While upgrading PeopleTools, one of the steps you have to go through is running this PTIBUpgrade Data Mover script.  It took me a bit to figure out what the values are for the script.
This ITToolbox Thread helped a little bit.
There are 3 values that you have to change in this script.  These are the values that I used:

Virtual Moving Day!
