Error: 'Script engine returned a failed result'.

After specifying a VBScript to be used in a DMA project, the error is received 'Script engine returned a failed result'.

The following steps may prevent this error message when specifying a VBScript as a post-user migration script:

1. In the 'Migrate User Accounts' wizard, make sure that VBScript (not JScript) is selected on the Scripting page of the wizard.

2. Also in the 'Migrate User Accounts' wizard, in the Scripting window that contains the script, make sure the format is as follows:

Sub Process
the script goes here
End Sub

NetIQ Technical Support does not support scripting errors.  If your script executes outside of DMA, but does not once placed in the scripting trigger, please contact NetIQ Technical Support for further assistance.
