DFS Consolidation Wizard: Access Denied
Posted on 2012-03-09
I am using the file server migration tool kit. I try running the DFS Consolidation Root Wizard. It asks me for the DFS server, and I enter the name of the 2008 R2 Enterprise server I am using. It then asks me where I want to create the root folder. I enter the location and name and it creates it for me. I then enter the old server name (2003 server) in the next step and it locates them. Then I click next and it errors out saying:
Consolidation Result : errors
Enable DFS name consolidation : success
Configured server1-old (original name: server1) : errors
server-old (original name: server1)
Cannot create share on DFS1 (param error (0)) ShareName=#server1, Path=f:\dfsroots\server1, Comment=DFSConsolidation links from server1 to server1-old.wps.local
System Error: Access is denied.
I am using the domain admin account and have full access to the server. Any thoughts on where the hitch is?
