I'm trying to pull a number of discussion boards from a WSS 3.0 site to a Sharepoint 2010 Enterprise site. I'm still something of a beginner are Sharepoint, so I'm not real sure how to do this, if it can be done at all. Anyone have any suggestions on how to get this done, or some utilities that can handle it?

You could go a couple of routes.  First, you could attach the content database of the 2007 sites and attach it to your 2010 farm.  It will provide you with the Visual Upgrade options.

Secondly, you could use third-party migration software.  There are a variety of products from companies like AvePoint, Quest, and Metalogix.

Here is the TechNet article on how to do the database upgrade if you want to go that route: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263299.aspx

Unfortunately, the Database attach technique has been ruled out for this situation. The WSS site is FUBAR already, so we're building much of it back up from scratch. Then there's the limitations for database upgrade. WSS 3.0 will only upgrade to Sharepoint Foundation, not 2010. I'll look at some migration tools to see if any will fit the situation.

Quest's product doesn't fully support a 2007-2010 migration yet it looks like. Metalogix's solution is pretty compact and seems to work well, but we have to buy it to get full usage. Thanks for the help.
