I have a SharePoint environment that is running Sharepoint Server 2007 Trial (oops) on Server 2003 that I want to migrate off of asap. I have built up a whole new SP environment that is 64-bit and Windows Server 2008 R2 that currently has MOSS 2007
but was built with the intent to upgrade to SharePoint 2010. The new environment already has all the web applications and site colletions set up with some existing sites that I need to keep.
I have a lot of junk sites on the first environment that I don't want to move, so would like to move only the necessary sites to the new 64-bit environment as opposed to moving the whole database. I tried to back up and attach the content database but
ran across issues I believe because of different SQL versions and the 32-bit vs. 64-bit....but admit I don't know much about it and could have done something wrong.
What is my best course of action? I assume move over the necessary sites and then upgrade to 2010? Or can I upgrade and then move sites without having to pay for a 3rd party tool? If I move sites before upgrading, what is the best
method? I have had some luck with stsadm.exe but only some are successful while others fail. Thanks!
