Windows users doesn't work after migrating from old to new server!

We have done a complete re-install on our XServe with OD. We have about 10 Windows users, and after the installation all their settings and mail are gone. All the "normal" files are there though.
I'm not sure we have done it the right way though: We did a backup from the old server (a bootable copy with Super Duper), then we formatted and installed everything. We made new accounts (with different names if that's good to know) and copied the users home folders to the new location. The Mac clients seem to work good, but all the settings on the Windows clients are gone...
Is there an easier way to this? We still have the workable copy from the old installation. There seems to be some kind of export/import way to do this, but I haven't got a clue how to do that...
Please help!

We didn't reintegrate smb.conf, but set the new server up just like the old one. We did however compare these files to see that the vital parts (netlogon, shares and so on, and of course basic settings) were correct.
We also copied the user files and profiles and made them identical on the new server, except for placing them under the new usernames.
Regarding the Local Settings folder, it doesn't exist on the old server, that's one of the weird things. We've checked the profile for a user on the client machine, and it is a roaming profile. That's why we're a bit puzzled as to why the login works and all files are there, but the user preferences and Outlook doesn't work.
I know I've read somewhere that the Local Settings aren't replicated like the other files in a roaming profile, but I haven't finished checking up on that. I wouldn't expect anything else than that Windows takes care of Outlook e-mail for a roaming profile as well though; I mean, the user must be able to read his/her mail from any computer in the domain, what else would the purpose of a roaming profile be?
Except for the weird thing about us not being able to find the user preferences or Outlook files for the client amongst the files on the server, I feel we're missing something; Apparently Windows isn't as straight forward as one would expect (not sure why I did expect anything, come to think of it).
We're going to give it a new go next weekend. Except for doing further research we're thinking of copying /etc/smb.conf and the files in /var/samba and /var/db/samba to the new server, along with exporting and importing the old user accounts to the new server, and then see if everything works as expected.
If so, we'll see if we can change the account names in a nice way, it's really desired to do so.
If not, we really need to do some more research, but if I'm not mistaking, the Samba-related files I just mentioned are the ones that pretty much make up the Windows Services in OS X, isn't that so?

  • Mail in Mavericks is not working after migrating from MBA to new MBP

    I've just bought a shiny new 15" MBP and migrated the installation from my MBA. After tweaking a few settings, pretty much everything seems to be working fine, except Not only won't it install any Gmail accounts, it won't even add my iCloud mail. The accounts exist in System Preferences / Internet Accounts and sync with my other devices & computers, but won't show in Mail on the MBP, along with a couple of POP accounts. When I sign the MBP out of iCloud, I can add the miscellaneous accounts, but no Gmail or iCloud. Does anyone have any advice? I have installed Airmail to get me by, but I'd like to be using Mail on all my devices, just for consistency.

  • Windows media player stop working after upgraded from firefox 6.02 to Firefox 7.01 yesterday.

    windows media player stop working after upgraded from Firefox 6.02 to Firefox 7.01 yesterday.
    the plugin for win media player is already installed and working fine in FF 6.02 before upgrade. i have Google this issue without any result so far. so i reinstalled the old version 6.02, until fix is found.
    anyone has the similar issue with Firefox 7.01 in Win 7 32 bit ?

    The issue was not with FF 7.01. VLC player version 1.11.1 is conflicting with windows media player when FF 7.01 tries to play media files! Which was not happening before in FF 6.02.
    VLC and plugin media player need to be uninstalled first, then uninstalled FF 6.02. Install FF 7.01 and then win plugin media player again.

    thanks for your help. You may right that Adobe Photoshop is not a tidy programm. But it is the only of my applications that make problems after using the MA. Anf for what the MA ist made for?
    But i still have a question. Is this cc-cleaner as well working for Photoshop Elements 8.0? I tried the link but at the second step "Uninstall Creative Cloud or Creative Suite applications" I do not find at the Application folder the Utitily folder.

    How did you migrate? Unless you cloned over a complete system you just made a bunch more trouble for yourself. You can never, never migrate PSE with the migration assistant. PSE is not a tidy package app in accordance with the apple developer guidelines. It strews stuff all over your hard drive and puts things in places the MA isn't programmed to look. Now you will have a lot of manual cleaning up to do. You must always reinstall PSE from scratch.
    First download and run this: -problems.html
    Then you can manually remove the bits that got copied over. You can't use spotlight to help with this; it's programmed to ignore these kinds of files. In addition to what's in the applications folder, you will need to go to the library at the top level of your hard drive>Application Support>Adobe and remove anything in there, as well as your username>library>preferences. Then you can reinstall from your original media.

  • Hotkey (Ctrl+B) is not working after migration from Forms 6i to 10g

    Dear Gurus,
    Need your help regarding the following problem:
    After migrating from Forms 6i to 10g (Rel 2), Ctrl+B (used to list the blocks in a form) hotkey is not working anymore (all other hotkeys are working fine). I've checked my FMRWEB.RES and it contains an entry for Ctrl+B:
    66 : 2 : "Ctrl+B" : 70 : "Block Menu"
    Additional Information:
    OS: AIX
    fmrweb_utf8.res also contains the same text for Ctrl+B as above.
    I tried to reproduce it on my Windows Machine (with NLS_LANG set to AMERICAN_AMERICA.WE8ISO8859P1) and its not working as well. I don't have right to put move files on AIX server but i can try anything (on my local system) suggested by the Oracle gurus.
    Best Regards,

    Dear Gerd,
    "are you sure, that it is the hotkey"
    Yes, i am dead sure. Since:
    (1) It was working fine in forms 6i

  • Migration from old to new MacBook Pro

    Old machine uses Leopard. New machine uses Snow Leopard. If I use migration assistant from old to new, will new machine end up with Leopard instead of retaining Snow Leopard?

    Hi guys, sorry to bug in. I searched on the different discussions available and found yours to be closest to my query.
    I hope you don't me popping a few questions regarding Migration Assistant.
    I have had a MacBook Air for about 2 years now, and recently bought a MacBook Pro.
    I performed a Migration of the content in MBA to MBP and it was successful as far as content transfer is concerned.
    Now I have the database from the MBA in the new MBP, but none of the user setting or Applications were "installed". I tried to open "Applications", "Movies" folders, but I was not allowed to open them.
    Is it possible to migrate the content and use as if it was in MBA? Or do I have to download and reinstall the various programs/applications I had in MBA again? (eg Handbrake, VM Fusion, etc)?
    Much appreciated for your time & feedback.

  • ActiveSync stops working after migrating from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2013

    We have started the migration from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2013. We've followed best practices and everything is working great except ActiveSync. I've performed Exchange migrations in the past so this is nothing new for me. I've also been referring to
    a great guide which has been a big help,
    Once a user is migrated from Exchange 2007 to 2013, ActiveSync stops working properly. Email can be pulled to the device (Nokia Lumia 625 running Windows Phone 8) by performing a manual sync. But DirectPush is not working. The strange part is it's not affecting
    everyone who's been migrated. Anyone who is still on Exchange 2007 is not affected.
    At first I thought it was our wildcard certificate. 99% of our users are running Outlook 2013 on Windows 7 or higher but we do have a few terminal servers still running Outlook 2010. Outlook 2010 was giving us certificate errors. I realized it was the wildcard
    certificate. Rather than making changes to the OutlookProvider I simply obtained a new SAN certificate. Although that resolved the issues for Outlook 2010 users, ActiveSync was still a problem.
    Rebooting the phones and removing the email account from the user's device and re-adding it didn't resolve the issue either.
    Then I performed an iisreset on the CAS server. This didn't help either. I didn't know it at the time, but I was getting closer...
    I tried using the cmdlet Test-ActiveSyncConnectivity but it gave me the following error:
    WARNING: Test user 'extest_0d9a45b025374' isn't accessible, so this cmdlet won't be able to test Client Access server
    Could not find or sign in with user\extest_0d9a45b025374. If this task is being run without
    credentials, sign in as a Domain Administrator, and then run Scripts\new-TestCasConnectivityUser.ps1 to verify that
    the user exists on Mailbox server EX02.DOMAIN.COM
    I started reviewing how Exchange 2013 proxied information from the CAS to the mailbox server and realized the issue may in fact be on the mailbox server.
    I performed an iisreset on the mailbox server and all of a sudden ActiveSync started working again. Awesome!
    I can't explain why. The only thing I can assume is when some users were migrated from 2007 to 2013 something wasn't being triggered on the Exchange 2013 side. Resetting IIS resolved the issue. I guess I'll have to do an IIS reset after I perform a batch
    of migrations. Disabling ActiveSync and re-enabling it for the affected users didn't help - only the IISRESET resolved the issue.
    If anyone has any information as to why this happens, please chime in. Also, if anyone knows why I can't run the Test-ActiveSyncConnectivity cmdlet, I'd appreciate the help.

    In Exchange 2013, the Public Folder is changed to Public Folder mailbox instead of Public Folder in Exchange 2007 database.
    Due to the changes in how public folders are stored, legacy Exchange mailboxes are unable to access the public folder hierarchy on Exchange 2013 servers. However, user mailboxes on Exchange 2013 servers or Exchange Online can connect to legacy
    public folders. Exchange 2013 public folders and legacy public folders can’t exist in your Exchange organization simultaneously. This effectively means that
    there’s no coexistence between versions.
    For this reason, it’s recommended that prior to migrating your public folders, you should
    first migrate your all legacy mailboxes to Exchange 2013. For more information about migrating public folder from previous versions, please refer to:

  • USB Mouse / Keyboard doesn't work after resuming from hibernate

    I am using a USB device that splits out to 2 PS2 ports, one for a mouse, one for a keyboard. It works great, but when I put my X61 into hibernate, the mouse and keyboard do not work when I resume from hibernate.
    I installed all the relevant patches and power manager drivers from the driver downloads page, but my mouse still doesn't work.
    Can someone point me to the correct download or shed some light on this?
    Thank you!

    I have this same problem with this same device. It is a "composite USB device".
    What I've notice is that the problem happens mostly with USB 1.1 ports. When the device is connected to a USB 2.0 port the problem doesn't happen always.
    It depends on the computer though. I added a PCMCIA USB 2.0 adaptor to my laptop that has USB 1.1 only. And when I connect the USB-to-PS/2 cable to the USB 2.0 my mouse sometimes work after suspend/hibernate but sometimes doesn't.
    However, on my other desktop computer, which has integrated USB 2.0 ports, this problem has never happened (I haven't tested it exhaustively though).
    This is a Windows bug of course. Everything related to USB 1.1 support is buggy in Windows. One more example is the annoying (and possibly catastrophic) "Delayed write error" that appears when you use a external hard drive plugged to a USB 1.1 port.
    I guess M$ is focusing their efforts on making USB 2.0 to work well and they have forgotten about USB 1.1. Or it could a problem related to "USB composite devices", hard to know.

  • PPR does not work after migrating from ADF to

    Hi, I'm able to programmatically refresh my UI components in ADF After migrating my application to ADF using the latest Jdev, I noticed that all the programmatically PPR no longer work. I'm using ADF Faces, managed beans and EJB. Data Control is not used.
    In addition, I noticed in Section 7:Rerendering Partial Page Content of the latest Web User Interface Developer's Guide(B31973-03), a new paragraph was added, stating that the clientComponent attribute of the target component should be set to "true" to enable PPR programmatically. An earlier version of the developer guide(B31973-01) does not have this paragraph.
    Given the huge amount of work required in going back to update the code, is there a way for me to set ADF 11gR1 to restore to the earlier behaviour in by setting some parameter somwhere (e.g. in the web.xml)?

    No there is no such switch. If you don't want to go through your code (which should be possible by find in files with a regular expression), you have to switch back to
    This would not be an option to me because of the buds fixed in
    Think aoubt the next version which is scheduled later this year. There you will have the same problem. If you are not fixing the code you have to stay on forever.

  • For windows users,  best way to transfer photos from old iphone to new iphone

    I have a friend who just purchased new iphone and she'd like to transfer photos from old iphone to new iphone.
    What is the best steps for her to take?
    She has a Windows machine.
    thanks in advance!!!

    Make sure iTunes is loaded on the PC
    If all she wants are photos, she has to have the photos on her PC, not just on the old phone.  The old iPhone backup doesn't save the actual photos, just the setting pointing to where the photos came from.
    If the photos are on her PC, your should be able to sync them to the new iPhone with the Photos tab in iTunes (after the new phone is plugged in).
    If the photos aren't on her computer, she can copy them from whatever computer has them (assuming she has access to it).
