We are using Landesk 8.7 (fully service packed), we are in process of testing Proflle migration in LAB environment.
We've created a collection and selected:
desktop settings, printers, mapped drives, wallpaper but exc my documents and screen resolution!
We then created an exe for "user initiated installation" and performed a profile capture on laptop A. After that finished, we logged onto laptop B and then performed a user initiated restore. To our surprise no user application data is migrated! (So no outlook settings, ost's/pst's word settings etc!) but the desktop items, wallpaper, printers were all there. (also the default printer wasn't set!)
We then created a new/different collection, then created a different exe that only included the desired applications, then ran a profile capture again on laptop A, however when we run a user initiated restore on laptop B, we are seeing folders created on the root of the c:\ and they seem to be copied from the original users laptop! the restore can take 45 mins! (i guess whilst giggs of data are copied from network restore location to new laptop).
What we also noticied is that some of the users "My Documents" was also collected in the proflie migration, even though our second collection/exe only had "Application Rules" checked and NOT "Settings"
Is this correct by design? by that, does desktop settings within a collection, only refer to items on the desktop?
How can we remove the items that are being copied from users c:\ when our collection on has "Applications" (Word, Outlook, Excel) checked?
Any help/device would be really appreciated! As we might have to go back to using Windows "File Settings and Transfer Wizard" despite investing in LANDesk!
