    I have previously used the Windows Server 2008 R2 migration cmdlets and they
    worked fine. I am trying them again but this time trying to migrate to
    Windows Server 2008 R2 RC that was just released. I have them all working
    except for the part of the File Server migration where you migrate the data
    (shares, files). This is also the only migration that uses these two cmdlets,
    Send-SmigServerData and Receive-SmigServerData. When running these I get an
    error message from both stating that they can't connect to the destination
    and source servers, respectively.
    I have verified my steps and connectivity between the two servers. I have
    followed the 5 Troubleshoot data migration connectivity troubleshooting steps
    located here I have
    even turned off both firewalls just to be sure.

    Here are the steps from the guide that I am using:

    Make sure that users are notified that they should stop using the source
    server at this time to prevent any possible data loss. You can run the
    following command to list all the currently open files to determine the
    potential impact of performing this step.
    net file

    Disconnect all users from the source server by stopping the LanMan server
    Stop-Service LanmanServer -force

    Use the following command to run the Receive-SmigServerData cmdlet on the
    destination server. Use a Windows PowerShell session that is running with
    elevated user rights.

    Use the following command to run the Send-SmigServerData cmdlet on the
    source server to migrate data and shared folders. Use a Windows PowerShell
    session that is running with elevated user rights.
    Send-SmigServerData –ComputerName <DestinationServer> –SourcePath d:\users
    –DestinationPath d:\shares\users -Recurse -Include All -Force

    Any ideas? Does anyone know if this even works on the latest Windows Server
    2008 R2 RC?

  2. Hello DangerMaus,

    You should better post this questions to the connect newsgroups where the
    Win7 or 2008 R2 are reviewed.

    Best regards
