  • Hi Bala,

    Looks like the user profile was not migrated successfully.

    We can manually associate the original profile with the domain user. You can refer to the steps below to regain the access to a missing profile.

    In generally, the steps would be:

    1. Use domain user to log on Windows. Write down its current profile path. Log out then. 2. Log in as the local system administrator. 3. Run Registry Editor. Locate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

    4. Find the profile path for that domain user and change it to associate it with the original profile. 5. Log out and log in with the domain user.

    Besides, you could go through the following article to get more information about the profile migration using ADMT:
