Hi Experts,

I currently have two sharepoint farms that I'd like to merge together. one's an internal itnranet that we use for Doc mgmt, BI, and other gadgets. It's a MOSS server.

The other is a WSS 3.0 server that we host off-site and use as a go to DR site.

I'd like to merge these together and host them off of the same platform. Here's my proposed plan:
- add a new webserver to the internal farm
- move my DR site to the farm and host it off of the new server
- move the new server to the DMZ and have it hosted from there
- open ports so the new server can still communicate with the internal platform

anyone got any how to's or best practices on how to accomplish this. Is this method the best way? do i need to add the server to the DMZ or could I open it up internally on specific ports? i've looked around and found some people doing something similar, but have had no joy on best practices yet.

Thanks for the help
