I am trying to migrate local users from a Windows Server 2003 SP2 32bit server to a Windows Server 2008 Enterprise R2 server.  

I have installed powershell on the source server and am getting an error message when running the Export-SmigServerSetting cmdlet per the following article:

Attached is a screenshot of the error I am receiving.

Any ideas?

    I did have Powershell 1.0 installed.  So I ran the update to Powershell 2.0 and installed.

    I tried again and am getting the same error.

    Attached is the error.

    The cmdlet you are trying to use is part of the Windows Server Migration Tools module.  It will need to be installed also:

    Good luck!

    I was able to create a deployment package from the source server and it worked great.  Thanks for your help.
