ntuser.dat is a flat file, loaded into hkcu as part of the logon process. As a file, you can alter it's security simply by right clicking on it, and selecting properties. You will find it at the root of the users profile....

Hi, BeerMonster,
Thanks for your info, but i'm refering to the security permission that permitted to use the particular profile (which only can set through regedt32 after load the ntuser.dat as a hive). Since i'm going to migrate 1500 users, i don't want to manually change the permission for the profile for each user by using regedt32. Thus, i prefer to use command line tool for my migration script.
