Windows Workflow Foundation, SP's
Run and Test a full back up
Run the preupgrade scan tool: You must run the tool ! otherwise the setup will not run. Tells what you have to do and all the other things, it pop ups, what you have to do. Also about custom site templates. Verify the customization. Custom Web parts are checked and many other things. Also orphan objects, Lists Documents, Site Collections ect.
There are two kind of upgrades. Second Part of the webcast is upgrading the Farms.
1. The old World with Portal Server 2003
SQL Server is installed,
Portal Server 2003 is installed
MS .Net Framework 2.0 is installed
And Custom WebParts are installed
Before you begin the Upgrade!
Install Windows Workflow Foundation
Backup the Config DB from your old Portal Server 2003
2. Run the SharePoint MOSS 2007 upgrade, run setup from the CD
Upgrade earlier versions dialog is available
- Yes perform an Gradual Upgrade
Is the best option, which we will use. For last sites with a lot of customizations
- Yes perform n automated in-place upgrade
- No do not upgrade
Complete, Web Front End, Stand Alone
We choose Complete!
Choose a file Location: default
Yes perform an gradual upgrade…..
First the upgrade process creates an CA Site and Web Application for MOSS 2007. Than a new Configuration DB. The old Config DB from Portal Server 2003 is copied to the new DB. Also Single Sign on is upgraded.
It would also install the server farm
Shared Services are upgraded too user profiles, search db. Virtual Servers are upgraded. Specifies the target web application which is created.
A new Content DB is upgraded. A new temp DB is created for each content DB in V 2.0
Copies the Data from the sites into the temp content db.
After that the content is moved to MOSS 2007 and the temp db is deleted
Both 2003 and 2007 is available on the same box
Content that could not be upgraded, the Config DB will exists v 2.0 and version 3.0
You use the same hardware !
URLs are redirected:
Two cannot share the same URL. You need two different URLs
2.0 Site: http://litwareinc.com
3.0 Site: http://litwareinc_temp.com
After each sites are upgraded you can manually remove the temp url from the Domain- name services
3. In Place upgrade
2.0 Config DB upgraded to Config DB 3.0
2.0 Search and Users Profiles are upgraded to 3.0 SSP DBs
2.0 Site Collection is upgraded to 3.0 Site Collection
This process is repeated on each server in the server farm.
Than you would uninstall SPS 2003 !
RUN THE GRADUAL UPGRADE (Can I upgrade my current server farm?)
RUN THE PREUPGRADE SCAN TOOL
This tool is installed automatically and must be stared before the Configuration wizard is started! You must run this tool.
Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\bin\prescan.exe run from the command tool
Prescan.exe /c presupgradescanconfig.xml /all
0% ….100 %
Command completed successfully
Change to the temp file under Document and Settings\administrator\Local Settings\Temp
There is a preupgradeLog_xxxxxxxxxx.txt open the file and read the entry
If you have an error, it is on the top of the report
Run now the SharePoint Products and Configuration Wizard
NO, I want to create a new server farm
Name of the DB Server, SharePoint_Config (must be empty)
Let now work the wizard……
