    All,

    I'm trying to migrate 2700+ computers into an 2k3
    forest and when using the ADMTv2 tools I'm unable to
    copy/paste a list of computer names (generated from net
    view) into the migration wizard. I get a blank box with
    a red "X" in it with no other explanations. So I have a
    couple of questions; one does ADMT have a limit to the
    number of computers it can migrate at one time and two
    can we "import" a list from another program (i.e. a text
    file) directly into the migration wizard??

    Thank you so much,

    Hello Carl,

    Having done extremely large migrations using ADMT, I think you should
    look into
    the scripting component of ADMT.

    Cheers,

  3. Hi Carl,

    Thanks for your posting here.

    Theoretically speaking, there is no limit for the client machines to be
    dispatched by the ADMT v2 tool.

    But during migration, each computer migrated will establish a connection
    back to the ADMTv2 server. So for the performance point of view, it is good
    to dealt with hundreds by batch as each ADMT instance need to wait until
    all the agents are dispatched and started. So we often create a schedule to
    perform the migration plan.

    Using command line is a good idea. You can refer to the Help document of
    AMDT tool or the following web site.
