I recently worked on a project to migrate from Project Server 2003 to Project Server 2010. While running the P12 migration tool the error below was thrown in the command prompt window:

PWA Migration: Setup views to Project Server 2003 – Failed

The Log file details for the error were as follows:

Err1 = 37000 Err2 = [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Drive][SQL Server] could not find server ‘server name’ in sys.servers. Verify that the correct server name was specified. If necessary, execute the sp_addlinkedserver to add the server.

Migration finished with error return code 80004005.

Running the –verify switch completed successfully but running the actual migration failed. 

This is due to using an FQDN or DNS Alias name for the SQL Server in the P12 configuration file rather than the actual short name for the SQL Server. After updating the configuration file “Project2007SQLServer” value the migration ran successfully.
