Hello Experts,

Hope all is well. I was wondering what are steps required for the following?

1) Moving an entire MOSS2007 setup from a physical server to VMWAre (Stand alone set up)
2) I was told VMWARE can use only 4 core on a server. How to check if my present config is using how many core or if there is a test i can run
3) Currently i use Win server 2003. How to move to 2008 and groud work neccessary to move MOSS
4) Currently using Visual studio 2005 will it affect moss to move it to visual studio 2008


Thanks!!

Since you are wanting to upgrade Windows Server in the process, I would personally recommend creating a new SharePoint server from scratch and the migrate the content databases from your existing one over.

In order to install SP2007 on Windows 2008 R2, you'll need to get a copy of the installer with SP2 included or slipstream the updates into the installer - here is how to slipstream the updates into the installer - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc261890(office.12).aspx

On Windows 2008 R2, you will need to enable the follow roles: Application Server, IIS Server, .NET Framework 3.5.1, Windows Process Activation Service

Sorry for the late response. Can you please tell me how to do the following things.

Option 1: Insatll vmware on present server with 2008 server R2 and move Moss2007 to vmware.

option 2: Install vmware on present server with 2008 and install SharePoint 2010 server and migrate 2007 to 2010(which is inside the vmware)

Thank you!
