|To create a migration table|
In the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) console tree, double-click the forest from which you want to create a migration table.
Do either of the following:
Right-click Domains and then click Open Migration Table Editor.
Right-click Group Policy objects, and then click Open Migration Table Editor.
- Right-click Domains and then click Open Migration Table Editor.
Specify a source you want to include in the migration table by doing the following:
Under Source Name, type the source name or right-click the cell and click Browse to find and then specify the object type, location, and name.
If you enter the source name manually, you must type the exact name of the User, Computer, Group, or UNC Path referenced in the source GPO (for example, TestDomain\PolicyAdmins or \\server1\publicshare). The type of the source name must match the source type specified in the migration table.
Security principals can be specified using any of the following formats:
UPN: For example, email@example.com.
SAM: For example, contoso\someone.
DNS: For example, contoso.com\someone.
Free text: For example, someone. You must specify the type as Free Text or SID.
SID: For example, S-1-11-111111111-111111111-1111111111-1112. You must specify the type as Free Text or SID.
Under Source Type, specify the type of source in the cell adjacent to the source name cell by using the drop-down list and selecting the appropriate type. If you have used Browse to find the source name, the source type is entered by default.
Under Destination Name, type the destination name or right-click the cell adjacent to the source name and source type cells, and then do one of the following:
Click Browse to find a user, computer, or group.
Point to Set Destination, and then click the appropriate selection. You cannot use the No Destination option for UNC paths.
- Under Source Name, type the source name or right-click the cell and click Browse to find and then specify the object type, location, and name.
Repeat Step 3 for each source you want to include in the migration table.
Click File, and then click Save.
Specify the location where you want to save the migration table, and then click Save.
You can use the migration table editor to check that destination entries can be resolved. If destination entries do not resolve in the migration table, then the copy or import operation might fail. To validate your migration table, from the Tools menu, click Validate.
