Interpreting the Source Control Migration Report

You can view the Source Control Migration Report using a Web browser. The report is generated as an XML file, and the supporting files, such as .XSLT and graphic files, are used to render these files to the user.

Analysis and Migration Report

The report is divided into sections and some sections are divided into subsections. The Critical Error, Error, and Warning sections appear only if there were errors or warnings encountered during migration. Each section of the report is collapsible. You can click the icon in the section head to expand or collapse a section.

Most of the sections and content is the same for both the analysis and the migration report.

The report can contain the sections in the following list. Each of these sections is explained in more detail in this topic.

  • Summary   Summarizes the results of the analysis or migration.

    NoteNote

    The number of actions analyzed versus the number of actions migrated might be different because not all analyzed actions are migrated, for example, the archive, restore, purge and destroy actions.

  • Critical Error   If analysis or migration is interrupted because of a fatal error, this section will be included in the report and provide a description of the error that caused analysis or migration to fail.

  • Error   The converter is not always able to migrate or analyze files and folders or specific versions of files and folders because the Visual SourceSafe database you are migrating is corrupted or there is an unhandled case in the converter. This section lists this kind of data loss errors.

  • Warnings   This section contains information about the loss or modification of information because data in Visual SourceSafe could not be migrated to Team Foundation source control. During analysis, the converter will warn about this potential loss of information. You can choose to take steps to prevent the loss of information, or accept that the information will be lost during migration.

  • User Input   The user input section describes the command-line options provided by the user for the converter.
