I need to migrate users, groups for a 2008 domain to 2008R2 domain, there is no trust between these domains.  ADMT will not connect from 2008 domain to 2008R2 domain.

I get the error:

ADMT is unable to connect to domain controller
\\1p, in source_domain.  Access is denied. (0x80070005)".

    Accepted Solution

    Creating trust between the domains is a vital part of migration. You cannot migrate the users and group without it.
    Go through the documentation of the ADMT from the following link:

    Active Directory Migration Tool (ADMT) Guide: Migrating and Restructuring Active Directory Domains

    unfortunately I can not gain a trust between the two domains so answer is correct but useless
