We just deployed a K1000 and K2000 appliances and our PC team imaged a bunch of PCs with Windows 7. I have been given the task of setting things up for a migration of XP to Windows 7 and to move the user profiles to the new Windows 7 PCs.

I have been reading a lot of articles and watching some videos in the Kace Support pages and I am good with created the user state files and uploading to the Kace appliance, my problem is it is still unclear to me how to deply it to the PC. We don't want this to be part of the OS install as we have already done that, we just want to create the user state file and then deploy it to a selected PC.


Can someone point me in the right direction on how to do this? I've tried to create a new boot action under the deployment tab but I can't seem to figure out how to create a boot action that would just user the USMT script the is already part of Kace.

  • Thank you Ron. I had found an article in regards of deploying this by using the k1000 and writing a bath file that will map a network drive, copy the user state file and run the loadstate command. I was just hopping there was a cleaner way to do this. After all the K2000 allows you to capture a user state and store it, it would just be awesome if it also allowed you to deploy it from there as a stand alone task without having to make it part of a Windows installation.

Since you've already deployed the OS to the machines, you won't be able to use the K2000 to automate USMT capture/deploy.  You can, however, use your K1000, if you have one.  As it happens, there's a KKE coming up (http://www.kace.com/kke) on May 13th, called Advanced USMT, that will cover just this sort of thing.
