    Posted: 08 Jul 2010 at 8:58am
I am trying to migrate machines and users from old domain to new domain.  If I run it for just the user that is logged in the program works fine.  It I try to do for all users, profwix.exe fails.  In the log file all I get is migration service fails... Access denied.  I have ran this under a local admin account.  A domain admin account and the same thing.  Please help since I am under a deadline

There could be a number of different reasons. What is the exact error? Are you running Profwiz.exe from the local machine or from a network share?
 
Thanks.

I have ran it from both a network share and on the local machine.  I have tried using the profwiz.vbs and the executable.  When running the profwiz.exe, i get a pop-up that says Migration Fails see log file.
 
Inside the log file all I see is...
Creating migration process.....Done
Creating migration service......Fails.
Access denied
 
Migration Fails
Access denied.
 
Is there a specific service that starts for this process?  Are there any elevated rights to start this service?

User Profile Wizard installs a temporary service that actually does the migration. You should check whether the service is already running. Open the Computer Management console and check for "User Profile Migration Service". It should not exist. If it does, check the status of the service. If it is anything other than "Started" reboot the machine.
 
By default any Administrator account can start a service. However, there may be some security setting in place that is preventing this.

I was able to find the service after running the wizard with nothing in the config file except for license information.  Once I put in information into the config file and try to run the vbs script the service does not run.  Any ideas?

Well, if you get the same error (Access Denied) it does seem to suggest that the account specified in the <LocalAdmin> value is causing the problem.

It seems to work now.  Not the way I would like but it seems to work.  I had to change the service from starting manually to starting automatically.  Then I was able join the new domain

Again, that does seem to indicate that (for whatever reason) the <LocalAdmin> does not have permissions to control the service. Are these machines on an existing domain? Could there be any Group Policy in place?

Yes these machines are on a domain and we are migrating to another domain.  I have access to the GPO of the domain that we are migrating from but not from the domain we are migrating too
