    I have not had any success migration applications/users from my old iMac to my new iMac.  Both iMacs are running the latest version of OS X 10.9 with all patches applied.  I have tried it over my wireless network, via ethernet cable connected between the two iMacs, and with both iMac connected via ethernet to my network.  It starts fine but after 17 hours it seems stuck with 1 HR 15min ( or 25 minutes etc) remaining.  I’ve been trying this for since Sunday, restarting the process after 24 hours.  My only option at this point is to try using a Time Machine backup.  Is this normal for migration assistant?

    Ended up doing the migration using my Time Machine backup.  It too about two hours to complete.
