User State Migration


So our hospital is going through a major change in setup.  We were purchased by a much larger hospital and we are moving over to their active directory.  Unfortunately they don't use First and last name for the login.  Instead they use example: BRK7.  

We will be imaging 1700 machines here and will need to move a good portion of those over to there new profile.  Is it possible to use the user State migration to do this even though the login will be different?  

Thank for your help.

  • Hello,

    so to clarify: the user name of the user that you scan from the device is different from the user name where you'd like to apply the scanned profile..
    Have I understood well?
    Kind regards,

  • Hi Marco,

    Yeah you are correct. It will go from Brian Koldy to BRK7 - KOLDY 5 years ago

I think that is possible for sure to capture the user states using the K2000 but deploy them to a different user name is not something that I think you can achieve out of the box.

I made some searches and I found that LoadStates.exe accept a parameter to deploy the state to different user name.

The parameter is /mu:

The user states (in form of MIG files) are saved under \\K2000\peinst\user_states

The information about every profile captured can be found in the K2000 database in the table IM_USER_PROFILES

So I think that you can create a VBS script that queries the K2000 database (you can enable the K2000 database access under the Settings -> Security menu), finds the ID of the scanned state and so fid the MIG file as well in the \\K2000\peinst\user_states folder and invoke the LoadState passing to it the right file and parameters.

Seems a bit complex and I haven’t  personally tried it but i think that it can be done.
