I've looked into Errors 27 and 28 and there's not much more to it that isn't explained in the logs there. Is there something more I need to fix in the TS so that it can reference a script file (probably that darned XML)?
15. ## Capture Windows Setting in Winpe Refresh Scenario

Hi All I am stuck where i am unable to migrate the Computer name in a bit locked environment .Here is the details . I am following this post http://blogs.technet.com/b/jimriekse/archive/2013/09/23/usmt-5-in-the-configuration-manager-2012-task-sequence.aspx and is unable to migrate the computer name ,OU etc the three options of capture windows settings .My data is getting recovered but the association of the name in AD and SCCM changes and the new name MININT-PPXXXX is named for the refresh PC. I am not starting the tasksequence from software center instead I am suspending the bitlocker manually and then doing a F12 PXE boot and selecting my refresh offline TS.Now i am getting the data but windows settings like name and other three options are not getting migrated. I know network setting cannot be migrated but i have read on technet that windows settings can be captured in winpe Any help would be appreciated .Thanks
16. ## USMT 5

OK, I'm having issues finding information on the User State Migration Tool. Using the tool is simple enough, but I'm looking for a way to import a user account to a DIFFERENT user account. Let's say I have a user account "Owner" and I would like to import the data and settings from "Owner" to the user account "Bob" on a different computer. Is there a way to do this using USMT?

19. ## USMT 5.0 Block Themes, Wallpapers and other Display Customizations (DPI, Window Color and Appearance etc.)

We're fine with backing up themes, wallpapers and other display customizations (DPI, window color & appearance etc.) because it gives us something to go back to or restore if its truly need. However, we do not want to restore the aforementioned on the destination PC by default. I must be doing something wrong and I can't figure out what and need some help. I've read some great write ups on the subject: USMT Custom XML the Free and Easy Way USMT 4.0 Custom Sample - Blocking Wallpaper and Theme Migration from Windows Vista and Windows 7 Blocking Wallpaper Migration with USMT (or: you are a jerk) and used part of their example XML in my own, but everything (wallpaper, themes and other display customizations) is still coming over. Now I'm trying to use MigXmlHelper.DestinationPriority() but really its just a last ditch effort. From an elevated command prompt in C:\USMT\amd64\, I'm executing: scanstate.exe E:\USMTBackup /config:nothemeuiconfig.xml /i:MigApp.xml /i:MigDocs.xml /i:MigUser.xml /i:unconditionalexclusions.xml

to generate the config.xml the command I used for scanstate the log files generated by scanstate the command I used for loadstate the log files generated by loadstate Summary result of the MS case: After much review & scrutiny, the command line and XML files are syntactically correct and rules are sound. The articles I referenced in the ticket are indeed old and speak of an older version of USMT, so I can accept the possibility that something may have changed between USMT versions that render those suggested rules & instructions invalid. Despite using unconditionalExclude to unconditionally globally exclude objects, something else is trumping that rule, and there’s no way around that. Even using MigXmlHelper.DestinationPrioity() won’t help us here because, like above, something else trumps that rule, and there’s no way around that. The last proposed suggestion is to disable the shmig component, which may or may not break or otherwise adversely affect the backup/restore of other things. (This may be too difficult to detect easily or in initial testing and the uncertainty doesn’t give us confidence problems won’t arise as a result of this change. Also, Ned Pyle's post says NOT to, but then again that's an old post.) Is this no longer possible or am I'm just doing it wrong?
20. ## Moving Entire Drive to a different drive - Old drive not present

Cannot solve this. Windows 7 32bit Currently we have one drive in our computers partitioned in to 2. (C: & D:) New setup One drive one partition. (C: only) Right now users store there data on the D: like documents and PST's. And some machines have the pagefile.sys Right now its easy I tell it to migrate the whole drive and I exclude some folders with an unconditional exlude. Works great. Even doesnt get the pagefile.sys on the D: If I run the loadstate on the machine now with just the one drive it dumps everything that was on the D: to the C:. Very messy plus the PSTs are now not connected. So I tried a realitive move comand to try and get it under the users profile in my custom.xml when I run scanstate. Now if the pagefile is on the D: and I add the relative move of the D: it fails saying it cant copy the Pagefile.sys. However I dont want it to and have specifically exclueded it. Any ideas to move the D: to a folder on the C: (doesnt really matter where) and make it work like it was when the D: was there?
21. ## USMT - Hardware Refresh without using a store

We have been using USMT for many years kicking off a command line script on each the old and new computer. (Scantate & loadstate). In most cases we use MDT just for the build on a hardware refresh. This allows us to prebuild 100's of laptops and have them on hand when someone has time to swap out. My question is could I use USMT to backup the old computer and then restore it to the new one directly? Basically a "computer to computer" data and settings swap. I thought years ago I read that this could be done. But all of the searches I have done recently come up with nothing. This method would cut down on server space that is needed and cut down on time of backing up then restoring separately. If anyone has information on please let me know. Thanks, Darren
22. ## USMT (6?) SCCM 2012 R2

Hey all, Is there a super detailed tutorial for USMT someone can point me to? I'm getting ready to experiment with this for the first time using SCCM 2012 R2. Previously I have used the hardlinking method to do in place upgrades from win xp to 7 using a USB and some scripting, but have no clue how to utilize sccm in this regard. My goals are to be able to do in place OS refresh - same hardware, OS refresh from win 7 to win 7 without having to migrate files, settings and install programs again manually - I think I was able to do that previously. It's been a while though. I could be wrong about not having to re-install software. Secondly, a migration from old hardware to new hardware, same OS (win7 to win7) with the same caveats in mind - saving files, settings and applications. Lastly, an in place upgrade - same hardware upgrading from win 7 to win 8.1 with the files, settings and applications not having to be done manually. Like I said I have no idea what the prerequisites are and no clue about the process. I run sccm 2012 R2, I have WADK for 8.1 installed (don't know if that's important), in my sccm console I'm showing USMT tool for win 8.1 version 6.3.9600.16384, config manager client upgrade version 5.0, nothing built under User state Migration and no packages or task sequences related to this process. Super noob in this area. I would really appreciate any direction, thanks!
23. ## Capture, Image, Restore (failed) - now what?

Hi, I have a scenario that I need to figure out a solution to, in the event that it happens in the real world. I have created a few task sequences in SCCM for zero/lite touch imaging using the built in "Capture User State" and "Restore User State" actions. The TS performs the typical set of actions, capture, image, and restore (along with other custom commands). The TS works great in the lab and in a controlled production environment; however, I foresee an issue that I do not know how to resolve. What happens when a technician runs the TS on some workstations and one workstation fails half way through the imaging piece or fails during the restore state? How do I get the user's files back from the successful scanstate? I know how to locate the .MIG files; however, they are encrypted per SCCM's default scanstate/loadstate command line options. Any thoughts? -Aaron
24. ## Migrating Domain with SCCM 2012

Hello, Looking for a bit of advice for anyone able to help. Implementing SCCM 2012 into a new organisation at the same time as a global refresh to a new domain. I need to capture user profiles from the old domain using USMT and restore to the new one. Is this possible? Thanks
25. ## USMT 4.0/Hard-links: Computers do not join domain

Hello! I'm trying to create a Windows 7 to Windows 7 computer refresh task sequence with USMT 4.0/Hard-links in SCCM 2012 SP1 CU1 environment. I followed Peter's tutorial http://www.petervanderwoude.nl/post/migrating-to-windows-8-by-using-hard-links-with-configmgr-2012/. The task sequence I created based off of Peter's tutorial completes with no errors but the computer does not get joined to the domain. I'm using a service account that serves as a "domain join only" account specified in the Apply Network Settings step. I use this same account in several other of my OSD task sequences and the computers join the domain fine. Is there a better way to do a computer refresh with same OS? I've only seen XP to 7 refresh scenarios around the web and I'm assuming it shouldn't matter with Windows 7 to Windows 7. If needed, I can attach any logs that would be helpful. Thanks!
