SE_ACBullet01.gif

Description

The arguments passed to the USMT Loadstate process. The ZTI script inserts the appropriate logging, progress, and state store parameters. If this value is not included in the settings file, the user state restore process is skipped.

If the Loadstate process finishes successfully, the user state information is deleted. In the event of a Loadstate failure (or nonzero return code), the local state store is moved to %WINDIR%\StateStore to prevent deletion and to ensure that no user state information is lost.

Value

Description

arguments

The command-line arguments passed to LoadState.exe.

The default arguments specified by Deployment Workbench are as follows:

  • /v. Enables verbose output in the LoadState log. The default is 0. You can specify any number from 0 to 15. The value 5 enables verbose and status output.

  • /c. When specified, LoadState will continue to run even if there are nonfatal errors. Without the /c option, LoadState exits on the first error.

  • /lac. Specifies that if the account being migrated is a local (non-domain) account, and it does not exist on the destination computer, then USMT will create the account but it will be disabled.

For more information on these and other arguments, see the USMT Help files.

Location

 

SE_ACBullet01.gif

 

SE_ACBullet01.gif

Description

The geographic location of the target computers. A list of IP addresses that correspond to the default gateways defined for the computers within that location defines the Location property. An IP address for a default gateway can be associated with more than one location.

Typically, the value for the Location property is set by performing a database query on the database managed through Deployment Workbench. Deployment Workbench can assist in creating the locations, defining property settings associated with the locations, and then configuring CustomSettings.ini to perform the database query for the Location property and the property settings associated with the locations.

In the example, the LocationSettings section queries the LocationSettings view in the database for a list of locations containing the value specified in the DefaultGateway property listed in the Parameters property. The query returns all settings associated with each default gateway.

Then the scripts parse each section that corresponds to the locations returned in the query. In the example, NYC and the NYC-6311 Lexington-4th Floor sections represent the locations. This is an example of how one computer can belong to two locations. The NYC section is for all computers in a larger geographic area (an entire city), while the NYC-6311 Lexington-4th Floor section is for all computers on the fourth floor at 6311 Lexington Ave., in New York City.

Role

Name

ZTI

Role

 

SE_ACBullet01.gif

 

SE_ACBullet01.gif

Description

The purpose of a computer based on the tasks performed by the user on the target computer. The Role property lists text values that can be any nonblank value. The Role property value has a numeric suffix (for example, Role1 or Role2). When defined, a role is associated with a computer. A computer may perform more than one role.

Typically, the value for the Role property is set by performing a database query on the DWDB database. Deployment Workbench can assist in creating the roles and property settings associated with the role, and then Deployment Workbench can configure CustomSettings.ini to perform the database query for the Role property and the property settings associated with the role.

In Example-01, the ComputerRoles section queries the ComputerRoles table in the DWDB database for a list of roles for a computer that matches any of the properties listed in the Parameters property (UUID, AssetTag, SerialNumber, or MACAddress). This query populates the list of roles in the Role property. Then the RoleSettings section queries RoleSettings table to return a list of property settings associated with the corresponding role (specified in the Parameters property in the same section).

In Example-02, the roles are manually listed in the Role property in the [Default] section. Then, as in Example-01, the [RoleSettings] section queries the RoleSettings table to return a list of property settings associated with the corresponding role (specified in the Parameters property in the same section).

Value

ScanStateArgs

 

SE_ACBullet01.gif

 

SE_ACBullet01.gif

Description

Arguments passed to the USMT Scanstate process. The scripts call ScanState.exe and then insert the appropriate logging, progress, and state store parameters. If this value is not included in the settings file, the user state backup process is skipped.

Note   Use the USMTMigFiles to specify the .xml files to be used by ScanState.exe instead of using the /I parameter in the ScanStateArgs property. This prevents the ZTIUserState script from potentially duplicating the same list of .xml files

Value

Description

arguments

The command-line arguments passed to ScanState.exe.

The default arguments specified by Deployment Workbench are as follows:

  • /v. Enables verbose output in the ScanState log. The default is 0. You can specify any number from 0 to 15. The value 5 enables verbose and status output.

  • /o. Overwrites any existing data in the store. If not specified, ScanState will fail if the store already contains data. You cannot specify this option more than once at a command prompt.

  • /c. When specified, ScanState will continue to run even if there are nonfatal errors. Without the /c option, ScanState exits on the first error.

For more information on these and other arguments, see the USMT Help files.

USMTMigFiles

Name

ZTI

USMTMigFiles

 

SE_ACBullet01.gif

 

SE_ACBullet01.gif

Description

List of files in XML format that are used by USMT (ScanState.exe) to identify user state migration information to be saved. When this property is not specified, the ZTIUserState.wsf script uses MigApp.xml, MigUser.xml, and MigSys.xml. Otherwise, ZTIUserState.wsf uses the files explicitly referenced in this property. The USMTMigFiles property has a numeric suffix (for example, USMTMigFiles1 or USMTMigFiles2).

Note   Use this property to specify the .xml files to be used by ScanState.exe instead of using the /I parameter in the ScanStateArgs property. This prevents the ZTIUserState script from potentially duplicating the same list of .xml files.

Value

Description

  USMTMigFiles1=

  USMTMigFiles2=

         ...

The name of the .xml files to be used as input for ScanState.exe, on separate lines. If not specified, the default is MigApp.xml, MigUser.xml, and MigSys.xml.

Note   If you specify any value here, you also need to add the default files (MigApp.xml, MigUser.xml, and MigSys.xml) to the list if you want these files included as well.

Example

[Settings]
Priority=Default
Properties=MyCustomProperty
[Default]
OSInstall=Y
