Our customers existing infrastructure:-
SBS 2003 domain. Companyweb on the DC was side-migrated to WSS 3.0 a long time ago.
Customer is now in the process of migrating to a new Server 2012 infrastructure.
I have various Hyper-V guests for testing purposes, and I need to move Companyweb away from WSS 3.0 and into SharePoint Foundation 2010.
The existing Companyweb database is slightly over 6GB In size, so here's what I have done so far:-
New Server 2012, joined to domain. Installed SharePoint Foundation 2010 in standalone mode (this installed SQL Express 2008 with a 4GB limit). Upgraded to SQL Express 2008 R2 to overcome 4GB limit. SharePoint still works at this point. (Created a checkpoint of the VHD at this point).
On SBS 2003, changed STS_tucsrv_1 database to read only, then took a backup.
On Server 2012, restored STS_tucsrv_1 into WSS_Content database.
From there on in, SharePoint no longer works. When I browse to http://share
(share being the name of the test server) I get an error in IE which reads:-
Server error: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink?LinkID=177673
