Hi Pimpfish,
I found a way to make this work. Here is my situation and the steps we take for a successful migration... We were 'cloud first' using AzureAD and are now standing up an on-premise AD server so that we can use GPOs. All of our users have been connected to O365 with their work account for some time but their workstations are all in WORKGROUP.

The key to success is rebooting the user's workstation to get a 'fresh' session. Then navigate to Windows Settings > Account > Access work or school. Select account and disconnect.

Now migrate the user - I am using migrate.exe generated from forensit tool rather than the gui. If you do it this way, you must run as Administrator.

Let me know if you want more detail. I have documented all the steps... I never found a way to fix the workstation login loop. The utility supplied by Forensit was hit-or-miss. I wound up rebuilding the user's profile manually.

We have successfully migrated about 40 users so far.

Hey jellybelly,

We are trying to migrate local profiles to Azure AD and i need some help.
I can migrate both profiles successfully but all passwords etc are not migrating the new one.

Can you please let me know of your documentation steps you took so i can find a different approach to our journey?

Thank you.

As we say in the User Guide (What isn’t migrated?): "User Profile Wizard cannot migrate encrypted data. This includes encrypted files, but also Internet and Outlook passwords which will need to be re-entered after the migration."
