I am trying to perform a cross-forest migration and after migrating user accounts I am unable to migrate thier password.  This is the first time I am attempting the migration of this user account.  I receive the following error in the log:

"Did not try to copy the password for CN=Last\, First, since the source password has not been changed since the last migration of this user."

In previous testing I was able to migrate the password and now I can't, not sure why it would want a change to the source in order to migrate as I want the source password to be migrated to the targret domain account.

Hi

According to the migration best practices ADMT should be installed in the target domain not in the source domain and if i understand correctly you are using ADMT 3.1 not 3.2.

This is the know issue with ADMT 3.1, instead use ADMT 3.2 which support password migration.

Unable to establish a session with the password expert server: The RPC server is unavailable

Due to different password policy in other domain, user must change password to next login is always checked in inter forest migration and hence sometime password migration doesn't work.
