Using Microsoft USMT to migrate Symantec Enterprise Vault Files and Settings

This will detail how to migrate Symantec Enterprise Vault version 9 files and settings using Microsoft USMT 4.This requires the use of custom settings in both the miguser.xml and migapp.xml files.

MigApp.xml Addition:

Add the following section to the MigApp.xml. This will allow USMT to migrate all information under HKCU\Software\KVS\Enterprise Vault\Client in the registry.

<!-- Symantec Enterprise Vault -->
<component context="UserAndSystem" type="System">
      <displayName _locID="MMC_MigApp.SymEV">Symantec Enterprise Vault</displayName>
      <role role="Settings">
            <rules context="UserAndSystem">
                  <include>
                        <objectSet>
                              <pattern type="Registry">HKCU\Software\KVS\Enterprise Vault\Client\* [*]</pattern>
                        </objectSet>
                  </include>
            </rules>
      </role>
</component>

MigUser.xml Addition:

Add the following section to the MigUser.xml or add the <pattern type> line to an existing “Documents” section. This will allow USMT to migrate the Enterprise Vault cache files to their proper locations on the target PC.

<component type="Documents" context="System">
      <displayName>Migrate Symantec EV System Data</displayName>
      <role role="Data">
            <rules>
                  <include>
                        <objectSet>
                              <pattern type="File">%CSIDL_LOCAL_APPDATA%\KVS\Enterprise Vault\* [*]</pattern>
                        </objectSet>
                  </include>
            </rules>
      </role>
</component>

Testing:

To date, testing in has been successful with no additional data synchronizing with the EV servers post migration.
