Is there a way to Upgrade SharePoint 2007 Content Database without installing Service Pack 2, before database attach upgrade to 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Want to upgrade SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010 without installing Service Pack 2 on SharePoint 2007 Server.

    I want to carry out the database attach from SharePoint 2007 Content Database to SharePoint 2010 but am unable to run Service Packs on the SharePoint 2007 Server. Is there any way to prep the content database manually?

  • You must install SharePoint 2007 SP2 before you can perform a database attach upgrade to SharePoint 2010.

    What if you create a SharePoint 2007 farm with SP2 that you can attach the databases in before upgrading to SharePoint 2010?

    The only other option if you want to skip SP2 is to use a third party migration product that supports this migration path.
