Migrating the CompanyWeb SharePoint site

This chapter covers the migration of data in the CompanyWeb - http://companyweb, a Windows SharePoint Site from SBS 2003 to a site called OldCompanyWeb on SBS 2008.

SBS 2008 ships with Windows SharePoint v3 which is different enough to stop a simple import of data from the Windows SharePoint v2 site that is hosted on SBS 2003. For that reason the recommended approach is to have two sites and to advise the users to utilise the new site going forward, but to retain data in the old site too. Should it be desired, the data and documents can be copied between the sites once the migration is completed.

This chapter walks you through:

  • On the SBS 2003 server
    • Prepare and check CompanyWeb on SBS 2003 for migration
    • Backup the database
    • Copy the files to a removable device or create a network share
  • On the SBS 2008 server
    • Configure the DNS for the migrated site
    • Import the data
    • Create the OldCompanyWeb site
    • Tidy up the site

David,

I am doing a SBS2K3 to SBS2K8 Migration. The client does not want to migrate Sharepoint, they just want to use SharePoint V3 on the new SBS Box. I have migrated everything over, but the "http://Companyweb" goes to the old box, and I do not see Sharepoint on the new box. How do I go about correcting this?

Matt

Matt,

Check the DNS settings - check that the entry for CompanyWeb points to the IP address of the SBS 2008 server.

thanks

David
