Hi ,

I have 10 sites in sharepoint 2003 ,created using custom site defination.I have migrated all using gradual migration approach.
Following actions coverd by me during migration

1.) Same layout/custom site defination created in 2007.
2.) Same id assigned in webtemp*.xml that exist in 2003 custom site defination.
3.) Upgradation file has been created and deployed in upgrade\config file .

After upgradation sites are still showing v2 layout and pointing list folders available in custom site defination of 2003.I have gone through the WSS SDK and come to know that if upgradation path is missing this kind of problems comes.

Help me to sort out this problem .

Thanks ,
Sourabh Khatri.

This is said to be caused by being logged in as the wrong user when doing the upgrade.

I had it when I used the server's administrator when doing the upgrade for instance.

If this is the case another sign is that you don't have a recycle Bin in those transfered sites.

It's said that doing a Revert to Template will clear this up. (I can't guarantee that because I no longer have the site I converted wrongly). This is the same revert to template that you normally use in v3 SP products when you want to get rid of changes you have made in v3 to a standard template.

I hope this helps. I apologise for the lack of certainty in this repsonse.

Finally i got the solution . The problem was in upgrade file . In upgrade file Toversion attribute should be same as custom site defintion revision attribute in project element.If it will missmatch migration process will not give any error but still using old v2 defintion.
