HP ALM - Performance Center 11.52 Migration Tool (Migrating from PC 9.52 to PC 11.52) Errors

Hi Folks, we are attemptng a migration of an old instance of PC 9.52 to PC 11.52


we have conducted the following activities:

Copied the MI_LRDB onto the target SQL Database server SQL 2008 and locally mapped the LRFS data directory.

When working through the migration tool & testing each step a successful connection is obtained. 

However when checking the Migration validation the following errors are displayed:

* Lab Management Connection - Unable to connect to QC. Connecting to ALM Platform Failed. Error: Specified cast is not valid.

* Communication Security Passphrase - Passphrase is not valid. \nConnecting to ALM Platform failed. \nGoback and retype passphrase.

In regards to the passphrase I have copied the passphrase directly from the 11.52 database so it is in fact correct.

As a test, I proceeded with a test migration regardless of the errors and was able to migrated a sample project from PC 9.52 to 11.52 however the project was blank with no scripts or test run history migrating. The error in the migration report was as follows:

"Project migration interrupted: Specified cast is not valid.; Project migration is not completed"

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
