Any way to transfer user accounts/profiles and maintain passwords?
Posted 07 August 2012 - 10:34 PM
Is there anyway to copy all the profiles over to the new build with each user's password set? Getting all the users to come back to the lab and set their passwords is a huge hassle.
I've tried the Easy Transfer tool, however it sets the User Must Change Password on First Login flag. If I disable it through the admin account, the next attempt auto logs in since the password is blank.
Any help/advice is appreciated

One answer is to run a script to create temp dummy password, apply it to all users affected, and then reset the Must Change Password flag, so they have to change the dummy on login.
When we do stuff like that in the office, we always put an actual piece of paper (not email) on each users desk so that they can login with the temp password on the morning you swap out machines. Otherwise they will not be able to login and you will be explaining to the higher ups why not.

Also guessing you disabled the setting that forces them to change passwords every 45 days, so these are in essence the long time 'favorite' passwords of each user. Not a problem.
If the passwords are getting wiped when you move the profile, it's gonna be tough without you actually knowing their passwords (using Easy Transfer). Maybe you should try a different program for your profile capture, things with "Easy" in the name rarely ever are.
