Issue with migrating 'WI' using 'TFS migration tool' when trying migrate from '2013 to 2013'

description

Hi ,

Our final destination is to migrate projects from TFS-2010 to TFS-2013, for testing and familiarizing the migration tool we trying to migrate project between within the 2013 server and between two environment of 2013, we don't have any issues with migrating source code, we done it successfully, but when we try to migrate 'WI' within same server and also tried to between two server we are getting two different errors and unable to migrate 'WI' in any scenario, log files attached for the same. Log file 'error-1' is the errors generated while trying migrate 'wI' within the same server and 'error-2' is the errors generated while trying migrate 'wI' between two server, Need ur guidelines to over come these issues.

Hi
Migrating Work items is nit as easy as Source code because it need to have the same work item types in your old and new server and also the fields in the work item types must be identical in the 2 servers.
otherwise you need to edit the field configuration file to map where will the old work item types to new work item types and also the fields.
