I used central administration site collection backup to back up a My Site, and then used PowerShell restore-spsite to restore it on another server. All of the content moved, but the profile information ("ask me about," "past projects," the profile photo, etc.) did not move. How do I move the profile information?

Here is the script I used:

Restore-SPSite -Identity http://sitename:81/my/username/ 
-Path c:\backup\mysite\username.bak -DatabaseServer servername 
-databasename WSS_Content -Force

Moving profile information to a new server can be accomplished by using the User Profile Replication Engine to do a full replication from the old server to the new server. The UPRE is part of the SharePoint 2010 Administration Toolkit.
