Best Way to Convert MOSS 2007 Site Templates to SharePoint 2010 Templates

Ok, I just treid to do something that I didn't really think would work, but now that I've seen it fail, I get to ask the question. Is there a best practice on converting site templates built for MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2010. We have several projects that used the Visual Studio Extensions (v1.3) and the SharePoint Solution Generator to build custom site templates and the .wsp packages. I can add and deploy the solution packages using the STSADM tool, but when I try to create a sub-site based on that template, I get an Object Not Set to an Oject Reference Error. In case anyone is wondering, it works fine in MOSS 2007. I have not tried Visual Studio 2010 yet (it's downloading in the background). I'm just wondering if anyone has run into this and what they did to fix it. TIA, John.

MOSS 2007 upgrade to Sharepoint 2010 across domains

I recently did an upgrade at a customer site. I migrated their content successfully as well as their Mysites. Their MOSS farm was situated on a domain, let's say "domain 1". Due to a merger, their domain had to change to "Domain 2". The Sharepoint 2010  farm was set up on new domain. We now need to change the existing user logins from the upgraded content db to the new domain. domain1\user to Doamin2\user.  We considered a manual process, but it is simply not a viable option. Furthermore, the migrated mysites works fine, but the problem is, the users need to login with their old login details to view the content. Which is unacceptable. The mysite content now needs to be associated with the users on the new domain. Bear in mind that the users already have logins and permissions as per the previous configuration (domain1\user) I consideredd using the stsadm migrate user command, but that could also be laborious. The other concern is the SID associated to each login. I am not sure if the -ignoresidhistory switch will help, or if this command is even usable in SP 2010. I there possibly another, more effective method to accomplish these tasks, say a Powershell script or a magic wand?   Regards,   Warren

MOSS 2007 to SharePoint Server 2010 Hybrid Upgrade Approach on Windows Server 2003 x64

There's some guidance circulating about upgrading to 2010 with a mix of In-Place and Database Attach upgrade methods. My Central Admin and SharePoint Web App are on a 64 bit server, but it's running on Windows server 2003 x64 and not on Windows Server 2008 or 2008 R2. SharePoint Team Blog says Server 2008 or 2008 R2 is required for SP2010. If I want to do the hybrid upgrade approach, is it possible to first upgrade the OS to Server 2008 R2 on the server where my Central Admin and SP Web App runs?  Or will this break MOSS 2007?

How to upgrade MOSS 2007 custom site definitions to SharePoint 2010?

MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2010 Upgrade Fails - Object with Id 57bdacb5-31fe-4f4c-bdb3-3caf048474bd and


Ok apart from deleting these Classes and Objects what else can be done. Any one know a way around. Just to help you find them if you have a similar error look in the Classes and Objects Tables in the Offending database listed in the error message. In this error message below it is SharePoint_Config. How I found them,  yes its like looking for a needle in a hey stack see this post, very handly sql query.

I have a copy of a VM I can create again so I am going to try deleting these and if this works I will Answer my own post. This of course is unsupported and purely a hack hence why I am posting searching for enlightenment. Of course I have other errors so this may merely negate the first one.

MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2010 Upgrade Fails - Exception: The user or group 'wsaarole:wsaa administra


Ok the top part of the error I have tracked down to some entries in the SharePoint_Config database (Classes, Objects, TimerRunningJobs) and since I have a VM I am going to study them and try deleting them probably, if it dies I will delete this VM and roll up another VM in my case its a timer job that I am guessing the farm can live without.

The other error further down is more of a concern to me which is the one I listed above. The Group exists and it is in the farm and appears to be healthy no errors in preugrade check or the like or in the Farm. When upgrading the show stopper for me is that the content databases will not upgrade (assuming they upgrade FBA I can configure) the chicken and egg issue for me is this is an FBA farm, so is it the case that b/c FBA is missing not configured yet on the other side of the upgrade in 2010 that these content dbs connected to FBA (by FBA users in the content dbs) will upgrade affter FBA is configured ( I haven't tried this yet sorting my error log one error at a time). The Particular content dbs with an issue are shared services and the main site collection db which includes my sites site collections also.

Upgrade from MOSS 2007 to SharePoint Server 2010 but with a catch...


... and the catch is that the MOSS 2007 Site Collection is contained in the SharePoint Central Administration v3 Web Application and therefore the SharePoint_AdminContent_... database which is used by Central Administration (not my doing btw).  Please let me know how to copy it to a new 2010 server farm and then upgrade just our sites and content while removing all of the 2007 Central Administration stuff.
