Content Database migration from WSS v2 to WSS v3

  Asked By: Jay    Date: Sep 27    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1111

I'm trying to test the "Content Database" migration from
WSS v2 to WSS v3.
* I have executed the "prescan" on the Content Database in WSS v2
(log file looks fine)
* Backed up the database in WSS v2
* Restored database in WSS v3

Now I have created a "New web application" and have point it to the
Content Database that I copied from WSSv2 to WSS v3.
Every time I try to load the site I receive the following:
"The server tag is not well formed" along with complaining about the
I have gotten to load the site successfully by going into the "Site
Settings" and clicking on "Reset to site definition"
I'm assuming that I received the error above because the template that
was used for the creation of the site in WSS v2 was customized.
That is fine.
My question now is what can I do to avoid going into over 3000 sites
manually in WSS v3 that belong in the Content Database and changing the
site definition manually for each one.
Your thoughts are appreciatted as always.
