WSUS migration from Windows server 2003 to Windows server 2008 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have followed below steps :

    1. Install WSUS on new server with local express database
    2. During configuration wizard choose "Synchronize from another WSUS server…", enter the name of the existing WSUS instance we are migrating from, and then choose the replica option.
    3. Complete the configuration wizard
    4. Wait for initial synchronisation to complete.
    5. Change the new server from a replica to standalone.
    6. Download the WSUS API Samples and Tools from Microsoft and install it on each of the servers.
    7. On the old server open a command prompt and navigate to the C:\Program Files\Update Services 3.0 API Samples and Tools\WsusMigrate\WsusMigrationExport folder.
    8. Run "wsusmigrationexport.exe settings.xml" to export the settings.

    But at this step we are facing below error :

    WsusMigrationExport failed with the below exception!
