MOSS 2007 to MOSS 2007 migration - layout coming out

  Asked By: Mohini    Date: Apr 10    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1454

I am doing my first MOSS migration. It is from MOSS 2007 on a single
server to MOSS 2007 on two servers (one is a db server on a different

I copied the databases over and attached them on the new SQL server. I
created a new web application and added the old content database.

The problem is that the layout has gone haywire on me. The navigation
that is supposed to be on the side looks to be at the top of the page.
Very odd. Any ideas on why this could be and how to fix it?

Is the page unghosted? CSS styles did not remain consistent from v2 to

Except this is 2007 to 2007 - no 2003 involved .

Can't you just add a new server to the existing farm, or is migration
standard procedure when changing db servers?

Were these sites based off of a custom site
definition? If so, these would need to be moved over
to the new environment as well.

They might have been. They swear they haven't done anything to
customize the interface, though. Is there any way to tell for sure?
Is there any harm copying the 1033 directory over to the new server
and replacing the newly installed one?

If you look under the 1033/TEMPLATES folder, you should see them. Compare the
folder listing to your new farm and see if there are any differences.

The other thing you could do is to go to the Site Settings page and try to
restore to default site definition. That might fix the layout  as well.

I will check that out tomorrow morning. If that isn't it, I
will try the default site definition too!

No, I can't just add a new server to the
existing farm because the database server is on the same server as
the application server. That is why I am moving the databases over to
the new database. Of course, I am assuming you can't just add to the
farm since the main objective is to move the databases and move to n-
tier. If I am wrong, I am happy to hear it.
