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

When running the Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard Migration Preparation Tool, keeps coming with the following 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
I double checked the admin account is a member of these groups and it was, the solution turned out to be because the account was configured to use one of these groups as its primary group, I changed this in AD to domain users and the wizard ran without any problems at all.
