Migrate WSS 3.0 from Server 2003 R2 to 2008 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to migrate wss 3.0 to server 2008 R2 because 2003 R2 standard is  bottlenecking it with 4GB maximum ram.

    So far I've read that the right thing to do is:

    Backup wss 3.0

    Install wss 3.0 on server 2008 R2

    Restore backup


    Will there be no problem restoring a x32 wss backup on x64 wss? Also 64bit requires SQL x64 right?

    Is there any step-by-step guide for this scenario?
