USMT Estimation Report

USMT Estimation Report – One of the deliverable items at a customers site was to identify the amount of data each machine would would have to backup. This is important data to capture to help plan your estimated migration times as well as identify systems that will not be able to successfully perform a backup. This data is not something that SCCM will automatically absorb, but Jason Sandy already has a solution for that. We used his script here with a few mods for our environment we were able to capture this information.

let me point out that if you look inside of the MDT Toolkit for ZTIUserState.wsf you will see that it is estimated to need 1.1 times the size of the data you are trying to catpure. This is something that was pointed out from a co-worker.

The new report allows you to look up specific computers, interactive sorting, better visuals, graphs, and more efficient SQL logic.

you will have to modify the CASE WHEN statements to fit your own environment. Please do some testing and then modify for the “USMT Only Time Estimate” column. Several factors go into consideration for determining this value. These are things such as server specs, amount of systems running the task concurrently, bandwidth, etc.
