3 WSS 2.0 web sites plus SPS 2003 on single server - upgrade options? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have three separate WSS 2.0 web sites (not subsites of portal and not linked to the portal) and SPS 2003 running on the same server.  Management is till deciding on their upgrade options for MOSS 2007 (keep it for just IT, expand to other departments, go with Enterprise licensing,..).  Meanwhile the departments who have the separate WSS 2.0 sites are clammering to be upgraded to WSS 3.0.  Is it possible to install WSS 3.0 and upgrade just the separate WSS 2.0 sites prior to doing the upgrade of SPS 2003 to MOSS 2007?  I'd rather not have to move them to another server just to be able to upgrade them first.  Thanks!

    Sorry but you have to either move them to another server or else upgrade the whole environment to MOSS 2007. SPS2003 is dependant on WSSv2 just as MOSS 2007 is dependent upon WSSv3. You cannot implement a solution using WSSv2 and MOSS 2007 on the same server.
