Standalone WSS installation to Small Farm

  Asked By: Dominique    Date: Jun 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 745

I have read in the installation documentation that there is no direct
upgrade from a stand-alone installation of WSS to a farm, but this is
what I've been asked to do.

Are there ways of doing this other than uninstalling and reinstalling?

I would probably save a copy of each content database. Uninstall WSS,
reinstall WSS, and add the content database(s) back to their respective
Web Applications. I think that backup/restore or export/import could be
used equally as well.

Backup/restore should also work, but export/import will reset lose the
security settings and revert to default security.
