Troubleshooting ADMT Command-Line Issues

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2

Applies to: Active Directory Migration Tool 3.2 (ADMT 3.2)

Note that the command-line tool uses the scripting component, and, therefore, scripting issues are also applicable to the command-line tool.

Duplicate command-line parameters override any previous occurrences

If a command-line parameter is specified more the once, the last value overrides the previous value. This is by design.

Extended characters are not displayed by command-line interface

The ADMT command-line interface does not convert Unicode. Therefore, extended characters such as the German "umlaut" do not display correctly.

Enable source account option not disabled in intraforest migrations

When you perform intraforest migrations, accounts are moved and not copied between domains. The source account is removed as part of the move. However, the option to enable a source account is available through the ADMT command-line interface. When you use this option, you will receive the following warning:

WRN1: 7362: <object_name> - Could not enable source account. The parameter is wrong
