I recently migrated numerous user profiles from XP SP2 workstations in an NT
domain to new XP SP2 desktops in an SBS 2003 domain. The original
workstations were formatted FAT32. The new workstations are NTFS.

I logged on to the old workstations as the Domain Admin and copied the user
profiles on each machine to the server. I then deployed the new system,
logged on as the users to create the folder structure, then logged on as the
Domain Admin, and overwrote the new local profiles with the copies stored on
the server. When logging on as the user without local admin rights, none of
the users settings were applied. If the user was made a local admin, then
the correct settings were applied.

I checked permissions and ownership of the files in the profiles. I had to
assign ownership of the files to the user as the domain administrator was
listed as owner. The permissions were correct.

Am I missing something? I never recall having this problem in the past.

Thanks. Sorry about the HTTP vs OE issue. Posted on one computer and read
on my laptop. I did not realize there was a difference. I found the post,
but had to use the browser based version. Could not locate it in OE groups.

Mow,

I just took a look at the suggested article. It does not appear to have
resolved the posters problem as he never replied to the last post from the
MVP. I must confess that I did not use the ADMT tool, but from my reading,
that did not work for that particular poster.

It is apparently a permissions issue, or a policy setting enforced by the
SBS server. Has anyone found a work around other than giving the user local
admin rights?

Thanks

Perhaps it would be best to post your issue in the SBS NG. After all,
we're just XP plebes around these here parts. ;)
