Migration to MOSS

  Asked By: Akhila    Date: Dec 15    Category: MOSS    Views: 559

Our current production SharePoint 2003 Portal is configured as a small farm,
SQL Server and Web Server. We are preparing to migrate to MOSS and will be
using new servers. We will be doing a database migration even though it will
be complex and require a nuber of additional manual steps. This will allow
us to fully test and require the least amount of down time. We are thinking
of using three servers: SQL 2005, Web Server, and Index/SSP server. Is this

please clarify your migration  strategy. It seems to me that you
all plan to run the MOSS 2007 implementation in conjunction with your
SPS 2003 implementation. Two, I am assuming that your implementation
of SPS 2003 was able to handle your customer base, i refer to users as
customers. So, I would recommend that you ensure that you incorporate
room for growth.

Internal Government Organization portal. Their view is that customers are
outside the organization.
The current  2003 portal handles the requirements fine. We are anticipating an
increaase in utilization, web applications, and event handlers for more
processes than the current room scheduling and trouble ticket processing. My
question is will the farm work with a SQL 2005 server, a Index/SSP server, and a
web frontend server. All I have is the Planning and Architecture document from
Microsoft (916 pages).

We are planning on setting up the new servers and soing a database migration
using a backup copy of the production  server. Then we will work through any
issues to identify what will to be fixed before we do the migration  for real.
