Change target computer mapping for state migrations (USMT)
Please make it possible to change the target computer when using state migration points as a means of transferring user data to one pc to another.
The scenario would allow the backup (scanstate) of the old pc data, utilizing all positive aspects of SMP (centralized, encrypted, storage based on boundaries). IT could then later set target computer, which may not be known at the time the data gets saved.
Ideally this should be possible in the admin console by “editing” the state item to map to a new computer, just after it has already been created. “Late mapping” so to say.
Handling replace scenarios with "Late Mapping" is exactly what most customers we work with want for their Hardware upgrade and OS Upgrade/Migration scenarios. Handling this in a simpler manner (especially for Unknown computers still in the OS Deployment TS) would be hugely helpful.
Great idea. Would have come in useful today!
