Hi Experts,

I am in the middle of a SBS 2011 migration. I am the step where it is asking for the source server, domain name, administrator account and destination server. However, it will will not authenticate my credentials and move forward in wizard.

I can do the following:

Ping from new server to source server via computer name, IP address and netbios name
Ping from source server to new server via computer name, IP address and netios name

I have also checked the following:
-Both servers on same time zone/clock times
-Turned off firewalls on both servers

I can also authenticate to the old server via the command line from the new server.

Any ideas?
