(2014-06-20) Installing ADMT v3.2 On W2K12(R2)

Posted by Jorge on 2014-06-20


To download ADMT see this blog post.

To be able to install the latest version of ADMT, it must be either a GUI based member server (preferred!) or a writable DC (RWDC). Server Core installations are not supported, nor is it possible to install on a read-only domain controller (RODC).

Remember that you require either SQL Express or SQL Server to be able to use ADMT. While using W2K12R2 I was not able to use the Windows Internal Database feature. For the free version of SQL I had to download and install SQL Express. The latest available version (at the time of writing) of SQL Express (Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 1 (SP1) Express) can be downloaded through this link. During the installation of SQL Express will may be invited to download and install additional updates. After installing SQL (Express), you can start the ADMT install. It is not possible to upgrade current ADMT installations. You must uninstall old ADMT versions before installing the latest version. Assuming you chose to use SQL Express, the default instance name is .\SQLEXPRESS as you can see below in the picture.

On W2K12(R2), after clicking the Start button, do not search "ADMT", but rather search for "Active Directory Migration Tool" or just "Migration".
