We're trying to do Platespin Migrate 9.0.2 discovery of a Windows server and we're getting an 'Access Denied' Error.  This server is not in the domain and not in DNS.  We're trying to discover by IP and using a local administrator account.

Thanks,

Jim

How are you defining the local administrator account?  is is servername\username or is it .\username?

Yeah, IP\username.  When you do Platespin discovery do you need to use the FQDN instead of IP?

I am not sure.  Generally, IP\Username is not going to work on permission calls.  I would suggest using either the "dot slash username" (.\Username) or Servername\Username.  You could also try username@servername, but it won't be in DNS, so that will most likely fail.  You could get around that by either adding the non-member server into DNS or by adding an entry into your HOSTS file.

I am glad that worked for you.  It generally does when trying to get permissions on a local machine not on the domain.
