ADMT Server 2012

Microsoft has finally released a version of ADMT that can be installed on Server 2012 & Server 2012 R2. Details from the ADMT migration guide:

ADMT v3.2 has recently been updated and re-released. The version remains v3.2 because it’s functionally the same as its predecessor (that is, there are no new features). This final release includes various bug fixes and can be used with all supported Windows operating systems and versions of Windows Server Active Directory:

  • The server where you install ADMT can run any supported version of Windows Server, including Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2012. 
  • The source and target domain controllers must be writeable, but they can run any supported version of Windows Server with a user interface (not Server Core), including Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2012.
  • The source and target domains must be at Windows Server 2003 domain functional level or higher.
  • The computers that can be migrated can run any supported version of Windows, including Windows 8.1.
  • You can use any version of SQL Server for the ADMT database.

You can download the new version on the Connect site. The updated migration guide is also available here.

  1. Is this information still current? The link to the connect site is broken. Was the new 3.2 removed? Moved elsewhere? Any help would be terrific, as this is exactly the utility I need.

    2. That link you just posted works, but from there when I hit the link for the ADMT (https://connect.microsoft.com/site1164/Downloads/DownloadDetails.aspx?DownloadID=53423) I get "Page Not Found" again.

      **That was with Chrome. When I tried to connect with IE, it asked me for MS Live credentials, which I entered, and then got "This Page Can't Be Displayed".

      Hmmmm

    3. Assumption but, it looks like it might be requiring that you be a MSFT Partner or an Azure customer to get the goods and of course that would have be tied to your LiveID. I have both so I can view them. I would attach them to the blog but they have this disclaimer "Reminder: You must accept the enclosed License Terms in order to use this software. You cannot distribute download packages."
