Upgrading Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 to Windows SharePoint Services 3.0

Recently, I did a trial upgrade of a Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 content database from a Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 instance to a Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 instance as part of migrating Team Foundation Server 2005 to Team Foundation Server 2010. I would like to share my personal experience in this blog entry.

Assumptions:

1. You have a Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 instance either as part of Team Foundation Server 2005 or Team Foundation Server 2008 on a server called ‘oldserver’. ‘oldserver’ is your migration source.
2. You have a Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 instance either as part of Team Foundation Server 2010 on a server called ‘newserver’. ‘newserver’ is your migration destination.

Steps to be performed on the ‘oldserver’

Step 1:

Download SharePoint Products and Technologies Utility: Upgrade Pre-scan Tool (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?DisplayLang=en&id=22806).

Step 2:

At the command prompt, type:

prescan.exe /all

Step 3:

Use the SQL Server Management Studio to perform a full backup of the Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 content database.

Step 4:

Copy the Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 content database to the ‘newserver’.

Steps to be performed on the ‘newserver’

Step 1:

Use the SQL Server Management Studio to perform a restore of the Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 content database.

Step 2:

At the command prompt, type:

cd C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\BIN

Step 3:

At the command prompt, type:

stsadm -o addcontentdb -url http://tfs -databasename STS_WBTFS_1 -databaseserver tfs

Step 4:

At the command prompt, type:

stsadm -o upgrade -inplace -url http://tfs

or altertivately,

stsadm -o upgrade -forceupgrade -inplace -url http://tfs

Configuration Steps to be performed on the ‘newserver’
