Doing a migration between Windows 2000 AD Forest and Windows 2003 Forest (InterForest).  User Migration worked fine but when I try to migrate computers the computer account gets created but never moved to new domain.  Error I get is "ERR3:7075 Failed to change domain affiliation, hr=8007054b    The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted."

I have verfied DNS, Trust relationsship (I have two way trust).  User is member of domain admin.  I am logged on to new AD DC as source domain domain admin.  I can attach entire ADMT log if needed.

Please check this
When migrating Computer:
Permission in Souce domain : Domain administrator or administrator in the
source domain and on each computer
Permission in Target domain: Delegated permission on the computer OU and
local administrator on the computer on which ADMT is installed.

The problem may be related to allowing zone files.  On the target machine you have to set it to allow Zone transfers.  We had a very similar issue and that resolved the issue.

I've been dealing with this EXACT SAME issue for over two weeks now and I finally found the solution.  The _msdcs folder on the destination DNS server was pointing to a root folder that didn't exist.  I deleted the pointer folder (you can also delete the root folder if it exists too) and ran 'net stop netlogon' then 'net start netlogon' TWICE.  It will recreate the _msdcs folder under the domain in DNS.
