Hello All,

We have two environments, one is SPS 2003 and the new one which is MOSS 07 Ent Ed environment.

We have a lot of WSS sites in SPS 2003, from which we have two sites which we want moved ot the new server farm of MOSS 07, can anyone please tell me how to do that.

Thanks

Probably the simplest way to do this is to isolate the two site collections you want to migrate into their own database. You can do this using stsadm.exe but if you need more info I'll provide it.

Once you have the sites in their own database you can then PRESCAN the database and assuming no errors the next thing to do is to backup the database and restore it to the MOSS farm sql server. Onc you have it here you can use a contentdbattach process in stsadm or from the central admin > application management > content database

This process will upgrade the database and sites within it to MOSS.

Hope that helps

Cant the backup from SPS 2003/WSS 2 environment of that site collection and a restore to MOSS 07 environment will work

I knew that DB Attach would be possible but thing is that DB Attach would upgrade all the sites in the other farm whcih we dont want, we only want specifically two sites in that one Site Collection.

Thanks.

you cannot take a previous version backup and restore into MOSS.

This is the reason why I said you should split the sites into two databases, one database containing the site not to be upgraded and one containing the sites for upgrading. This way you only upgrade the sites you choose to.

you can split the sites into separate databases using stsadm.exe and the backup/restore options
