Workaround posted for ConfigMgr SP2 issue with USMT 4.0


Levi Stevens posted a blog entry today describing a workaround for an issue with ConfigMgr SP2 and USMT 4.0 that causes USMT to not capture all of the user state information.  See http://blogs.technet.com/configmgrteam/archive/2009/12/01/known-issue-migrating-from-windows-xp-to-windows-7-with-usmt-when-used-with-configmgr-2007-sp2-os-deployment-may-not-migrate-all-settings.aspx for all the details.

We are still working on a KB article for MDT 2010 that provides a similar fix.  That KB article (which will be 977565 once it is finally available) will describe the changes necessary to ZTIUserState.wsf.  (They are pretty minor, just adding two lines to set the working directory to the folder containing the USMT binaries before running scanstate.exe or loadstate.exe.)

    Will there be an update coming out to MDT 2010 that contains this fix? We prefer not to make modifications to the native scripts MDT scripts because we maintaining them when updates come out gets to be an extra step that is sometimes overlooked.

  2. We are still discussing whether to release an update for MDT 2010, and if we did, when it would be good to do that – still too early to tell right now.
