I am working on transferring the ID from a Netware 6.5 SP8 server to a new OES 11 SP1 server.
Just yesterday I completed a OES 2 SP3 to OES 11 SP1 ID Transfer without issue.

running migration utility from target server gui
enter noc01 as the source, enter password for admin
green checkmark
verify admin account password and root password on target
select transfer ID
click start
click OK past first info boxes
click NEXT to start first step - eDirectory Precheck
I get an error, Failed to resolve source server hostname from IP address

from target server, I can ping noc01.bcsc.k12.in.us and it comes back as the correct ip address
I can dig 10.100.0.97 and it comes back list noc01.bcsc.k12.in.us in the answer section


migration log shows the following:
