Automatic migration of existing application profiles

Marcel Otto1709161339


Hi @ all,


got some Problems with "automatic migration of existing application profiles".


So whats the Plan?

Migrating from Server 2016 to Server 2019. 

As mentioned in the Article https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/profile-management/current-release/configure/automatic-migration-of-existing-app-profiles.html , I use the Variable "!CTX_OSNAME!".



Also "automatic migration of existing application profiles" is enabled.



When I login to Server 2016 and Server 2019, UPM creates the following Folder:



As I understood, Settings in: 

1. HKCU\Software

2. %userprofile%\Local\Appdata\ and %userprofile%\Roaming\

should be migrated to the new profile.


When I check Settings in Adobe, Notepad++, or just create a key "HKCU\Software\Test" or create a folder "%userprofile%\Roaming\test" I recognize that nothing had been migrated.


I read that.

Profile Management first locates the previous profile folder and then migrates it to the application profile folder in the user store in the following order:














If none of them is available, Profile Management ends the migration process and returns an error.


So I checked Logs in UPM and also found that UPM did not found an old Profile to migrate:



Is there someone who can help? Is there something I forgot?

What did I do wrong?


THX & Kind regards
