SBS2011 Small Business Server Console doesn't work

Hi Guys,

We are in the middle of a migration from SBS2003 to SBS2011 right now. When starting the migration the SBS Console hangs on the movedata.exe part. It's shuts down, and we cannot use the Migration Wizard.

Does anyone know if we can repair the SBS Console with the Repair Disc?

In case this doesn't work, can we give the SBS2003 machine his FSMO roles back? This so we can reinstall the SBS2011 machine and start the migration over?

We did not yet start the migration of the files and Exchange, because the SBS2011 console doesn't let us start because it doesn't work anymore.

Cheers, Kasper

In all cases of failed migration, best advice is to restore the SBS 2003 from backup, wipe the SBS 2008, run all the pre config and checks on the SBS 2003, clean up the event logs, and begin again.

A quick update: We have run the Repair Disc and can still not run the SBS Console - Migration Wizard.
The error it gives is:

  Stopped working

Problem signature:
  Problem Event Name:      CLR20r3
  Problem Signature 01:      movedata.exe
  Locale ID:      1035

Anybody has any idea how to continue the Migration from here?

Thanks in advance!

We'll since we had limited time for the migration we didnt choose to reinstall SBS 2011. We skipped the first part of the migration wizard and made the changes manually. The migration is a success. Thanks for the answers!

The Migration Wizard of SBS2011 gave a error but so we did the migration without it.
