"The specified instance is hosted on a SQL Server version that is not supported. Use SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server 2008. We recommend you install the latest SQL Server service packs. If you are using SQL Server 2005 Express Edition, you must install SP3 or later. If you are using SQL Server 2008 Express Edition, you must install SP1 or later. Only local installations are supported for SQL Server Express Editions."
Note : this is the same error you would get trying to use an unsupported version of SQL, such as SQL 2008 R2 or SQL 2000.
ADMT v3.2 requires a preconfigured instance of SQL Server for its underlying data store. You should use SQL Server Express. When you use one of the following versions of SQL Server Express, ADMT installation enforces the following service pack requirements:
SQL Server 2005 Express must be installed with Service Pack 3 (SP3) or later.
SQL Server 2008 Express must be installed with Service Pack 1 (SP1) or later.
If you use SQL Server Express, the ADMT console must be installed and run locally on the server that hosts the SQL Server Express database instance.
As an option, you can use full versions of SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server 2008. In this case, you can install and run the ADMT console on a remote computer, and you can run multiple ADMT consoles on different remote computers. If you use a full version of SQL Server, ADMT installation does not enforce any service pack requirements.

The standard practice is to install ADMT on a member computer in the target domain. Install SQL Express 2008 SP1 on a Windows 2008 R2 member server in the target domain and then install ADMT 3.2 onto that same member server.
If you have a requirement to install ADMT 3.2 on a domain controller in order to use command-line or scripted user migrations with SID History, install SQL 2008 SP1 (non-Express edition) on a Windows Server 2008 R2 member server in the target domain and select that remote instance when installing ADMT 3.2 on the DC. Alternatively, you can install SQL Express 2005 SP3 on the DC.
If you have a requirement to install ADMT 3.2 and SQL Express 2008 SP1 on the same DC, use the following steps on target domain DC:
- Install Cumulative Update Package 4 for SQL Server 2008 on the DC - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/963036 .
- Install SQL Express 2008 SP1 on the DC - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=01af61e6-2f63-4291-bcad-fd500f6027ff... . Note the SQL Instance name created during the install (default is SQLEXPRESS).
- Create a domain local group with the format of "SQLServerMSSQLUser$ <DCComputerName> $ <InstanceName>". For example, if the DC is named "DC1" and the SQL instance was "SQLEXPRESS" you would run the following command in an admin-elevated CMD prompt: NET LOCALGROUP SQLServerMSSQLUser$DC1$SQLEXPRESS /ADD
- Retrieve the SQL service SID by using the SC.EXE command with the name of the SQL service instance. For example, if the SQL instance was "SQLEXPRESS" you would run the following command in an admin-elevated CMD prompt and note the returned SERVICE SID value: SC SHOWSID MSSQL$SQLEXPRESS
- In the Windows directory, create the "ADMT" subfolderfolder and a further subfolder of "Data". For example you would run the following command in an admin-elevated CMD prompt: MD %SystemRoot%\ADMT\Data
- Using the SID retrieved in Step 4, set FULL CONTROL permissions on the %SystemRoot%\ADMT\Data folder. For example, if the SID returned in Step 4 was "S-1-5-80-3880006512-4290199581-3569869737-363123133" you would run the following command in an admin-elevated CMD prompt: ICACLS %systemroot%\ADMT\Data /grant *S-1-5-80-3880006512-4290199581-3569869737-363123133:F
- Install ADMT 3.2 on the DC while selecting the local SQL Express 2008 instance.
