I'm trying to migrate from an old domain to a new domain using the User Profile Wizard personal edition.  I'm currently joined to the old domain.  The migration process gets almost all the way done until it hits..Joining to domain "NEWDOMAIN"...Fails.  Error 53. The network path was not found.  I currently have several drives on the new domain mapped so I know that I can "talk" to it.  Any thoughts?

I also sometimes get this error:
Error 2699. An attempt to resolve the DNS name of a domain controller in the domain being joined has failed.  Please verify this client is configured to reach a DNS server that can resolve DNS names in the target domain. For information about network troubleshooting, see Windows Help.

I got it...had to set the DNS ip address under the properties for my network adapter to the ip of the domain controller and the wizard completed without any errors.
