Moving a WSS 3.0 Site to MOSS

  Asked By: Reed    Date: Dec 12    Category: MOSS    Views: 1719

What are the options for moving WSS 3.0 site collections to MOSS? I'm
assuming that a backup / restore will just report that you're trying to
cross versions and fail. Will export / import work? What options are
there and what do you need to watch out for?

stsadm.exe -o backup  -url http://app/path/sitecollection -filename

This should backup fine from Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, and
restore fine to SharePoint Server 2007. If you have active users, you
might want to lock the site  collection from Central Admin before backing
it up.

Import/export stinks for backup and restores.
