Warning: Wrong Update Level or Service Pack

The operating system that created the backup copy of Active Directory has a different update level or service pack than the operating system on the current computer. Or the computer needs to run Windows Update.

Upgrade the computer with the lower update level or service pack so that both computers are running with the same update level or service pack. Run Windows Update to get the latest software patches and security fixes.

The only time you should override this warning is during an emergency when the dead computer was running an earlier update level or service pack that is no longer available.

Windows Server 2019: U-Move does not allow moving Active Directory to a computer that has an older update level.

How to override this warning


Software Patch Required

In some cases U-Move will warn you if it detects that a required software patch is missing that is necessary for Active Directory to operate successfully. Go to Windows Update and install the KB software patch that is indicated in the warning message.
