    I have a question on Computer Migration
    As a trial i tried to do the migration of one computer at
    the first time and during the wizard it ask whether you
    want to translate files and folders, Local groups ,
    Printers, Registry , shares, User profiles and User
    rights - I would like to know what is the exact
    implication on this after checking it and in the next
    window it asks for the Security translation you want to
    use ? - I want to know what is the implications on this.

    I am guessing by doing this suppose if i have a file in
    the PC which i am migrating after i do this the files will
    change the domain name under the security of that file for
    the groups which was having the older domain name attached
    to it . Is this correct

    In the mean time
    i tried a trial migration of one computer and this was the
    migration.log shows - [ TEST is the PC which i am trying
    to migrate ]

  2. Hi San,

    Thanks for your posting here.

    General speaking, it will modify the resource's ACL so that they can be
    used in the new domain. You can find the detailed information in the Help
    document of ADMT tool. In fact, the normal order to migrate security
    principles is users& groups, computers, resources.

    As for the error in your migration.log, I would like to confirm the
    following information with you.

    Do you install the ADMT v2 on target domain and logon as target domain
    Did you add target domain administrator to the Windows NT domain
    administrators group?
    Please also check if the NT domain administrators group is in the Local
    administrators group on TEST computer.

    I would like to recommend that you refer to the following documents for
    more information.
