server migration to new domain

Hi Experts,

I am in a phase of migration users and computer with ADMT to a new domain.
We also moved  one server to the new domain.
But now we have major problems.

The workstation service is not running anymore. Any ideas ?
The permissions on the server are wrong.
Now to move to the old domain is not working anymore :-(

What is the correct way to migrate a server with ADMT ?

ADMT shouldn't cause the issues you describe. However, in practice I have never seen the need to use a tool to migrate a server. Just unjoin from the old domain and join the new. Copy over shortcuts from user profiles as required.

Make sure you have the latest ADMT though.

Meanwhile, you may have a different issue now. Can you get the server to join the new domain?

yes the service WORKSTATION is down :

The Workstation service depends on the SMB 1.x MiniRedirector service which failed to start because of the following error:
The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.

I have enabled SMBv1

But still cannot start the Workstation service.
Any ideas ?

Do I need a reboot ?
After the reboot the same issue.

any ideas ?

Yes I removed the dependency in the registry.
