I've been evaluating EVS and have successfully installed it and accessed it 
with the command line client and a few test files which works fine.  I am 
now trying to migrate a fairly large existing repository using the Migrate 
utility but this has failed.

I pointed it at the legacy CVSNT 2.5.03 repository and the new EVS 
repository and it began processing but after an hour or so it failed.  I 
didn't write down the message that was shown (not a popup, just the wizard 
ending), but was something related to a problem retrieving tags/revisions.

Are there any log files generated that could help me identify the problem? 
This repository does have a lot of tags and branches so I was expecting 
there might be problems here.  I'm running EVS & SQL server express on a Win 
2k3 box and the Migrate client from an XP SP3 box.

Any suggestions welcome.
