I am running the SourceToolWizard on a Server 2003 R2 server and get past the Domain and forest update and the schema update.  I then get the following error:

03/31/2012 18:18:26  !Error! BPAEngine:      Microsoft.WindowsServerSolutions.SmallBusinessServer.Tools.MigrationPrep.Wizard.BPAException: Health scan: SBSMigrationPrep model is not found.
   at Microsoft.WindowsServerSolutions.SmallBusinessServer.Tools.MigrationPrep.Wizard.MBCAEngine.Run()
   at Microsoft.WindowsServerSolutions.SmallBusinessServer.Tools.MigrationPrep.Wizard.BPALauncher.Run()
03/31/2012 18:18:26          Unexpected errors occurred during BPA scan.


Any help would be appreciated.

If you download and install the following program and reboot the source server, it may well continue happily:

When I run sbs.msi from the root of the D:\setup folder, I get the following error:

The installation package cannot be installed by the Windows Installer Service.  You must install a Windows Service Pack that contains a newer version of the Windows Installer Service.

The server is running 2003R2 with SP2 on it so I am a bit stumped.

Thoughts?

I don't see a file named MBCA_setup on either of the disks.  I see SBS.MSI on one of the disks and WS2008_setup.exe on the other.

Have you downloaded the file from the link in my earlier comment?

Once you have, install the software and then reboot, then run the Source Tool Wizard again.

Yes I got it.  The install wizard is up and I'm waiting until after hours tonight to continue with the Migration Wizard just in case.

Appreciate it!

SBS2011 comes on two disks and I was using the wrong disk.  Once I switched, I was able to get the Migration Wizard to function properly.
