Win 2003

  Asked By: Wayne    Date: Sep 13    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 634

This may have already been covered, but has anyone upgraded from win
2000 to win 2003 on a sharepoint portal server? Does Sharepoint still
work? The reason I ask is because the upgrade is telling me shaperpoint
is in compatible with 2003.

Sharepoint Portla Server 2001 wil not work on Windows 2003 !

Only Sharepoint V2/2003 will work with Windows Server 2003 !

You need the latest SP in order to make it work I believe. I was playing
with it on a w2k3 server and wasn't able to install and run the services
until I upgraded it and then the services started. Im playing with the SPS
beta2 right now and its really nice (considering I don't do vb)

I think the question evolves into...

Given: you have sharepoint 2001 on a win2k server
Given: you cannot run v2 on win2k
Given: you cannot run v1 on win2k3

So..... what's the upgrade process?

I believe it will be covered much more fully in the release. I myself
have only tried a new install. I'm guessing there will be some sort of
import process, but I plan on only doing a brand new install and
manually migrating things over.

I assume you will have to do a leapfrog upgrade.

So you have had Sharepoint v1, sp2 running on a win2k box then did a
Win2003 upgrade and SPS v1 works?

So I get the drift that because I just sharepoint v1 I'm not going to
get a free upgrade from microsnot am i?

Microsoft partners (3rd party) will provide
amigration utility for automatic migration of data
from V1 to V2, and it will be avaiable soon. This was
confirmed by one of the MS employees i talked to.

You have to have bought Software Assurance (or Upgrade Assurance,
whatever it's called). We bought it in order to get 2yrs of updates,
service packs, etc. We did this for Windows Server, SQL Server,
Sharepoint, Office, Project and Visio.

I don't think there's a grace period.

That's a BS route for Microsoft to take. This utility should be free.
