Hi All,I've been breaking my head with this and found a solution (not the one I'm proud of, but found it).Basically, if you want migrate from from any version of Windows to another version of Windows (let's say Windows XP to Windows 7), you'll probably need capture the user profile and restore it.As customer have multiple sites, we decied to use SMP (State Migration Point) and let ConfigMgr decide where is the best option to save/restore the data.To start, we installed SMP on a DP and used X:\USMTData for the SMP folder.After that, normal TS to capture user profile and we're testing, but it was stuck.Looking log files, i couldn't see any problemScanstate.log showed2012-03-15 11:06:29, Info [0x0801e7] Finalizing catalog (21326 entries).

A machine without SEP was working fine...My conclusion was: the SEP is causing the issue, but i cannot remove SEP, what can I do?!?!?!?!!?Basically, we decide to add exclusions to SEP Client on Clients1- Exclusion based on extension .MIG2- Exclusion based on extension .TMP3- Exclusion based on path c:\Windows\Tempand ConfigMgr Servers1- Exclusion based on extension .MIG2- Exclusion based on path X:\USMTDataAfter this, we restarted the machine and started the process again and this time, everything worked fine.
