During our KBOX 2000 JumpStart, we uploaded USMT 4.0 (the User State Migration Tools for Windows 7/Vista) to our KBOX and it's ready to go. I know a lot about how USMT (4.0 and 3.01) works in the cold, cruel world, but not much about how it operates in the KBOX environment (KBOX 2000 or even used from a script in a KBOX 1000). And I didn't find much of this technical information in the manual or anywhere on kace.com.

Can we find out more about how the KBOX uses USMT? For examples:
- where does it store the userprofiles? how are they identified?
- are the userprofiles stored compressed or not? single instance storage or not?
- are the userprofiles stored encrypted?
- where are the USMT program files stored? (e.g., MigUser.xml)
- what are the actual command lines that run USMT's ScanState.exe and LoadState.exe, and where are the command (batch) files stored? (In other words, which XXXXState.exe parameters are used?)
- what about USMT logs: what logs are captured, at what level of verbosity (/v:), and where are they stored?

I'll offer a trade here: If someone from KACE will supply these technical details (and more!), I'd be happy to share my knowledge about USMT here as well. Sande
