"create or extend web application" link missing

  Asked By: Katlyn    Date: Jan 16    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 7405

I have installed SharePoint using the numerous different accounts as
suggested and now using the Server Farm account I am unable to see the
link on the Central Administration, Application Management that should
take me to "create or extend web application". I can see this link
using the Setup account but expect I should be able to see it using
the Server Farm account.
In my test environment I am able to see the link using the Server Farm

Import/Export was added to STSADM for the SharePoint 2007 release. In
SharePoint 2003 export of an individual site was done using a program
called SMIGRATE. I don't know for sure, but I doubt you can simply
export it using SMIGRATE and then import it using STSADM.

That is not possible. The upgrade tools are the only
way to move content from SPS 2003 -> MOSS 2007.

FWIW it is absolutely super-easy to prepare a 2003 content database for
upgrade, drop it in to the 2007 farm, and then export it from there.
That would be my approach

Yeah, that's what I thought.

I've had no luck attempting to upgrade our last SPS2003 server  to MOSS 2007.

Gradual fails.

In-Place fails.

DB Attachment fails.

So I'm not left with a good upgrade method, and MS Support's be sucking as of
late, so I'm looking for ways around things.

3rd party stuff? Several 3rd parties have migration software for this -
e.g. AvePoint, CommVault, Quest, etc.

Best method for upgrade is gradual upgrade and I have done 6 upgradations using
the gradual upgrade method. I don't understand why people have failures with the
upgrade if you follow all the steps properly then you might not have any issues.
