WSS To MOSS Cutover

    Question

  • Hello,

    Please I have setup a couple of sites for an environment. They use WSS 3.0 and I have been putting MOSS for them. Now I want to move them completely over to MOSS. I understand it is called cut-over. Please any useful information or advise along this line?

  • Hi,

    From start you should have your new setup reflect the already existing setup. If not then, send them new links and let them verify their contents and all (a lot of homework on your part though i.e backups, restores, re-attachings, solutions, etc). Do your DNS stuffs and on a weekend or a late night take the previous one down. There's a phase called UAT (User Acceptance Test) do that well, maybe a week or more of getting their feedbacks before the final move.


    You've only got one life; help as many people as you can, and enjoy it while it lasts.

But any more inputs will be appreciated...I don't want things to go wrong, if you know what I mean. Thank u.
