Were the users local administrators before the migration?

How about the OU move the users into the admin OU and see if this works or create a new OU and configure it as you need it to work and move the users into this OU.

Maybe there was an OU created in the other server that you missed and this is were the admin rights was coming from ????

So all the user accounts and mailboxes have migrated successfully to the new server.

Have you checked the Users Group Membership?

Have you created a test user in the new DC and tried to grant this test user administrative rights?

Are you trying to add users to the Domain Administrators group or add users to the local client administrator group?

so you just used Exmerge to move users?

what about ADMT?

Exmerge is for moving user mailboxes, not user accounts.
