I'm a newbie to the forum and a relative newbie to the Mac world, I could use some advice. My question, I need to transfer user data, and any applications that I can, from an older Mac Pro to a new Mac Pro. The old one is running 10.4.1 and the new one is 10.6. The Migration Assistant looked like it would do exactly that, so I fired it up on both machines using an ethernet cable straight machine to machine, with no hub. Both Macs got a self-assigned IP address on the same network, and Assistant appeared to be transferring fine, there's about 25 gig of data and the counter showed 57 minutes. Things went fine until the timer showed "less than a minute". Three times in a row it has failed at this point saying that there may be something wrong with my network, the other computer isn't responding. All I can do is reboot. Any idea why that might have happened? Is there a log I can look at to see the exact error? Thanks for a great forum and for your time.
