Where is my admin rights within exchange 2013 EAC?

Recent project included a migrate from 2007 exchange to an 2013, a relatively simple task with the amount of resources and guides out there on the internet. However not so the case this time. The old 2007 box is fine, fully updated, all working peachy. I installed exchange 2013 through the setup wizard, not through console, all seemingly installed correctly, all pre-requists installed as well as patches for servers etc, as every guide indicated. I log in through the /epc , as administrator, the same account as it was installed on, and I am faced with a cut down, non administrator view with no option to migrate,I have also made sure to be part of the correct group. See below:
Its very frustrating as I dont seem to be able to find any information about what to do in this scenario, if anyone can shed any light, please do!
Thank you

Wrong group.
You are looking at the legacy groups. You have another group called "Organization Management". The account needs to be a member of that group. Exchange should have done that during the installation.

Thank you for the reply Simon, Apologies, I can confirm however that Administrator is also part of the  "Organization Management" group as well.

Create a new account, give it Domain Admin rights and Org Management membership. DO NOT mail enable it.
Try and login again.

I expect the Administrator account is mail enabled on the old server.
