Hello,

I would like to move a SharePoint site running on WSS 3.0 with MS SQL 2005 to a new server on Windows Server 2008 running SharePoint Server 2010 with SQL 2008

Any ideal about the steps? I would like to avoid to have to re-install WSS - > Upgrade 2007 - > SharePoint Portal

So far I tried to detach the WSS 3.0 site content db and reattach on the new hardware than change the content db to the old WSS 3.0 site

Tried also to create a new web apps and restore the dat file using stsadmin

Thanks a lot

The db attach will work for you.  Are you stating it isn't?  You need to create your web app in 2010, don't use the same db name as the wss, and don't create a site collection.  Then copy your db/log to the sql 2008 box.  Then in Central Admin, attach the db to the 2010 web app.  This will kick off the upgrade.

Hi thanks for your help.

When I link the WSS db on the new app i'm getting :

This content database requires upgrade and could not be attached in this operation. Use either the [stsadm -o addcontentdb] command or [Mount-SPContentDatabase] cmdlet instead.

Then when I run STSADM -o addcontentdb -databasename -url it's telling cannot upgrade object whose build version 12.0.0.6227 is too old.

Upgrade require 12.0.0.6421 or higher

Ah yes.  You need to be on at least SP2 in WSS 3 before upgrading.  Sorry forgot to mention.
