SBS 2008 migration issue

Hello,

I am having troubles with SBS migration. As I have been reading here many other also have had some issues. I have tried several solutions.
The migration tool ends up on error "source server does not meet requirements" and here is what the log file says:

[1744] 110302.112751.0206: Setup: Failure: Error - Run the Migration Preparation Tool on the Source Server - Has Help

Any idea what might be the problem?
Source server is virtual image at the moment, because we do not wish to perform this on production enviroment before it has been tested.
Target server is HP, this has been tried with smartstart and without smartstart. Same results.
We have run the migration check list very carefully and everything is done there. I am starting to feel that there is something wrong with the source server SBS2003 installation. There is no firewall or virus-scanning software installed.
MS migration tools which is used is the right one for the installation media used on target server.

Any idea where I could start to troubleshooting more?

Are you running any Symantec applications on the source server? e.g. Backup Exec, BESR, Enpoint Protection, etc.

If so, I would remove them prior to trying to migrate.

You mention that this is SBS 2003...is this the original SBS 2003 or SBS 2003 R2?

AustinComputerLabsCommented:
The log states "Error - Run the Migration Preparation Tool on the Source Server"
This indicate that the source server not been properly prepared.
Did you receive any errors when the prep tool ran?
Did you run the Exchange best practices test for migration?

didn't really answer my question,
what I'm trying to discover is if  SBS 2003 SP1 (not Windows Server 2003 SP1) is installed?

There is no Symantec software installed and the migration tools runs fine on source server. I wonder why it is saying "Setting source OS to Other"?

You'll need to download and run the SBS Best Practice Analyzer (www.sbsbpa.com) to find out what might be missing or incorrectly set on the SBS 2003 server

Here a log from a succesful migration from SBS 2003 to SBS 2008 done this weekend.
Just ignore the entries regarding the no NIC found issue (i thank Dell for that hour of my life I will never get back).
I hope this helps.

THe SBS SP1 has been installed and the migration is done by the microsoft migration quide. All the preparations on the source server passes without errors.

AustinComputerLabsCommented:
When you post "The SBS SP1 has been installed " does that mean you were able to complete this migration and no longer need help?

If you are still having issues, can you attach the SBSSetup.log?

No. Problem remains still.
Please see the attached log file.

It seems that I have the "migration ready" value as 1 and "last check" is last Friday. Event the "check again" on target server has been run after that.
I tried to delete the values from source server and run "check again" from target server and this time it does not write these values again. Something might be wrong there. Must check more tomorrow, maybe it is better to start all over again with the source server (virtual image) and with the target server installation also.

I always hope that if they fail, they fail before DCPROMO completes, then I can wipe the new server and start from scratch without having to move FSMO and all that.

tietokonemaailmaAuthor Commented:
Tried to start all over again. With fresh source virtual image and fresh installation of target server.
Did everything on source server by the microsoft migration quide and still the target servers sbssetup log file is giving the exact same error.
If you have any ideas it would be great!

Worked with MS support and they helped fixed the problem. Turned out that the RPC service was using some Network System account. Changed it to use the Local System account. Rebooted, migration progressing.

Two solutions from another question here:

Yoa are right, problem was solved by this: "Turned out that the RPC service was using some Network System account. Changed it to use the Local System account."
Thanks!
