I am planning to move SharePoint 2007 from a Windows 2003 32-bit system to a new Windows 2008 R2 64-bit server tomorrow afternoon. I have done much research and found only one article that gives me enough information to go on for the migration. Others
in technet have cited this article; so, I expect it is the one go use. However, before I begin, I wanted to see if anyone has anything else to add.
Here's the article I'm planning to use:
Our current environment consist of one front end server (Windows 2003 32-bit running MOSS 2007) and one SQL server (Windows 2008 Standard 64-bit with SQL 2008 640bit). So, we don't need to move the SQL databases - just the SharePoint front end. We
are moving to Windows 2008 R2 with MOSS 2007 (same SP and patch levels are planned).
Our final goal is to move to SharePoint 2010 in the next week or two, but this seems to be the required first step.
Most of what I've read online contradicts other things. I've found no consistency between articles.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
