Hello Neil,

Thanks for your post.

If you are using the built-in Administrator account, please log off and log on with another account that has net administrator privileges. Then locate to "C:\Program Files
\Windows Small Business Server\Bin\" folder and run the "MigrationWizard.exe" program manually. Does this issue still occur?

If issue still occurs, check for the migrationtask.xml file under C:\program files\Windows small business server\data and the MigrationWizard log under C:\program files
\Windows small business server\Log to see if you can find more information recorded.

This issue is ofen caused by FSMO role seizure failure. So, please look at Event log and see if there is any AD or FSMO errors there. If there are too many errors, we might 
need to start the migration again.

CRM data migration 10-13-04
Is there an easy way to migrate data from one CRM server to another? I have looked through the Data Migration toolkit, but it seems to be geared more towards migrating Goldmine/Act/etc to CRM, by populating the cdf tables "manually".

migration VC6 studio 2008
Bonjour, ma question est dans l'obet. Y a t il des pr�cautions particulieres en passant de visual C++ 6.0 (un peu ancien mais encore assez l�ger) vers visual studio 2008. Y a t il un interet pour moi de migrer, sachant que je travaille plutot en C++. Je fais aussi du PHP, je crois que l'�diteur VS 2008 permet de le g�rer, mais je ne sais pas s'il g�re les classes, le debugger, pour faire r�ellement du d�veloppement et non pas uniquement du codage.

5.5 to 2003 migration failed.
I migrated from 5.5 to 2003 I followed the directions in the "Exchange 2003 Deployment Guide" I set up the connection and suposedly the public folder migration.

Rules wizard does not work in Outlook XP

Nothing seems to be amiss in the registry. The rules wizard is not functioning. You push the button, and it does nothing. The same result occurs when you access the wizard through submenus. The add in manager cannot add new files. It lets you select them from the list, but when you click on the open button it does not allow anything to be added.

Mixing ATL and MFC code in a Visual C++ ATL Wizard project
Hi everybody, I have a Visual C++ 6 project created using the ATL Wizard option, in which I defined a number of ATL classes that work fine. I tried to add an MFC class with Automation enabled but the wizard failed because if could not find the line //{{AFX_APPEND_ODL}} in the project.odl file. The fact is that an ATL project doesn't even have an odl file, instead it has an idl file. Is there any workaround that would allow me to mix ATL and MFC classes?

Money 2004 Install Wizard won't come back :(
I need to find out how to get the initial setup wizard to run. I was going through the initial set up of accounts, but had to stop. I closed Money, assuming that it would save to that point and re-open to where I was. But now when I start money, it does not give me the wizard. It opens to the program home page. I tried uninstalling the program (not that much was entered, so it was no big thing), but it still opens on the money home page when I re-install and open it again. What do I need to do to get it to start fresh???? Please help. Thanks Remove the "FOUR YOU" in my emai...

Migration Question
Hello: Not quite clear on this topic. I have several users who own multiple mailboxes. I understand that fact that Exchagne 2003 can only match 1 user to 1 mailbox. Running the ADC wizard, it correctly identified these users and associated mailboxes. I marked the primaries as such and I assume the others will be marked resources. My question. Will these resource mailboxes be migrated and who will "own" them. How does this work? Ideally, I need the same users that own these to have access to them post migration with all mail intact. Thanks The ADC should create disabled a...

DPM server migration
Hi, We have x2 AD forests; Source is win2000 and Target is win2003 domain. DPM 2007r2 currently resides on Source Forest. Eventually we will be moving the DPM server (along with all other servers) onto the 2003 forest. I am wondering what is going to happen to all the backup jobs that were backed up on the 2000 forest? For example if file server FS1.source.com moves to new domain and becomes FS1.target.com and data prior to migration requires to be restored onto FS1.target.com, will DPM simply allow this or is there some form of sid/guid check before restoration happens?
