What does DMA do when it translates security on a user profile?
Domain Migration Administrator 7.1
When DMA translates security in 'Add' mode on a user profile, it does the following steps:
- Adds the target user account SID to HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList in the registry on the machine where you are translating security.
- The value for HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\...SID...\ProfileImagePath is set to the path to the source account profile folder on that same workstation.
- Adds the target account to the NTFS ACL on the profile folder.
For more information about security translation, please refer to Appendix C "How DMA Works" and Chapter 7 "Performing Individual Migration Tasks".
