In this series of posts I discuss about Upgrading from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010.
The first step before starting upgrading to SharePoint 2007 is installing SP2 and October 2010 CU for SharePoint 2007.
After installing this SP2 you receive possibility to run tool for determinate problems
in current SharePoint 2007 installation. To run this tool, open command line prompt by Start->Run->cmd and
press Enter. Navigate to SharePoint Root Installation Folder for example:
cd C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\BIN and press Enter.
After this run this command line:
stsadm -o preupgradecheck
Pre-upgrade scanning tool create an XML log file and a text log file, these log files are written to the %COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\LOGS directory.
After the scan is finished, the XML results are transformed to HTML format that is displayed as a page in the default Web browser. The file-naming convention for the transformed XML is PreUpgradeCheck_YYYYMMDD-hhmmss-millisecond-random-number.HTM.
This HTML file file contents information about detected errors and warning.
In next post in this post's series we start review this file for determinate solutions for detected problems.
