KACE Product Support Question

What's the best way to use the USMT with a k2000 remote site?

07/02/2013 6441 views

I've been tasked with setting up the USMT templates for our Windows XP to Windows 7 migration.  We have set up an RSA for one of our remote sites, which works great, but there does not appear to be a way to scan\capture remote user states using the RSA.  If I initiate a user state scan from the K2000, it will save it to the K2000 back in our main office. It appears that the user states, once captured, can be replicated to the RSA and deployed as a post installation task from the RSA.  I'm just not sure how to go about capturing them without sending the data back to the main K2000.  I want it to capture the user states, and save directly to the RSA.

  • If you have a kace 1000 you can create scripts to do this for you. We use a 3rd party WOL and the USMT tools that come with the WAIK. We grab the MIG at night.
  • cool, thanks. We do have a K1000. I'm fairly new to the USMT, and I've been asked to scan PCs for wild card file types like *.doc etc. that exist outside of user profiles. From what I've found in my research, this is not possible using the USMT toolset. Sounds like a third party software would be needed to accomplish that task?
    • I put the USMT files on a share and run a batch file via kscripts for x86 and amd64 versions

      this is for x86:

      net use v: \\dr-main\images /user:user password
      v:\usmt\x86\scanstate v:\usmt\migstore /i:v:\usmt\x86\migapp.xml /i:v:\usmt\x86\miguser.xml /l:v:\usmt\migstore\mig.log /o /v:5 /uel:120 /ui:tmccadmn\*
      • Very similiar to this batch script is a script here:
    • Scanning for a wildcard I am not certain of, but you can tell USMT to scan in files\registry keys from alternate locations:
