Migration Wizard

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.

Use thisTo do this
Management Database PageType the name of the server on which the Configuration database resides.

Note  When specifying the server name, use <ServerName> only. If you used the default BizTalk Server 2000 or BizTalk Server 2002 database name, type InterchangeBTM as the database name.

Management Database PageType the name of the Configuration database that contains the messages.
Receive Functions PageSelect the receive functions that you want to migrate. Click the right arrow (>) to add them to the Receive Functions to Migrate list. Click the left arrow (<) to remove them from the list.

Note  If you have a long list of receive locations, you can use the filter to search for a particular receive location. For example, typing R* as the filter and clicking Apply lists all the receive functions that begin with the letter R.

Port Groups PageSelect the port groups that you want to migrate. Click the right arrow (>) to add them to the Port Groups to Migrate list. Click the left arrow (<) to remove them from the list.

Note  If you have a long list of port groups, you can use the filter to search for a particular port group. For example, typing R* as the filter and clicking Apply lists all the port groups that begin with the letter R.

Ports PageSelect the ports that you want to migrate. Click the right arrow (>) to add them to the Ports to Migrate list. Click the left arrow (<) to remove them from the list.

Note  If you have a long list of ports, you can use the filter to search for a particular port. For example, typing R* as the filter and clicking Apply lists all the port groups that begin with the letter R.

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 PageInforms you that the migration completed with error. For details, see the migration.log file located in the <Server>:\temp\BizTalkMigration40 folder.
