Replace file server

  Asked By: Jordan    Date: Mar 22    Category: MOSS    Views: 1161

I have been given the assignment of moving forward and implementing
sharepoint. Presently we are using FREE WSS 3.0 but are looking to move to
Sharepoint 2010 and jump over MOSS.

First question I have - is this a good idea or do I need to migrate
everything to MOSS and Sharepoint Serer 2007 first.

The other question or concern that I have is that my boss would like to
replace our entire Shared file server structure with Sharepoint. I am not
under the impression that this was the purpose of sharepoint. Opinions are

We are running a mixed bag of office from Office 97 - 2007 with the majority
of users on Office 2003. There is no option at all of moving to all users to
office 2010 let alone 2007.

It is very possible to upgrade from WSS 3.0 to SharePoint Foundations 2010
and then upgrade that to SharePoint server  2010. In fact, that is the way I
would suggest you should do it.

For your other question, the answer is I've seen a lot of people try to do
this, but in general its not a good idea. SharePoint may fulfill the role
that your Shared file  server structure used to do going forward. That
doesn't mean that its necessarily a good idea to migrate all the existing
stuff into SharePoint and get rid of the old servers. Just because you can
doesn't mean you should.
