    I've got a new WSUS3 box. I migrated the target groups and the updates from
    the old server to the new server. The only issue I have is the approvals. I
    get this error when trying to run wsusmigrationimport.
    C:\Program Files\Update Services 3.0 API Samples and
    ..exe d:\wsusbackup\wsus-20070523.xml Approvals None
    WsusMigration failed with the below exception!
    System.FormatException: Index (zero based) must be greater than or equal to
    zero and less than the size of the

    Anyone run across this problem when trying to import approvals? -d

    Looks like I found the answer to my own question. I'm sure a lot of you out
    there may be trying the same thing.
    Importing from a WSUS 2.0 server to a WSUS 3.0 server (or from a WSUS 3.0
    server to a WSUS 2.0 server) is not supported.

    it's on this page about 3/4 the way down.
    Sorry for the friv post. Disappointed. Who'd a though someone would want to
    build a fresh server and move all the updates and approvals over. -d

  3. We do support migrating the approvals from WSUS 2.0 server to WSUS 3.0
    server. Can you please send us the xml file?

    Thanks, Siva

    That first import works great. The target groups are imported without issue,
    it's the approvals that's not working. The settings are the same on both
    boxes. I've followed the directions from the readme verbatim. I'm stuck.
