Migrate WSS 3.0 to Sharepoint Server 2010
Posted on 2011-02-13
I am migrating all of our current environment to a virtualised environment.
I need to move our Sharepoint WSS 3.0 content to the new Sharepoint Server 2010 server.
WSS 3.0 is running on Server 2003 32bit.
It is using SQL 2005 32bit on Server 2003 32bit,
Sharepoint Server 2010 is running on Server 2008 R2 64bit.
It is using SQL 2008 R2 64bit on Server 2008 R2 64bit.
All resources I have found thus far dance around the topic without being specific on what to do. I am starting to think it will be quicker to move content manually.
WSS 3.0 is mainly just files and folders. I can move these via "open in windows explorer view", but mail point is to make sure I retain permissions.
