Migration from Standalone to Complete

  Asked By: Madison    Date: Oct 11    Category: MOSS    Views: 816

I have setup MOSS 2007 on Microsoft Virtual Server 2005. It's a
Standalone setup with MS SQL 2005 Express. Can anyone give me any ideas
on migrating the whole setup/sites and everything that I have created on
the above setup to the Complete setup where I should have SQL 2000 on a
separate server as MOSS.

I don't want to create everything from scratch e.g. the sites and
everything that has been created so far. If there is a way to migrate
instead doing it all over again pls let me know.

The thing is I have done a BASIC installation of MOSS 2007 and it
installs SQL 2005. Now I am doing an ADVANCED setup. But when I browse
to the SQL Server Configuration Manager on the virtual server where MOSS
is installed there are no databases. Just SQL Server Services, SQL
Server 2005 Networking Configuration and SQL Native Client

Is the problem that you can't restore a SQL Server 2005 Express backup to SQL
Server 2000? If so, maybe someone else will know how to overcome that issue.

Personally, I don't think that's at all possible - the physical
database structure is different and to my knowledge Microsoft doesn't
support restoring 2005 backups on 2000 unless you have a third party
