Error code=51 when using ADMT to Migrate Users from 2000 to 2003 SBS

Posted on 2008-11-13
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I am using ADMT to per the instructions on page 30 of this document:

All steps up to this have been completed to this point.  I can successfully ping OldServer.OldDomain.local from NewSBS and NewServer.NewDomain.local from OldSBS.  Correct NetBIOS names appear in the drop down boxes on the "Domain Selection" window of the "User Account Migration Wizard."  Exact error message is:

Windows cannot find the network path.  Verify that the network path is correct and the destination computer is not busy or turned off.  If Windows still cannot find the network path, contact your network administrator. (Error code=31, domain=OLDDOMAIN)

    1) did you run DCDIAG and netdiag in verbose mode ?

    2) How is the DNS setup ?

    I hope this helps !

    To Question 1) No, I didn't.  I was not sure how that would help in a SBS setting.  Any direction on exactly what should be tested would be apprectiated.
    To Question 2) SBS2000 Server DNS set up for use SBS2003's IP as its forward.  SBS2003 set up with SBS2000.domain.local to IP for SBS2000 as a forwarder and all others removed.
    I can provid screen shots if that doesn't make sense.

    Accepted Solution


    DCDIAG /V /D /E /C > c:\DCDIAG-srvname.log
    NETDIAG /V  c:\NETDIAG-srvname.log

    look for the word  fail in the logs

    Also consider running the SBS Best practices analyzer ( BPA )

    Sorry, I have been in the ER, dehydrated and sick.  I will check out this tomorrow and get the results for you.   It is a small enough organization that I can do it all manually, I just wanted to avoid that if I could.
