    Hey there,

    I am in process of an ADMT 3.0 migration NT4SP6a128 to Win2k3SP1 Native
    Mode.. 90% of the accounts migrate without issue but around 10% have a
    strange SID history translation problem. In the logs the errors are as

    ERR2:7111 Failed to add sid history for xxxuser to xxxuser. RC=1378

    I cannot find any reference on the 1378 error.. any ideas?

  2. Hi Dan,

    The 1378 is an error indicating the account already exists. Which means
    when you try to move the account, it appears to be migrating the account
    but not the sid information.

    On the source domain, look for a group called domain_netbios_name$$$.
    Thisshould be under USERS. The account gets added to that group when the
    API for
    adding SID history is called. If the account is not removed from this group
    for some reason( should be automatic), then the next time an attempt to add
    sid history is performed for this account the error (1378) occurs.
    Resolution is to remove the account from this group and then try migrating
    the account again.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    In addition, just fyi:

    If Novells NDS4NT is installed it replaces SAMSRV.dll, with a proprietry
    SAMSRV.dll, this seems not to fully support the API set the original dll
    and therefore the process of migrating a user with SID history seem to fail.

    NDS4NT has not been tested with ADMT. NDS4NT is not supported under
    certain situations as per:

    322970 How to Troubleshoot Inter-Forest sIDHistory Migration with ADMTv2

    322981 How to Troubleshoot Inter-Forest Password Migration with ADMTv2

    HOpe it helps.
