Problems converting rt-2.0.15 to rt-3.0.9 using rt-2-to-rt3

I am attempting to convert a database from rt-2-0-15 to rt-3-0-9 using
rt-2-to-rt3-1.23 and getting multiple errors. We are running
mysql-max-4.1.7 under FreeBSD 4.10.

I’m new to RT and haven’t worked with Perl in many years, so feel free
to correct any errors below.

The rt-2.0-to-dumpfile runs fine, but I’m getting errors when I run the
dumpfile-to-rt-3.0 script. I am doing a “make dropdb” and “make
initialize-database” on the RT3 database before every run of
dumpfile-to-rt-3.0.

The first error was in importing users, and seems to have been caused by
"undef" values being sent to SearchBuilder. Around line 222 I found the
following code:

if ($args{'CryptedPassword'} ) {
    $args{'Password'} = $args{'CryptedPassword'};
    delete $args{'CryptedPassword'};
}
elsif ( !$args{'Password'} ) {
    $args{'Password'} = '*NO-PASSWORD*';
}
elsif ( length( $args{'Password'} ) < $RT::MinimumPasswordLength ) {
    return ( 0, $self->loc("Password too short") );
}
else {
    $args{'Password'} = $self->_GeneratePassword($args{'Password'});
}

If CryptedPassword is undefined the first if will fail, setting Password
to “NO-PASSWORD”, but NOT deleting the key for CryptedPassword. I
changed this code to delete the CryptedPassword no matter which branch
is taken, and then to perform the following tests for password length.

if ($args{'CryptedPassword'} ) {
    $args{'Password'} = $args{'CryptedPassword'};
}
elsif ( !$args{'Password'} ) {
    $args{'Password'} = '*NO-PASSWORD*';
}
delete $args{'CryptedPassword'};

This got the user names imported, but now I’m getting the following
errors after creating all the users:

Importing groups
gggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
rrrrrfqF
ailed to create queue for$VAR1 = {
‘LastUpdatedBy’ => undef,
‘Creator’ => undef
};
Couldn’t load principal to grant them AdminKeywordSelects on queue
$VAR1 = {
‘PrincipalType’ => ‘Group’,
‘Role’ => ‘AdminCc’,
‘Name’ => ‘AdminKeywordSelects’
};
Couldn’t load principal to grant them AdminQueue on queue
$VAR1 = {
‘PrincipalType’ => ‘Group’,
‘Role’ => ‘AdminCc’,
‘Name’ => ‘AdminQueue’
};
Couldn’t load principal to grant them CommentOnTicket on queue

I was wondering if anyone else has had similar problems and come up with
a fix or updated rt-2-to-rt3?

Thank you,

I have done some additional debugging on the error I’m currently
getting:

};

Using the Perl debugger, I traced the "$queue_obj->Create( %{$queue} );“
call on line 246 of dumpfile-to-rt-3.0 and found that the problem was
that the db INSERT failed because there was no value supplied for the
"Name” column.

Where should that Name value be coming from?
