Error 0xe1100012. Cannot initialize Migration Agent on host "_dc name_" . Error 0x80070005. Access is denied.

Hello, I am experiencing the errors/failures when cloning new users in QMMAD migration sessions and synchronizing passwords for existing users with DirSync.

I am running QMMAD 8.15; the target domain has 2 DCs running Windows 2019. This is an existing environment with over 700 users successfully cloned to date, and the problem only started showing up yesterday with a batch of 12 new users that needed to be cloned.  The new users were actually cloned to the target domain but their sidHistory did not get populated, and the accounts were created disabled.  Every attempt at merging them to complete the migration fails.
The DCs had their Windows update security patches installed the day before the problem started.

I followed the recommendations in the following tid:

I found that the DC already had the recommended registry patch present, but my QMM console server (where QMMAD is installed and that runs both the migration sessions and the dirsync) did not have the patch, so I put the patch in the registry and restarted the server. The problem still remains after the restart. The DC even log has event 10036 corresponding to the migration/password sync sessions, the error message includes phrase "Please raise the activation authentication level at least to RPC_C_AUTHN_LEVEL_PKT_INTEGRITY in client application."

Any pointers are greatly appreciated

Thank you

  • Thank you Alex, the migration is from On-prem to on-prem, so no cloud is involved at this point. This particular error only started happening yesterday. Migration sessions and dirsync were working fine prior to that - target users were created with sidHistory and passwords, and passwords were synched using DirSync (synchronization sessions in QMMAD).  To my knoweldge there were no changes to firewalls, DC configurations, security policies. The only change that seems to be present is MS patches installed on the DC the day before the error showed up. However the other DC in target domain does NOT have the same patches. I repointed QMMAD to that DC but the issue still remains.
