does anyone know what is the proper procedure for upgrading the WSS 3.0 Sharepoint to the SharePoint 2010 Enterprise?
Here's my situation:
1) (currently) WSS 3.0 WFE is on VMware Server; SQL Database is located on a physical Server 2008 Windows/SQL
migrating WSS 3.0 to Enterprise Sharepoint 2010 to...
2) Installing Windows 2008R2 Server for SharePoint 2010 WFE on a VMware Server
3) SQL 2008 database for SharePoint 2010 will be on a physical box with Windows 2008R2
4) Moving WSS3.0 DB to SQL 2008 box (new)
I read about detaching the DB and reattaching but cannot do that as the WSS 3.0 is in production. Is it possible to do a back up and restore to new SQL? what are other recommendation>
