Sharepoint Services 2.0 not finding content
Posted on 2014-10-24
We have a really old Server 2003 box, with WSS 2.0, which is being upgraded / migrated to Server 2008R2.
In prep for the move to Sharepoint 2010, WSS 2.0 was service packed to SP2 and then an in-place upgrade was done to Sharepoint Portal Server 2003, as a step towards Sharepoint 2010.
Somewhere in the mix, the system lost track of the content. SPS2003 has been uninstalled and the files from backup have been restored to what they were before SPS2003.
You would think that fixes the problem, but we now have a page which says
"Server Application Unavailable
The web application you are attempting to access on this web server is currently unavailable. Please hit the "Refresh" button in your web browser to retry your request.
Administrator Note: An error message detailing the cause of this specific request failure can be found in the application event log of the web server. Please review this log entry to discover what caused this error to occur.
Can anyone guide us as to reconnecting the WSS 2.0 back to the DB content ?
Also, is there a better way to migrate to Sharepoint 2010 ?
