  1. PC replacement scenario Windows with USMT - Editing XML files


    Hello
    For our upcoming big replacement it has been decided we use USMT as it is the only MS supported tool.

    With the USMT standard XML files a lot of things are not migrated and we also have some special programs and data we need to secure.

    I have not found any GUI or program for setting up custom XML settings.
    Please let me know if you by chance know one or have other suggestions

    Makesh

    :)

    Multi PC replacement scenario -> user data and user profile migration

    Hi Rafael

    I'd definitely go for MS USMT (User State Migration Tool) which is free, as it is part of the Windows ADK.

    We use User Profile Central (UPC) from EhlerTech to run and monitor USMT. UPC simply installs on a technicians PC and the tech can backup and restore user profiles, data, favorites, mail account settings etc., over the local network to/from a share and without interfering with the user.

    We just take a backup while the user still work and then restore it to the New PC.

    Also UPC comes with a bunch of valuable updated USMT xml files.

    In my opinion UPC is the single most time saving tool I have ever used.

  3. SCCM - USMT - Windows 7 to Windows 10

    Dear All PC replacement scenario Windows with USMT - Editing XML files :)

    I do the migration of W7 to W10. On W7, the user profiles are on the D Drive and on W10 on the %systemdrive%

    I will use the MigDoc.xml and MigApps.xml. The MigApps is coming from the Ehler custom xml.

    So... Here my questions...

    Could you please tell or correct me what steps I need to put in a TS with SCCM 1806 to have the process working with USMT ?

    And important, how to change the xml to save (capture) the data's from D drive (W7) and restore (load) to the C drive (W10) ?

    So from my Full TS, I add a TS USMT Backup a first step in WinPE and the last step a TS USMT Restore.

  4. PC replacement scenario Windows with USMT - Editing XML files

    Can't open, edit and save xml files

    Hello

    I have som xml files i want to edit, but for some reason my pc dont let choose what program i want to open the xml files with. It only show "open" and not "open with" (notepad). Then i forced it to open it with notepad by making it default for xml files.
    Then i was able to open the file and edit what i want, but when i wanted to "save" it acted as if i clicked "save as". It was like i didn't know where this file were coming from and what to do with it. When i try to find to correct place to save the file,
    i wont let me.

    I'm really annoyed by this problem because it used to be so easy to edit and save xml file. Hope you can help me
