"This database is too old" error when trying to attach database from SharePoint Services 3.0 SP3 to SharePoint Foundation 2010
I'm migrating SharePoint Services 3.0 currently on 32 bit architecture to SharePoint Foundation 2010 on 64 bit architecture. I have a new VM running Windows 2008 SP1/SQL Server 2008 R2 and have installed SP Foundation 2010.
My current architecture is Windows 2003 R2 SP 2 and SQL Server 2005 SP4. SharePoint Services is on SP3 (October 2011). I have copied over and attached my current SP Services 3.0 content database and have run test-spcontentdatabase. I get this error:
Category : DatabaseValidation
UpgradeBlocking : False
Message: This database [WSS_Content_Test_2] is too old and cannot be upgraded.
Remedy: Upgrade this database to Windows SharePoint Services Version 3, SP2 or later.
As I mentioned above, I'm already running SharePoint Service 3 SP3. Is this error occurring because I'm trying to move the database from a 32 bit install to a 64 bit install or is it something else?
