Hello, trying to migrate a small home folder share from a 2003 server to 2012. Using MS file server migration toolkit 1.2. I am getting the following errors and had no avail on googling the errors. any ideas here?
errors:
 -Cannot read volume name from volume mount point \servername\home
-System error: 4390, The file or directory is not a reparse point Cannot read free space on volume
-System error: 3, The system cannot find the path specified.

I can easily browse to the new share, the old share, and they seem to have correct permissions. Thanks for any insight.

Server 2012 has the migration toolkit already available.
start powershell as an administrator on the destination machine
Install-WindowsFeature Migration
cd %Windir%\System32\ServerMigrationTools\
SmigDeploy.exe /package /architecture X86 /os WS03 /path <deployment folder path>

Open in new window

<deployment folder path> is the source location
on the source machine open a command prompt as administrator go to the folder created in the deployment folder path
run
.\smigdeploy.exe

Open in new window

on Server 2012 open powershell as an administrator
you may have to open port 7000, suggest you setup the folder structure to mirror the source
add-pssnapin microsoft.windows.servermanager.migration
