DFS Consolidation Wizard: Access Denied

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

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?

The problem was with UAC in Windows 2008.  Even though the Administrator account had full control on the server, User Access Control prevents the wizard from executing certain commands.  I had to make adjustments to the local security policy on the server to allow the wizard to run properly.
