WSS3.0 to SharePoint 2010 Upgrade

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hi folks

I asked a question in this forum previously about the WSS MS Application templates and if they were compatible with FS 2010. The answer was no they were not and that they would likely not work once the site was upgraded to 2010.

Now we have a lot of sites with a lot of different groups of users and its important that the upgrade doesn't break sites. Can someone elaborate on the likely issues that we will face if we go ahead and upgrade sites that are using the fantastic 40 templates?

Is there any guidance that we can send to these users which tells them what to do if they do utilise one of these templates. All our sites are host header based and they are not in seperate content databases which makes things more problematic.

Can anyone advise of the best approach in this case, it must be a common issue. Seems crazy to me that these templates are not compatable.

Any help/guidance very much appreciated

Thanks

Adam

How to upgrade from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 to SharePoint Foundation 2010 after mistanely de

  

I need a detailed instruction on how to upgrade From Upgrading from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0  (SBS 2003 ) to SharePoint Foundation 2010.

Background of the case:

I have all my databases (STS-database and STS_Config) saved but, I forgot to save my Virtual Site )Companyweb site) and I mistakenly re-installed IIS on the SBS 2003, hence  I lost the companyweb site. Is this an issue to migrate to Sharepoint foundation 2010. The Sharepoint foundation 2010 is running on a Microsoft HyperV Server 2008 R2
Also, I have created a Virtual 2003 SRV ENT with Sharepoint Services 3.0 running on it. I also have attached my Databases STS_Database and STS_Config)... how do I get it working like a regular website. I have modified the CNAME record to reflect the new server... http://companyweb - it take me to the new site but it loads a blank page. I did create a new CompanyWeb Virtual site on the VHD 2003 server.
Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your prompt response. Nelson

Cannot crawl sharepoint site and mysite after database attach upgrade form sharepoint 2007 to 2010.

  
After database attach upgrade site and mysite from sharepoint 2007 to 2010 , I have full crawl and get "The crawler could not communicate with the server. Check that the server is available and that the firewall access is configured correctly. If the repository was temporarily unavailable, an incremental crawl will fix this error. ( Error from SharePoint site: HttpStatusCode ServiceUnavailable The request failed with HTTP status 503: Service Unavailable. )" for mysite and get "Access is denied. Verify that either the Default Content Access Account has access to this repository, or add a crawl rule to crawl this repository. If the repository being crawled is a SharePoint repository, verify that the account you are using has "Full Read" permissions on the SharePoint Web Application being crawled." for sharepoint site. The content access account for search is "db_owner" of both of site and mysite. How do I solved this problem ?

Meeting Workspace unusable after SharePoint upgrade to 2010

  
Hello, We recently took a content database from MOSS 2007 and attached it to a SharePoint 2010 farm that uses a different DNS name. Now, there's a user who had a recurring meeting configured in Outlook 2010 with a meeting workspace  who can no longer use the workspace now that it only exists on SharePoint 2010. She tried removing the link to the old workspace from her recurring meeting and adding a new location using the new URL, but she gets a message saying a workspace already exists at the site. Obviously it does, but the meeting in Outlook is the same meeting. Is there any way to re-connect the Outlook meeting with the meeting workspace that exists on the new SharePoint 2010 server? Thanks.

SharePoint 2010 in place upgrade "Cannot complete the action"

  
I currently did an inplace upgrade to SharePoint 2010 Standard in a medium farm deployment with one WFE and a remote SQL server with one site collection.  The upgrade process was marked as finished in CA.  The problem now is with the root site in the site collection is throwing the error "Cannot complete the action".  I've narrowed it down to the "Pages" library in the the root site.  The root site is using site template id = 20 template name = SPS#0, and template title = SharePoint Portal Server Site.  If I hard code the URL in IE address bar I can get everywhere on the root site including the settings page of the "Pages" library.  The error is thrown when I try to access the "Manage Permissions" link of the "Pages" library or when I try to browse to http://<rootsite>/pages/default.aspx. I believe the default.aspx page was customized by the customer when they were on SharePoint 2007 Standard.

Access Denied/The workflow could not copy the item workflow error after Sharepoint 2010 upgrade

  
We have a sharepoint designer workflow that copies a document from one library to another on the same site.  Before the upgrade to 2007 it worked fine, but now with 2010 it gives an error and cancels the workflow when it gets to the copy list item step.   The error on the workflow page: The workflow could not copy the item. Make sure the source and destination lists have the same columns and column settings.  Access Denied   Specifically it is the "copy list item current item to documentlibrary" sharepoint designer workflow action.   I have given the system account full permissions to the library and double checked that all columns are the same in both libraries.

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  

Upgrade from MOSS 2007 Trial to Sharepoint Server 2010

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?

SharePoint 2007 upgrade to 2010 without UI update masterpage issue

  
I have a public facing site on a SharePoint 2007 farm that will be upgraded to 2010.  This site has a very customized look and feel that will not initially be updated to the 2010 UI.    I have run into one small issue with 2010's handling of legacy 2007 UIs.In SharePoint 2007,  to have a different master page for the application pages and dialog boxes we utilized an HTTP Module to switch the master page on the fly.    After migrating the SP2007 into our 2010 beta test environment the HTTP Module no longer worked properly.   I did some debugging and found out that SharePoint 2010 is returning a NULL value for MasterPageFile property on the pages in the _layouts folder.   I would have expected to see the URL pointing to the application.master page (or dialog.master).   Any ideas if this is a bug in SP2010 beta and will be fixed in RTM or is this the intended behavior.If it is the intended behavior in SP2010 how could I update my HTTP Module to allow the site to continue functioning as it did on 2007?   

SharePoint 2007 to 2010 Upgrade AND Farm Merge

  

Hello all,

I'm curious to see if anyone has done this.  Currently, my environment has 3 seperate SharePoint 2007 server farms.  I'm currently evaluating SharePoint 2010 and so far like what I see.  I'm wondering though what would be the steps I would need to go through to actually upgrade and then merge them all to one SharePoint 2010 farm?  The steps I can think of are the following:

1. Make sure all 2007 farms are on the lastest (or at least similar) version

2. Upgrade each farm to SharePoint 2010

3. Create new 2010 farm

4. Copy upgraded farms' site collections to NEW 2010 farm.

OR can I do this:

1. Make sure all 2007 farms are on the same version

2. Create a copy of each current SharePoint 2007 site collection that I want

3. Create NEW 2007 Farm

4. Copy content to new farm

5. Upgrade new farm to 2010

 

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

 


SharePoint 2010 in-place upgrade fails

  

Hello,

I have tried the in-place upgrade in a test site and its fails. When I remove the SSP the upgrade was succesfull.

In the error log there is a backup device reference 'C:\DATA\slq_Backup\INT_SharedServices_DB_backup.dat'. This file is missing now. Maybe this is a previous config, but I can't remember it. In the SQL Server 2008 I have not found any backup device. We use third partly backup solution. I don't know where the corresponding backup file is configured.

Error log:
