ADMT Service Account - Permission and Configuration

The ADMT service account needs to have proper permission in source and target domains.  You don’t need to use 2 separate accounts.  You can use a single service account for the entire migration.  Here is the procedure:

1.    Create an account in the Target Domain
2.    Add this account to the Domain Admins group in the Target Domain


3.    In Source Domain, add this account (from target) to the built-in administrator group (not Domain Admin)


If you get the following error message, make sure you have the proper permissions in both source and target domains. 

Unable to establish a session with the password export server. Access is denied
