I was asked about printer migrations using the MDT 2010 last week and wasn’t sure about the answer. I did some digging around and found some information that will be helpful if you’re trying to do this.
Before I point to the KB article that has the fix for the networked printers I also found this nugget of info that tells you what operating-system settings the USMT 4.0 does NOT migrate:
That being said, if you check the KB article below it tells how to fix this problem. It requires you make some modifications to the script Ztiuserstate.wsf.
From Microsoft Support article KB 977565:
“You back up the user state on a client computer by using Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010 together with User State Migration Tool (USMT) 4.0 that is included with Windows Automated Installation Kit (AIK) for Windows 7. However, items such as mapped network drives and network printers are not migrated from the source computer.
This issue occurs because the Ztiuserstate.wsf script that is in Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2010 uses an incorrect working directory by default.”
