We've acquired another RM CC3 server and I'm now about to spread the students' accounts around. Using the RM Management Console it seems easy enough - select the user(s) and choose 'Move'. Fine, but attempts are failing because of a strange, unexpected OS problem. Some users, bless 'em, have saved copies of web pages; this creates an html file and an associated folder that contains the page data (images etc). Seems that the OS (Windows 2000/2003 servers, XP PCs) firmly links these together, so that when the account copy starts both the RM utility AND the OS try to copy the folder - the OS gets there first, the RM utility complains that the file already exists and bails out (no option there). Anyone else come across this before?
I've implemented the so-called RM fix on all the servers - changing/adding the registry entry in HKEY_.... Explorer "NoFileFolderConnection", set to 1, but this has had no effect, either run from the server or from a PC. Any ideas (apart from deleting all the student data - not on really (is it?))?
I'm just doing the same thing on our non rm network and as far as I can see all I had to do was robocopy the user files from one server to another and then change the location of their home folder etc... in active directory.
Admodify will do a bulk change of these settings as well.
