SCCM User State Migration: Error 0x0004005 during User State Restore

leave a comment »


Scenario

  • In SCCM Build 1606, you intend a side-by-side migration with User State Migration.
  • You execute your Capture User State Task Sequence on the SOURCE machine
  • You build your TARGET Machine
  • You create a Computer Association between your SOURCE and TARGET machines in Configuration Manager Console > Asset and Compliance > User State Migration. Now you have two computer associations using the same Source Computer:
    • the one with Migration Type = In-place and Destination Computer is itself,
    • another with Migration Type = Side-by-side and Destination Computer is your intended TARGET machine (see picture below).

Example of creating a Computer Association after User State Capture. I performed a User State Capture on MININT-8AA13J1, resulting in the association with In-place Migration Type. Then I created an association between MININT-8AA13J1 and OSDTEST03.  When I performed the User State Restore on OSDTEST03, it resulted in a 0x0004005 error.

 

  • You execute your Restore User State Task Sequence on the TARGET machine and get the following error.

Task Sequence: Restore User State has failed with the error code (0x00004005). Please contact your system administrator or helpdesk operator.

Resolution

You need to create your Computer Association between the two computers before you perform the user state capture on the SOURCE machine.

Sorry guys, not too many screenshots here. However, I tried it in my lab and it works. Leave a comment if this writeup solved your problem.
