ADMT 3.2 Access is denied when an input file is attempted

David Wilcox 6 Reputation points

If I attempt to read an input file (instead of browsing the source domain) to select a source user object, I immediately receive an "


"unable to get information for domain '', :Access is Denied."


Additional information

  1. ADMT 3.2 running on member server in target domain
  2. Trust established and verified(two-way external domain-level trust w/ SID filtering disabled
  3. Migration account created in target domain and added to domain admins group/administrators in source
  4. Log into the ADMT server with the migration account. I can ping and access the NetBIOS of the computers
  5. source & target domain$$$ empty groups exist.

I can "complete" the user wizard on an ID I select from the source domain, but doesn't allow me to move past the input selection prompt.

Any known cause / solution? - I have reviewed several articles in the forum79448-admt-error.jpg

    The account you run ADMT under will need to have administrative rights in both the source and target domain.
    Or there will be access denied error.
    For more information, you can refer to the following links:
