How to migrate SPS 2003 subsite/document libraries to MOSS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a MOSS farm which just recently migrated from SPS 2003; As a few SPS 2003 sites are still accessible during the migration process, now I need to migrate only some parts of SPS 2003 site such as a subsite, some document libraries etc to the new MOSS farm.

    What's the best way to do that? Can I still use stsadm -o export function to export SPS 2003 data and then use stsadm -o import to import into MOSS.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Which of the three upgrade paths from SPS 2003 to MOSS 2007 did you use?

    Two (1 and 3) of them should have moved the entire SPS 2003 set of sites to MOSS 2007 with only the second (gradual upgrade) not immediately making all the sites available in MOSS 2007.

    The documentation for that (second) method should explain how to move the rest of the sites over to MOSS 2007.

  • Hi

    Yes, stsadm -o export/import can be used to migrate site from SPS 2003 to MOSS 2007.
    For more information, you can refer to:

    For your scenario, I don’t think you need to move sites after you’ve done database migration.
    Actually, content database will be migrated to the new environment during database migration.
    Therefore, all the site collections stored in the content database will be migrated to MOSS 2007 no matter whether sites of site collection are accessible during the migration process or not.

    Best Regards!

  • We used database migration approach and the whole SPS 2003 farm has been migrated to MOSS already. Now we just want to selectively migrate the difference as some of the sites (a few only) are still open for access during the farm migration.

    Can I use stsadm -o export/import to migrate a subsite under the SPS2003 portal area to MOSS?
