On the last stage of migration in SBS 2003 to SBS 2011, this error keeps on appearing:

Cannot find the Source Server

Verify that the Source Server name is correct, and then try again.

Do you have any idea why this error keeps on appearing?

Do you have any resolution to this kind of issue?

There are various reasons which could have caused this problem. Try doing below:

1)     Sometimes network card timing issues between DNS server and source server creates this problem. To resolve this one, press OK, wait for minimum 30 seconds, and then click Next button.

2)     You should check whether the NetBios is enabled or not. Make sure it is enabled.

3)     Press Shift + F10. It’ll open the command prompt. Ping the source DNS and IP. This will check for the problem.

4)     You should also check whether the dates and times on both servers are correct. At times, other server takes different date and time by default. Servers should be corrected for same date and time.

5)     Enabled firewall at source server can also be a cause of this problem. Disable the firewall at source server and check if it fixes the problem.
