Hi,

Currently we have a sharepoint service 2.0 on a Windows server SBS2003 and i need to migrate it to MOSS2007...

Is it possible to upgrade direct from sharepoint service 2.0 to moss2007

Thank You

There is no way to upgrade even the standard (not SBS 2003) version of WSS 2.0 directly to MOSS 2007.

Instead you need to first upgrade it to WSS 3.0 and only then upgrade that WSS 3.0 to MOSS 2007.

---------------

With the SBS 2003 version of WSS 2.0 there is an added complication.

The only way to preserve the functions (companyweb; fax support etc.) that are only in the SBS 2003 version of WSS 2.0 is to follow the SBS 2003 KB article for upgrading the (SBS 2003) WSS 2.0 to WSS 3.0 while preserving the existing (SBS 2003) WSS 2.0. If you do that then you still have the additional SBS-only WSS functionality in the preserved WSS 2.0.

If you ignore this KB article and do a standard upgrade to WSS 3.0 from WSS 2.0 you will have a completely standard version of WSS 3.0 which provides none of the additional functionality that your earlier SBS 2003 version of WSS 2.0 provided.

You can however, if you do this, upgrade that copy of WSS 3.0 (which is 100% standard) to MOSS 2007.

I am uncertain (I think it unlikely) if you can do this with an SBS 2003 server where you have both the old SBS 2003 version of WSS 2.0 and the new WSS 3.0 running. I suggest you ask about that in a SBS 2003 forum or if there isn't one in the SBS 2003 newsgroup microsoft.public.windows.server.sbs.

(Of course the footprint of MOSS 2007 make make running it on an SBS 2003 inappropriate.)
