I've been using K2000 for a few weeks now and ran into an issue with the custom USMT file. The Scan Template options without specifying a config file won't suffice for our needs, as we use the "c:\Data" folder for all our users to store their custom files in. I went through the progress of learning USMT 4 and making a custom file for it.

The process I went through step-by-step:
- Installed Windwos AIK
- Made the following file in the x86 USMT folder (where scanstate.exe is): c-data.xml. This file contains the following:

<migration urlid="http://www.microsoft.com/migration/1.0/migxmlext/c-data">
<component type="Documents" context="System">
<displayName>Data folder op C-schijf</displayName>
<role role="Data">
<pattern type="File">C:\Data\* [* ]</pattern>

(Note: the [* ] does not contain a space, but I had to put one there for the forum formatting)
I then executed the cmd line:

scanstate /i:MigApp.xml /i:MigDocs.xml /i:MigUser.xml /i:c-data.xml /genconfig:Config.xml /v:13

This gave me the Config.xml file that I needed. I first tested by uploading the USMT to the K2000 again (in hope it would also upload the c-data.xml), then uploaded the Config.xml onto the K2000 in the USMT scan templates tab. I ran a test, and it succeeded, but didn't copy the c:\Data folder like it should have.

I then tested the USMT profile locally to excluse that it was a mistake in the file rather than on the K2000, with the command:

scanstate \\dcmher04\TEMP\usmt /config:Config.xml

This gave me the same result on the K2000, meaning the scan did succeed, but it didn't copy the c:\Data folder.
Does anyone see an obvious mistake in my process? I'm quite new to USMT so it wouldn't surprise me, but it would be fantastic to get it resolved.
