Migrating pptp entries from w2k3 to w2k8 R2

I was using terminals on w2k3 x86 server, and recently migrated to w2k8 R2 x64 machine.
After .conf file copy, connections like rdp work fine on new machine


I also managed to transfer all pptp VPN phonebook entries from w2k3 server to w2k8.

(copied from old machine  C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Connections\Pbk\rasphone.pbk to new machine c:\windows\system32\ras\rasphone.pbk)From windows, these copied entries work fine to connect.

However, the terminals program doesn't work with these entries:
-Connection attempts result in cannotfindphonebookentry
-When editing a VPN entry in terminals, selecting a phonebook entry, this phonebook is also empty

any hints welcome
Thanks in advance
