You can control a migration by editing settings in a migration configuration file.

Migrating from a Remote Profile Path

The following example file converts all remote V1 profiles that reside under the \\file01\profiles folder to V2 profiles in the same location.

The migrated V2 profiles use the same user names as the V1 profiles. A .V2 extension is appended to the users' root folders. All folders except Local Settings are migrated. User registry keys are migrated.

<migconfig version = "0.1">

  <!-- specify the source V1 profiles to be migrated -->
  <source>
    <!-- specify the location of user profiles to be migrated -->
    <profilepath>\\file01\profiles\*</profilepath>
  </source>

  <!-- specify the target destination of converted V2 profiles -->
  <target> 
    <profilepath>\\file01\profiles</profilepath>
  </target>
 
</migconfig>

Migrating from a User's Local Profile

The following example file converts a local V1 profile for the user ts115. The utility migrates the local profile on the machine devvm-winxp to a remote V2 profile under the \\file01\profiles folder.

Only files from the My Documents, Desktop, and Start Menu profile folders are migrated. The user's registry keys are migrated.

<migconfig version = "0.1">

  <!-- specify the source V1 profiles to be migrated -->
  <source>
    <!-- specify the location of user profiles to be migrated -->
    <profilepath>\\devvm-winxp\c$\documents and settings\ts115</profilepath>
  </source>

  <!-- specify the target destination of converted V2 profiles -->
  <target> 
    <profilepath>\\file01\profiles</profilepath>
  </target>
 
  <!-- specify other profile migration settings -->  
  <migration>

    <!-- migration settings for profile folders and files -->
    <profile>
      <!-- by default, all top-level profile folders are included -->
      <!-- except 'Cache', 'History', and 'Local AppData' -->  
      <includefolders>Personal, Desktop, Start Menu</includefolders> 
    </profile>
 
  </migration>

</migconfig>
