VSSConverter is not importing VSS History RRS feed

  • Question

  • I converted a VSS 2005 repository over to TFS 2008SP1 today.  There were no errors in the analysis and migration reports.  However, only tip versions imported into to TFS.  No history was brought over.

    I turned on verbose logging and the analysis phase logs show that it is seeing the history.  However, the migration process did not import that.

    The date of VSSConverter.exe is 7/30/2008 2:32pm and the file version is 9.0.30729.1 which appear to be correct.

    Any help would be appreciated greatly!

  •   Remember that TFS loses shared file histories so only move projects within TFS NOT in VSS if you are rearranging file/project structure – otherwise you WILL lose your history.
