I´m starting an AD users and computers migration and sometimes users tell me that can´t see icons, files, favorities in IE, etc in their desktop.
The problem is that the Quest migration tool sometimes fails making a new user profile and not using the existing one. To solve the problem you need to change a registry key in the conmputer of the afected user.
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList and check the user failing profile SID. Open the key ProfileImagePath and erase .profile. Close and reboot the computer.
With this easy change the user will see again his old profile.

I´m going to migrate a CA from windows 2003 (x86) to 2008 R2 and to know if the CA is Standalone or Enterprise I need to do one of the following:
- typing the command: certutil -getreg ca\catype
- Open CertSrv.msc console and locate Certificate Templates node. This node exist on Enterprise CAs only.
- In Site and Services, Select Show Service node in the view pane. Go to Services, Public Key Services, Enrollment Services. If you view there the CA name like an object your CA is an Enterprise CA, if not is a StandAlone.
