MOSS 2007 to MOSS2010
Posted on 2012-03-24
I know there is little information and expertise on the share Point, but i have this question to confirm my planning,
I have MOSS 2007 environment with SP1. I am planning migration to SharePoint 2010 on 64 bit harware. So it is not going to be in place upgrade. It is migration but i am going to keep same SQL server as it is already 64 bit and I am planning database attach approach. I will install new farm on new hardware with sharepoint 2010, mirror the environment and attach the content database to the new environment. Again i don't have option for i place upgrade.
environment is already very poorly and wrongly configured. my question is whether I have to apply SP2 for migration or not. I know that I need to run stadm -pre upgrade check to check the environment values but I am hesitant to apply SP2 just to run stadm -pre upgrade check. I can use some other tool to that.
So do i have to apply SP2 as a pre requisite and why ?
my thinking is to do migration touching the current environment as little as possible including underlying OS.
Thanks for all
