The target domain admins should have admin rights on the machine you are migrating. Use GPO and Restricted Groups to add admins to computer(s) or use a script.

For example: net localgroup administrators "TargetDomain\Group_or_User" /add

Have you logged on as a correct user to perfom migration?

make sure that you have disabled any antivirus software if installed on workstation (Specially Mcafee), it will block the agent operation.
Also make sure that computer IP and hostname is correct (means whatever ping response you got from ADMT server for the computer hostname, you need to verify that on actual computer physically).
May be there is stale DNS entry

Might be a longshot but do you have a Forest Trust created between the 2 domains? If so you will also need domain admin access in each of the domains to move objects between them. Simply setting up a connection and using DNS is not enough.
