    We're trying to migrate our Windows Server 2003 File Cluster. Installed a
    new 2008 Cluster using the Step-for-Step Guide from Technet. All clear until
    then. Next step would be the migration of the cluster settings using the
    "Migrate a Cluster" Wizard. But we cannot even connect to any of our Windows
    Server 2003 Clusters using the Wizard!! At the time specifing the Source
    Cluster we always run into the following error message "The given key was not
    present in the dictionary".

    What are me doing wrong? Has anybode yet migrated a 2003 Cluster to a 2008

    Can anyone help us, please?!

    Thanks in advance, Michael

  2. Can you ping the other node?

    You should try using the FQDN when specifying the source cluster.

    Try the node names and the cluster name when specifying the source.

    Can you provide any more information?
