Migrate from Offsite WSS 3 to onsite MOSS 2007

  Asked By: Madeline    Date: Jul 08    Category: MOSS    Views: 1099

I just began working for a company and have been quickly thrown into
their mix of sharepoint everything. One of the things that my boss
wanted me to look into was how to take a hosted sharepoint collection
and set it up here.

To be more precise: Currently the company I work for, has an outside
company hosting all there sharepoint activity in WSS 3.0. My boss,
just bought several new servers and MOSS 2007. He believes that the
advanced administration and capabilities are worth it and he wants to
host the new sharepoint onsite, rather than paying to have it hosted
off site.

I was just wondering what would be the best way to go about getting
all of the data from this company and then uploading it here into
MOSS. Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

Seeing as it is WSS V3 content, I would only be concerned with migrating
the site collection info.

I would either 1) stsadm.exe -o backup -url <url> c:\backup.bak, for
each site collection if there are only a few. You can then restore these
on your new MOSS farm


2) You could migrate  the content databases over to the new farm, attach
them to a Web Application, and the site collections will populate
automatically, assuming the managed path exists (it will if both were
installed using defaults)
