While trying to merge one site in our organization to another (site A
in domain A has to join Site B in Domain B, both sites have only one
server) I encountered the following problem;
The move server wizard is busy with the installation of the new
directory database when I get the following error: "The service did
not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion
After this the move server wizard returns everything to the original
It looks like the Directory services service cannot be stopped by the
account that it assigns to the service. I made sure that the account
that it wants to use has all the rights needed on the server.
Has anybody encountered this problem before? if so any hints on how I
can fix this?
