I have a WSS 3.0 2003 R2 server using the internal database that I need to migrate to 2013 Foundation with 2012 R2 as teh OS and 2012 SQL Express as the database back end. I have found some of the MS documentation on the process quite confusing. I'm looking for a straight forward method.
I realize I will need to go to 2010 Foundation first then to 2013. I have three servers setup.
Server 1 is my WSS 3 / W2k3 server (Active)
Server 2 is my temp 2010 Foundation with 2k8 R2 and SQL 2k8 R2 Express all 64-bit
Server 3 is my final 2013 Foundation with 2012 R2 and SQL 2012 Express
I have tried teh detach/reattach method but it keeps failing on the database upgrade due to orphaned sites. When I run the STSADM utility looking to repair the orphaned sites it tells me I have zero orphaned files.
i have also tried teh backup and restore method through SQL with no luck.
Does anyone have a more clear method to achieve this? There has to be something I'm missing.
So I have seen this before when there was already a content database with a root site collection\ and easy way to correct this is to delete the content DB of the 2010 server then attach the database from
