Error received when launching NDS Migrator, the following message appears:
"Cannot Find User
Unable to validate your NT user account with DC"
Clicking "OK" proceeds, but the application closes automatically shortly after.
1. One of the servers that hosts a Flexible Single Master of Operations (FSMO) role cannot be contacted or there is a slow link to the FSMO servers.
2. NDS Migrator console is not a member of the domain that is being logged into.
To troubleshoot the issue, verify that all FSMO servers can be contacted from the NDS Migrator console computer by typing the following at the command prompt:
netdom query fsmo
The result should be similar to the following (as an example):
C:\>netdom query fsmo
Schema owner DC_NAME01.domain.com
Domain role owner DC_NAME01.domain.com
PDC role DC_NAME02.domain.com
RID pool manager DC_NAME02.domain.com
Infrastructure owner DC_NAME02.domain.com
The command completed successfully.
If one (or all) of these roles come back with an error, please take the appropriate actions to remedy the problem so that the above command succeeds from the NDS Migrator console computer.
The NDS Migrator console must be a member of the target domain that is being logged into.
C:\>netdom query pdc
Verify that the PDC is contactable
