WSUS migration of upgrades from 2 to 3 (different servers)

Last Modified: 2013-12-04
We have a wsus 2 (sp1) on win2k server. Support is nearly gone (by april 2009), so we setup wsus 3 sp1 on a second server and we would like to migrate the updates to the new machine.
Microsoft and other online resources I found are not describing this procedure as far as I can see, maybe someone of you can provide a link.
Old database was on MSDE 2000, the new server uses the windows internal database.

Waht I have tried already was to use the old one as synchronization source. This fails because MS does not support to sync from 2 to 3.
