I've searched the forums and was not able to find this particular problem so hopefully someone more knowledgeable than I can help. I have an issue with the Transfer ID utility erroring out at the DIB copy portion of a NetWare 6.5 SP8 migration to 64-bit OES2 SP2. The eDirectory Precheck and Preparation portion of the Transfer ID complete successfully with green check marks. When the Transfer ID gets to the DIB copy part I get a series of error messages.

This is the error from the mignds.log file:

05-05-2011:09:56:20:Information: The DS version on the source server is 10554.

In the Transfer ID Migration Log this is what appears:

It looks like the Mig utility can't run ncpmig.nlm on the source server for whatever reason. The previous steps completed successfully so I don't think it's an issue of login rights. The OES2 SP2 server is fully patched with all critical and optional patches. I'd like to add that I've done a couple migrations in my test lab prior to this and they both went through smoothly. I'm also following the exact same steps I used when I performed the lab migrations.

I've also tried the same migration using OES2 SP1 (fully patched and not), OES2 SP2 (non-patched) and OES2 SP3 (patched and not) with the exact same error message. This leads me to believe it's something in the source server causing the issue but I can't, for the life of me, figure out what.

Source server is running NW6.5 SP8 and eDir 8.7.3.10. Target server is OES2 SP2 and eDir 8.8.5 HP6. Does anyone have insight into why the Transfer ID is failing at the DIB copy? Thanks in advance.
