Sorry Its from the Step-by-Step Guide for Advanced Group Policy Management  
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb767569.aspx, under a note

Archives cannot be migrated from an AGPM Server or a GPOVault Server running 
Windows Server 2003 to an AGPM Server running Windows Vista.

COuld you run it GPMC on a WIn2k8 member server? thats how i run GPMC now its 
on a Win2k3 member server.
