SBS 2011 migration preparation tool must be member Domain Admins, Enterprise Admins, or Schema Admins error

When running the Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard Migration Preparation Tool, keeps coming with the following popup error:

To prepare the source server for migration, you must be a member of all of the following security groups: Enterprise Admins, Schema Admins, and Domain Admins. For additional information, see the article at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=190413

But despite the account is member of all the given security groups, it won’t continue and keeps giving this message.

Solution: The message will also keeps popping up when one of the three groups is configured as the primary group. Change the primary group via Active directory users and computers to Domain Users.

    Thanks for this as I could not figure out for the life of me why it was not working but the tech before me set Enterprise admins as the default and removed Domain Users.
