Does Domain Migration Administrator (DMA) support NDS for NT?

Domain Migration Administrator 7.x


Using Domain Migration Administrator (DMA) with NDS for NT is not a supported configuration. DMA has not been tested on domains running NDS for NT. However, you may find that the migration completes successfully depending on which migration options are selected. Based on customer experiences, there are some issues which may arise when trying to migrate from a source domain with NDS for NT:

  1. DMA is unable to copy passwords from user accounts whose passwords were set via NDS for NT.
  2. DMA is unable to migrate sIDHistory if the source PDC has NDS for NT.
    • For more information see the following Knowledge Base article:
      NETIQKB2081- Error: 'SID History cannot be updated for <user>. This operation requires the TcpipClientSupport registry key to be set on <source computer name>. rc=6'.

 We strongly suggest running some pilot testing in your environment to verify DMA's performance in your particular migration scenario.
