Migration Tool target server authentication failure

We are trying to use the migration tool for the first time. We are moving from Netware OES 2 to Linux OES2 SP1.

In the migration tool, I can get the source server to be "green" when I put in my credentials. However, the "Target Server Authentication" returns the error:

"Authentication to Server Failed. Edirectory Authentication failed with the given credentials. Refer to Migration.log of the project for more details."

I get the same error whether or not I choose to use SSL. I know the credentials are correct because I am able to log in to iManager with them on the new server. I have pasted the information from the log. I must be missing something simple. Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: Migration Tool target server authentication failure

Run PKIDIAG.NLM on the NetWare server to make sure your SSL certificates
haven't expired.

For more general OES2 migration hits, check:

Re: Migration Tool target server authentication failure

Doesn't have the user to be lum enabled on the oes 2 sp1 box ?
Can you run "id <edir user>" on the oes box and see if that user could be found via lum ?
