User Profile Folders Migration

By sergeynesterenko ·
We have bouild a new Domain, I have manually populated it with users. Now I need to move folders that contain user profiles, our users use roaming profiles, from FS in old domain to a FS in the new domain. There is no trust between domains they are completely separate. I do not want to save any premissions I will set new onece later. As I understand, just by copying user folders to a FS in the new domain will not work. Is there a software that will help me to accomplish this?

download the files to a fat 32 partition on an ex-HDD or something then upload them to the new server on an NTFS partition

And when you have them copied

over you can run this to set permissions.

You could run XCACLs and give the Administrator and Users Full control of their %username% Folder.

This is how I change Permissions. Set it up something like this and run userperm.bat

The Administrator and the User has full control over the Folder with 2 files.


echo y| xcacls \Users\%1 /T /G "Administrators":F %1:F

call c:\chperm.bat user1
call c:\chperm.bat user2
call c:\chperm.bat user3

I normally copy these files to the root of the Server.Just add the Users to UserPerm.bat as per example.

Some links that will explain Permissions and a couple of ways to Automate the Process.
