SideBySide upgrade of Sharepoint 2003 to MOSS 2007

  Asked By: Tameka    Date: Apr 11    Category: MOSS    Views: 1868

Please help me to solve my problem regarding Sharepoint Upgradation
from 2.0 to MOSS 2007.
I have a "sharepoint2003? server on which Sharepoint 2003 has installed
and another "sharepoint2007? server on which MOSS 2007 and Sharepoint
2003 both installed.
My current production server is "sharepoint2003? it has two important
sites which needs to migrate to "sharepoint2007? on MOSS 2007.

Now what I did, took the backup of the two sites from "sharepoint2003?
server and restore it on "sharepoint2007? server's sharepoint 2003. so
that i have both the "sharepoint 2003 " and "MOSS2007? on the same
server i.e "sharepoint2007?.
I have the stand alone installation of MOSS 2007 on "sharepoint2007?
Now i want to upgrade my sharepoint 2003 sites to MOSS2007, please help
me to rectify this.

Use the upgrade/migration options in Central Administration to achieve
your desired outcome. You can migrate/upgrade at the site collection
level in Central Administration.

I went through Sharepoint 3.0 Central Administration -> Operations
Tab -> Upgrade/Migrations. The options which i found as follows:
1) Microsoft Content Management Server migration
2) Enable Enterprise Features
3) Enable features on existing sites
4) Convert license type

But i couldn't get any options for upgrading wss 2.0 sites to wss 3.0

For some reason, I thought both deployments were on the same servers.
If not, then you can do a content database migration, as you mention in
your post. But since that isn't working, I'm not able to help you
troubleshoot it via email. I would suggest that you contact PSS. It
could be any number of things.
