"server 2008"exporting ad ou Using the LDIFDE Utility

We are attempting to move an AD OU from one Domain to other using LDIFDE.  We created the LDF file in the old domain but when we attempt to import into the new domain we get "The modification was not permitted for security reasons."

    You need to run the -m switch on LDIFDE when exporting the objects from the old domain in order for them to be imported to the new one. This filters out system generated entries and domain specific information so a new domain can create those entries.

    That got rid of the permission Error  Now we are getting

    Add error on entry starting on line 1: Referral

    The server side error is: 0x202b A referral was returned from the server.

    The extended server error is:

    0000202B: RefErr: DSID-03100768, data 0, 1 access points
          ref 1: ''
