Active Directory Migration Tool

I am installing a new domain over the weekend, and I am tryin to install Active Directory Migration Tool. I have 2 servers- one is running Windows Server 2003(primary DC), and the other is running Windows Server 2008 R2 (secondary DC). I am going to unjoin the secondary DC from the domain, and set it up as the primary for the new domain. I have tried to install Active directory migration tool on the secondary DC, but it fails. I tried an older version of ADMT, but it says that it needs to be installed on Windows Server 2003. Since I am trying to get away from the server running 2003, shouldn't I put ADMT on the 2008 server?

If you are having 2008 server, then you should install ADMT 3.1

If you have windows 2008 R2 server, then you should install ADMT 3.2

Always install ADMT in target domain

What errors you are facing there ?

Are you sure that you are installing ADMT 3.2 on windows 2008 R2 server ?
Other wise it will give above error.
Also ADMT 3.2 requires SQL Server 2005 Express with SP3 or SQL Server Express 2008 with SP1
as minimum prerequisite.

Note: Do not install SQL Server Express 2008 with SP1 if you are going to install ADMT on 2008 R2 Domain controller. It has known issue.
If you want to install ADMT on 2008 R2 DC, the use SQL Server 2005 Express with SP3
1st you need to install SQL

Download SQLEXPR.EXE from above link.
