Web Application restore to another Farm, same domain&forest RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I need to move several web applications from old Farm to a new Farm inside of the same domain and forest. Actually this is going to be a new installation.

    The both farms are SharePoint 2007.

    I have few questions:

    --Do i have firstly to create fake web applications on the new Farm and the restore the backups?

    --We have an shared services provider(SSP) holding all web applications. Do i have to create a fake SSP before and then restore the one from old farm?

    --We use currently Alternate Access Mappings and specific DNS name for each web application web_app1.contoso.org.How could i restore this mappings after restore?

    Any idea would be really appreciated.
