Requirements when scanning user states - USMT

The KSDA or K2000 have the USMT tool from Microsoft embedded right out of the box. Capturing User States most of the time is a "pretty easy" job, but it do requires some stuff to be modified in your machine so it works fine.

I will list (with some screenshots) what is needed to get User State to run.

NOTE: USMT  IS A TOOL FROM MICROSOFT, IF YOU CAN'T RUN IT DIRECTLY IN YOUR TEST MACHINE,  YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO RUN IT FROM THE K2000/KSDA EITHER .

* Be sure that you can access the K2/SDA Samba 
    * If you can't open the samba, check if SMBv1 is enable, and if it isn't, enable it and follow this other ITNinja enablesmb1
* Turn off your firewall (for both Win7 and Win10)
* Allow netlogon in your firewall
* Disable UAC, or set it to never notify
* In your Local GPOs, set to "Disabled" the User Account Control: Admin Approval Mode for the Built-in Administrator account (see image for detailed location)
* Use a Local admin account ALWAYS
* Disable any antivirus in your machine, if using Defender in Windows 10 disable the Real-Time protection every time you reboot the machine

  • PLEASE also consider using updated and Custom XML files for better migrations, as the ones delivered with USMT 10 are poorly updated:
    1. Important Windows 10 settings, Tiles setting etc. fails to migrate in win10>win10 Scenarios.
    2. Edge and Sticky notes not migrated
    3. A lot of rubbish is pulled over if you do not exclude system folders.

    A Free set of frequently updated and custom XML's are available on http://ehlertech.com/customxmls/ - ThomasEhler 3 years ago
    • This is a good piece of information for USMT

      • Except the documentation, and certainly the original USMT, isn't up to speed.
        Last time I looked (still does) this old documentation, copied over from technet, claimed that USMT only migrate Office 2003, 2007 and 2010.
        That is not correct as USMT migrates 2013 and 2016 as well. - ThomasEhler 3 years ago
