Migrating SharePoint 2007 (Moss) site to SharePoint 2010 - Part-2

Continuation to my previous post Migrate Moss site  to SharePoint 2010 site part-1

Here is the report of the Test-SPContentDatabase command

Here in my case I have created a event handler for the tasks using features in my Moss site but  I have not copied them to 2010 server so these are the errors/messages i got above

1. Missing Feature
2. MissingAssembly.

So I copied that feature and assembly from moss server to SharePoint 2010  server and then i got no errors.

Step 5:

Add the Moss content database(i.e earlier restored) to our 2010 site(Demo10).

Open command prompt and run this command

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN>  stsadm -o addcontentdb -url -databasename 

Ours :stsadm –o addcontentdb  -url  http://trainingsp2:4311 –databasename Wss_Content_4311.

Above if you get 100% without any errors means the content database added to the site completely. If you get any errors check the log file at 14 hive and do the needful things (If u miss any customizations, files etc….).

With this my MOSS site is upgraded to 2010.  i.e My SharePoint 2010 site is ready with the Moss content database. 

Check it here

 Step 6 :

But the UI looks same as the Moss site . So if you want to change in to 2010 look and feel do the following settings


Select the Update the user interface (before this you can preview the new UI by selecting second option above)

Then your MOSS site appears exactly  as the SharePoint 2010 site

With this you can say  your MOSS site is upgraded to SharePoint 2010.
Step 7:

If you want to see and analyze the upgrade status go for this location  

Central Admin-->Upgrade and Migration-->Check Upgrade Status.There you will find all the trails/attempts made for upgradation with the status error information.

Here if your Status is Failed . Go to the Log File specified over there and find the causes for it. If the Status : Succeeded, you can say your Upgradation is success without any errors.
