    Hi All,
    I’m struggling to find an solution to migrating XP roaming profiles stored on a W2K server onto our new x64 2008 R2 server.

    All users (85 total) use Win XP and roaming profiles.
    As much as I dislike roaming profiles, there are various business reasons why I need to keep them.
    All profiles are stored in various folders on a W2k server. Profiles are kept in one folder and documents in another.

    How best to migrate these without any real change to the user.
    I need to keep their desktop icons, My Documents etc, outlook settings etc etc.

    I have created new shared folders on the new server and with test accounts, it creates a profile with the V2 extension. Seems XP cannot read these..?

    Any advice and opinions would be much apprecated.
    I’m sure I’m not the only one going through this pain…;)
