I've done a successful migration of an old and dirty 2k3, and using 10.x.x.x
IP address scheme, fwiw.
Mine went through first time, I'm pleased to say, so I don't have a lot of
insight into troubleshooting problems, however.
Taking a page from Dave Nickason:
Did you raise the domain functional level on the old server?
Did you run the BPA on the old server?
Perhaps other clues in this thread: http://www.tech-archive.net/Archive/.../msg02126.html
