Hi,

I'm trying to migrate our eScrum work items from a TFS 2005 SP1 server to a TFS 2008 server. eScrum is installed on both TFS servers.

The application says "Synchronization engine has crashed" and the Event tables contains the exception below.

Why is the migration tool trying to rename a field?

Thanks,

Ian Fraser
