To select which application database to move, use Advanced Options.

Install the applications before moving AD

For U-Move to load the databases you need to first install the supported applications listed above. Do this while preparing the destination computer.

Windows Server 2008-2016: Click on Control Panel -> System and Security -> Administrative Tools -> Server Manager, right-click on Roles and select Add Role.

Windows Server 2003: Click on Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs, and then click on Add/Remove Windows Components. Have your Windows CD/DVD ready.

U-Move will remind you if it detects any missing roles of applications that were installed on the source computer but not on the destination computer.

Unsupported Applications

Do not install any other unsupported applications before moving AD . Do not, for example, install SQL Server or Systems Management Server (SMS). Wait until after you move Active Directory. Once you have successfully moved Active Directory (and verified that it is working okay) you can then safely install all other applications.
