USMT vs SID change in the profile registry

    Question

  • Hi all,

    I had recently discussion regarding USMT and it was mentioned to me that profiles can be also migrated via giving ntfs rights to the old profile and changing SID in the registries - example is described here http://www.techrepublic.com/forums/discussions/new-domain-same-local-profile/  .  Is there any argument to not use this, if it's not supported is it mentiones somewhere?

    >>>You could migrate profile with original NTFS rights. And migrating users with SID history to achieve your goal.

    If you are migrate domain use ADMT, you could also migrate profile with ADMT.
