Hello, this is my first post here on this great forum, i hope someone can help me here.

I am trying to migrate from  windows 2003 sp2 std edition to SBS 2011. I have follow the step by step, and made me a key file and run the migration prep tool, and have also run the config analyzer with out any error.

The sbs say that the source server does not meet the minimum requirements for migration.
when i look in the log file i see this:
[832] 110315.121713.6152: Setup: Setting source OS to Other
[832] 110315.121713.6152: Setup: Running requirement check: MigrationReadyRequirement

Have you run the migration prep tool on the source server?

Also, there are several more pre-reqs that have to be run on the server before you can begin the migration

I have attached the MS whitepaper.
