Terminal Server User Registry Migration


M

Mike Toone

We are currently running three TS machines, with about
60 - 80 users spread across the three boxes.

We have just set up a brand new NLB Cluster with two
brand new TS boxes, where we will be migrating the users
across too.

My question is are there any useful Registry Tools that
can migrate the user settings (especially printers),
without us having to log into each user account on the
brand new boxes and set-up the printers etc....

What user-based settings do you need to migrate over (in
particular printers)? Could you create a template user
and then set that user up, then copy their registry over
to the new users?

No,

Really what we need is to move both their Hkey users
information and also there profile settings under
Documents ans Settings.

Simplistically you would expect you could perhaps export
the hkey_users registry keys and then backup and restore
the documents and settings.

This just sounds to easy, and their must be some gotchas
somewhere.

So how come you couldn't just make a copy of each person's
profile onto the new terminal server?

Roaming Terminal Services profiles...

I use these so I can rebuild a TS or add another and not have to worry about losing User Profiles.
