    ADMT

    Locked

    Hi all,

    Well this morning I started to migrate users from one NT domain into a new 2000 domain (Native Mode)using the ADMT version from the 2003 CD.

    I have created the trust relationships between domains, and followed step-by-step the Migration Cookbook on MS KB. To make a long story short, I created an OU called Acct (for the accounting source domain) and during the migration I have migrated Global groups and then set of users from the source domain (I thought I did!). However, when I gointo Active Directory users and computers and click on that OU no global groups of set of users show up!

    What am I doing wrong? I have been here since 7:00 AM, I have looked for answers in newsgroups, MS KB and I cannot seem to find what could be causing this problem, and because of this I am very sure is something that I have missed somehow.

    These are some of the errors that I found in the the log files:

    BTW, If I use the Active Directory Administration Tool. I find no reference to the OU I just created, but I can see that OU in the AD interface.
    Thanks

      By the way, I am a newbie at this, maybe that explains it!

      I haven’t used ADMT in several months (and then I only did on test machines), but I thought it could only migrate users into the Users container. I thought you then had to Move your users into the specific OU container you wanted them in.
      So, did you look in Users to see if they are there?

      Your listing from the logfile show that you have choosen not to write changes to AD, and also that you have choosen not to copy users. Find the appropriate options and choose to do a migratrion not just testing.

      Thank you everybody for your replies. The windows 2000 server is a global catalog. I checked the Users container but they are not there either.

      I chose “Test the migration and migrate later?” option because I don’t want to disturb my current NT domain.

      Which is the best way to accomplish this?

      Thank you for your time.
