How To Migrate User Accounts

By default all users are migrated. The only way to specify which users to include and exclude is on the command line using the User options. You cannot specify users in the migration .xml files or using Config.xml.

To migrate all user accounts and user settings

  1. Log on to the source computer as an administrator, and specify:
    scanstate \\fileserver\migration\mystore /i:miguser.xml /i:migapp.xml /o
  2. Log on to the destination computer as an administrator.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • If you are migrating domain accounts, specify:
      loadstate \\fileserver\migration\mystore /i:miguser.xml /i:migapp.xml
    • If you are migrating local accounts along with domain accounts, specify:
      loadstate \\fileserver\migration\mystore /i:miguser.xml /i:migapp.xml /lac /lae
      noteNote
      You do not have to specify /lae. This option enables the account that was created with /lac. Instead, you can create a disabled local account by only specifying /lac, but then a local administrator will need to enable the account on the destination computer.

To migrate two domain accounts (User1 and User2)

  1. Log on to the source computer as an administrator, and specify:
    scanstate \\fileserver\migration\mystore /ue:*\* /ui:domain1\user1 /ui:domain2\user2 /i:miguser.xml /i:migapp.xml /o
  2. Log on to the destination computer as an administrator.
  3. Specify the following:
    loadstate \\fileserver\migration\mystore /i:miguser.xml /i:migapp.xml

To migrate two domain accounts (User1 and User2) and move User1 from the FarEast domain to the FarWest domain

  1. Log on to the source computer as an administrator, and specify:
    scanstate \\fileserver\migration\mystore /ue:*\* /ui:fareast\user1 /ui:fareast\user2 /i:miguser.xml /i:migapp.xml /o
  2. Log on to the destination computer as an administrator.
  3. Specify the following:
    loadstate \\fileserver\migration\mystore /mu:fareast\user1:farwest\user2 /i:miguser.xml /i:migapp.xml
