You can use the Migration Wizard to migrate items from previous versions of Microsoft® BizTalk® Server to BizTalk Server 2004. The wizard transfers all messaging items created in the BizTalk Server 2000 or BizTalk Server 2002 Messaging Manager to the Configuration database (formerly Management database). Messaging items include document definitions, maps, receive functions, ports, channels, and port groups. You can also maintain these items independently from a new BizTalk Server 2004 installation with supported interoperability between the two systems. The messages you want to migrate reside in a Configuration database on your BizTalk Server 2000 or BizTalk Server 2002 computer.

The Migration Wizard creates a project within your solution that, by default, contains a References and an Artifact folder. The Artifact folder contains all the messaging items that have been migrated. Each time the Migration Wizard runs, it generates a separate project. To migrate additional messaging items, add another project and run the Migration Wizard again.
|Migration Completed with Errors Page||Informs you that the migration completed with error. For details, see the migration.log file located in the <Server>:\temp\BizTalkMigration40 folder.|
