Migrate your Project Server 2003 data by using the VME
Applies to: Project Server 2010
Topic Last Modified: 2011-01-14
To migrate from Microsoft Office Project Server 2003 to Microsoft Project Server 2010, first you must migrate your data to Office Project Server 2007 format. If you do not have Office Project Server 2007 readily available, you can choose to use the virtual migration environment (VME) to migrate your data to Office Project Server 2007 format. The VME is a fully configured Office Project Server 2007 Service Pack 2 (SP2) environment that is packaged as a Hyper-V image. The VME should be run as a stand-alone environment for the sole purpose of migrating Microsoft Office Project Server 2003 data to the Office Project Server 2007 data format (it does not have to be connected to the network).
Do not use the VME for production use. It is intended to be used only as a pass-through environment to migrate your Project Server 2003 data to Office Project Server 2007.
The VME image contains the following:
Office Project Server 2007 with SP2 with the October 2009 Cumulative Update
Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 with Service Pack 2 (SP2) with the October 2009 Cumulative Update
Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 with Service Pack 2 (SP2) with the October 2009 Cumulative Update
Microsoft Office Project Professional 2007 with Service Pack 2 with the Migration Tool installed.
SQL scripts that were developed to find potential upgrade issues
Windows Server 2008 R2
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 with Service Pack 3 and Cumulative Update 17
See the Virtual Migration Environment (VME) home page in the Microsoft Download Center to download the VME virtual machine image and the VME guide. For detailed documentation about using the Project Server VME, see Virtual migration environment (VME) guide for Project Server 2010.
