Trying to migrate from Novell to AD.
Profwiz runs fine locally but can't get it to run from mapped drive. 
Creating migration process... Fails.
The handle is invalid.
A sample of our profwiz edited
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<ForensiTUserProfileWizard xmlns="">
    <!-- ForensiT User Profile Wizard 3.5 run options -->
    <!-- Note: options set here are overridden by parameters passed on the command line -->
    <!-- Corporate Edition Settings -->
    <!-- Settings for migrating all profiles -->
    <!-- Advanced Settings -->
    <!-- VPN Settings -->
  <!-- Script Settings - do not edit -->
  <ScriptLocation>C:\ProgramData\ForensiT\User Profile Wizard 3.5\Deployment Files\Migrate.vbs</ScriptLocation>
  <!-- Licensing Information -->

There are two things to be said. Firstly, "The handle is invalid" error means that the <LocalAdmin> or <LocalPwd> is wrong - probably the password. Run the Deployment Kit again to re-enter the password. (We know the error message is useless - we will change this in the next release.)

Secondly, you cannot run Profwiz from a mapped drive. Although the drive is mapped for the currently logged on user, it will not be mapped for the <LocalAdmin> account. Use the Deployment Kit to create a single deployment file and run that from the mapped drive instead.
