High level steps are:

1) In older domain, do a backup of the CRM organization database in SQL Server
2) In the new SQL Server, restore the backup
3) In the new CRM Server, run the CRM Deployment Manager and run the Import Organization wizard selecting the newly restored database

If you need more help with the above steps please post again.

The errors mean that the user account you are logged in as whilst performing the import must be mapped to a user in the CRM database that has the System Administrator role.

Do you know which user in the database had the System Administrator role?  There could be more than one, it doesn't matter which one you choose.

Feridun KadirPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
I understand that the domains are different.  The list of users that the wizard shows you are the users defined in the CRM database.

Each CRM user has a record in the CRM database and each one user is mapped to an Active Directory account (in the old domain). The wizard relinks each user record to an Active Directory account in the new domain.

You must link the user you are logged in as to one of the users in the list that has the System Administrator role (it doesn't matter of the user names are different).

Did your Windows account have a CRM user record in the old domain with the System Administrator role?  If not and you are having trouble you could go back to the old CRM and make sure that you have a user record with System Administrator and then do the backup and restore process again.

Did you give the user the role named System Administrator? It must have that exact role. You can the user other roles as well, but it must have System Administrator ".

Hmm, this is puzzling. What is the Access mode set to for your CRM record in the old database?

Is it Full, Administrative or Read-Only?  It should be Full.

Ram Kumar ChellamAuthor Commented:
It was read-only, just changed to Administrative.

Let me restore the new back up and update you the status.

These errors probably mean that you have not applied an Update Rollup to the new installation. Check which Update Rollup is applied to the old installation (in Add/Remove Programs, view installed updates) and ensure that the same or later update rollup is applied on the new server.

Glad you got the other problem sorted.
