  • SBS 2003 to SBS 2011migration issue.

    I am migrating from SBS 2003 to SBS 2011 for a customer. The migration is "stuck" at attempting to authenicate the administrator for the source system:
    ďverify that the domain name and log on credentials are correct and then try againĒ

    Everything that I find on this points back to the wrong credentials (that is too obvious though) and or time sync issues.
    Verified date and time settings on both servers (ok)
    Verified date and time settings in BIOS on new server (ok)
    While logged into new SBS server I can:
    Ping Active directory (company.local)
    Ping source server name (without the FQDN)
    Telnet to source server name port 389
    Map a drive (net use) using the administrator credentials.

    I have rebuilt the server as well, it gets halted at this point every time

    Are you using the administrator account called "Administrator"?
    If so then that account is blocked in SBS 2011. You have to create an equivalent account called e.g. admin or netadmin or sbsadmin - just not administrator.
