  • You could probably use XCOPY with the following syntax and copy the profiles from one server to another with security intact.

    The syntax would be:
    xcopy "C:\Documents and Settings\" "\\New-TermServ\c$\Documents and Settings\" /c /y /r /h /s /f /o

    The /o signifies copies NTFS perms and ownership information.

    Users cannot be logged on to either server when you do this else the ntuser.dat (the user's registry hive) will be open and won't copy. You would be wise to reboot the server before you do it as well because it will ensure that the profile is unloaded completely first.

    Best Regards, Arun
