Upgrading From SharePoint 2003 to SharePoint 2007
(Level 200 - Intermediate)


This three-day, instructor-led course is intended for IT Pros who
are responsible for upgrading their SharePoint 2003 deployments
to SharePoint 2007. The course emphasizes hands-on
experience through performing an upgrade via extensive hands-
on labs. The primary goal of the upgrade modules and labs is to
simulate the challenges that a real-world SharePoint
administrator will face, and provide best practices for upgrading
their production SharePoint deployments.

The course will also survey some of the many new and exciting
features of SharePoint 2007 including:

              UI enhancements such as persistent breadcrumb
               navigation, menu security trimming and tree-view site and
               subsite navigation
              Web Content Management (formerly part of
               Microsoft’s CMS product) which enables organizations to
               use SharePoint to create web sites that are visually
               appealing and consistently styled with the ability for non-
               technical content authors to publish content to the sites
               after appropriate approval
              Document Management enhancements including
               configuring content types, item-level security, check-
               in/check-out, versioning
              New Workflow Engine that allows designers and users to
               configure sophisticated multi-path, multi-action workflows
               for document libraries and lists
              Enterprise Search enhancements including the new
               Search Center site, Boolean searching, hit highlighting,
               indexing and search of business data through the Business
               Data catalog and many others
              New Site Templates including ones for Blogs, Wikis,
               Records Repository and others

This course is intended for:

              SharePoint Server Administrators
              Network Administrators
              Any other IT Professionals (developers, webmasters, etc.)
               who will be involved in projects to upgrade from
               SharePoint 2003 to SharePoint 2007 and need to learn
               more about the new functionality in SharePoint 2007


You must understand basic Windows networking and web concepts
such as TCP/IP, Active Directory, DNS and IIS.

You must have three or more months working full-time with
SharePoint 2003 (either WSS or SPS, or both).

Course Materials and Lab Environment

Students will receive a comprehensive course manual, which will include all presentation
materials and lab exercises. The lab exercises are step-by-step and fully documented
in the student workbook.

Each student will be given access to their own Windows Server 2003/SharePoint
Portal Server 2003/WSS v2 environment on the classroom hardware. In essence,
students will be attending a class where a fully functional customized SharePoint 2003
environment has been set up for their use in learning to upgrade the product. No pre-
installation of Windows Server software or SharePoint 2003 software on the
student’s laptop is required for this class.

Each student will need to bring a qualifying laptop to the class. Click here to verify that
your laptop meets the minimum requirements. Please pay special attention to the section
on the unique requirements for this class in particular.

Course Outline

(Note: This Course Outline is subject to minor changes and
refinements based on student feedback and instructor experience.)

There are two parts to the course:

       Part 1 – Upgrading: Modules 2 – 6

       Part 2 – New Features: Modules 7 - 15
Part 1 - Upgrading:

Module 1: Introducing Microsoft Office SharePoint 2007 and
Windows SharePoint Services version 3

This module presents a quick introduction to the two new products. As
with previous versions, customers will have the option of deploying
Windows SharePoint Services v3 as part of their Windows Server 2003
deployments, or, for an additional price, deploying the full Microsoft
Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS 2007) premium product. This
module will explain the differences between the two products and will
lay a foundation for the process of determining which is most suitable.

Module 2: Overview of Upgrade Requirements, Process and

First, this module will cover the hardware and software requirements
for MOSS 2007 and WSS v3. The pros and cons of using SQL Server
2000 vs. SQL Server 2005 will be discussed along with new Microsoft
technologies such as Windows Workflow Foundation that are now
required for SharePoint.

Second, the module will review the overall functionality of the
automated upgrade process and discuss the pros and cons of the three
primary upgrade options:

            In-place upgrade
            Gradual upgrade of site collections
            Content database migration

Module 3: Review of typical SPS 2003 and WSS v2
customizations that can impact the upgrade process

The upgrade that you will work through in class uses a Virtual PC
(VPC) image that contains a highly-customized deployment of SPS
2003 and WSS v2. The goal of starting with this image is to simulate
a relatively complex real-world deployment of SPS 2003 and WSS v2.

Some of the customizations and complexities that are represented in
the system to be upgraded include:
             Highly-customized styles, graphics and branding for SPS
               2003 and WSS v2.
             Sites based on custom site templates that were
               customized using FrontPage 2003 (unghosted pages)
             Sites based on a custom site definition
             Document libraries with hundreds of documents and
               nesting of subfolders
             Custom web-parts deployed
             Third-party add-ons deployed
             Web part connections in use
             Data view web part connected to a line of business
             Office Web Components in use to display interactive charts
               and graphs
             Custom search scopes, content sources and Best Bets
             Customized client-side JavaScript (OWS.JS)
             Portal Areas and Listings in use
             Audiences configured
             My Sites created and populated
             Site Directory populated with top-level WSS sites
             Custom security applied to portal, sites, subsites and
               document libraries

In short, the SPS 2003 and WSS v2 sample that each student will
upgrade during the course has been designed to expose as many
issues as possible that are not resolved automatically by the upgrade
program provided by Microsoft.

Module 4: Performing the upgrade using the gradual option

In this module each student will connect to an instance of Virtual
Server 2005 on the classroom network and use that instance to
upgrade the VPC image in an isolated environment. The gradual
upgrade option will be used in the lab.

Module 5: Analyzing the results of the upgrade and
determining issues that must be resolved

The instructor will lead an analysis and discussion of the results of the
automated upgrade and point out specific problems\issues with the
upgraded system.

Module 6: Strategies and techniques for resolving upgrade
The instructor will present strategies and techniques for resolving the
issues that occur due to features and content that do not upgrade
successfully or completely.

Part 2 - New Features:

Module 7: Tour of major new features in SharePoint 2007

This module will provide an overview presentation and demos of the
most important new features that have been added to SharePoint
2007. The presentation will cover:

            User Interface (UI) and navigation enhancements
            Document management enhancements
            The new Workflow engine
            Office 2007 Integration
            New Web Parts
            New Site-type templates
            Enhancements to List technology
            Web Content Management
            Business Data Catalog
            Search enhancements
            Report Center
            Records Management
            Business Intelligence and Excel Server
            Forms Server and InfoPath
            The “Features” feature
            Alternate authentication providers and Forms-based

Module 8: Digging Deeper - UI Enhancements and Navigation

In SPS 2003 and WSS v2, there are many inconsistencies in the user
interface. Frequently, users complain that they get “lost” while
attempting to navigate from portal to sites and from sites to sites.
Also, it is common for users to see menu items to which they
apparently have access, but then receive an authentication challenge
when they click on them.

Much work has gone into the new version to improve the user
interface. In this module, you will get hands-on experience with
improvements such as:

            Security-trimmed menu options
           Automatic breadcrumb-bar
           Customizable tree-view left navigation bar
           New web part selection interface

Module 9: Digging Deeper - Document Management and Office
2007 Integration

One of the major selling points for SharePoint 2003 has been the
document management capabilities of document libraries and Office
2003. For many companies this has been a vast improvement over
server-based file shares. However, SharePoint 2003 has also been
criticized for having too many “rough edges” in its document
management functionality.

SharePoint 2007 overcomes many of the previous version’s
shortcomings related to document management. Some of the
important new document management enhancements that you will
explore in this module are:

           Item-level security
           Content types
           Major and Minor versioning
           Required Check-in, Check-out
           Capturing metadata with the new Office Document
            Information Panel
           Navigation to document libraries from within the Office
           Offline document support using Outlook 2007

Module 10: Digging Deeper – Workflow

SPS 2003 and WSS do not include a true workflow engine. SharePoint
2007, on the other hand, incorporates all of the richness of the
Windows Workflow Foundation. Furthermore, the new SharePoint
Designer client application (the successor to FrontPage 2003) includes
a built-in Workflow Designer. In this module, the student will gain
hands-on experience with the new workflow engine and the
capabilities of the Workflow Designer.

Module 11: Digging Deeper - New Web Parts

Many new and improved web parts are included in SharePoint 2007.
In this module, you will gain hands-on experience with several,
              Sites roll-up web part
              Documents roll-up web part
              Colleagues and memberships web part
              Content Query web part
              Enhanced calendar view web part

Module 12: Digging Deeper - Search

In SPS 2003 and WSS v2, in many instances the Search experience is
confusing due to the fact that the two products use different indexing
and search engines and different user interfaces.

In MOSS 2007 and WSS v3, both products use a common indexing and
search engine and share a common user interface for search
functions. This module will give you hands-on experience with the
common indexing and search engine and point out the differences in
features depending on which product is deployed.

Module 13: Server Farm Topology and Administration

The administration interface for SharePoint 2007 has been completely
re-designed based on feedback from customers. The time-consuming,
less-than-intuitive hierarchy of administration web pages has been
replaced with a more streamlined approach that is designed to make it
easier for administrators to find the configuration options they are
looking for.

Also, the configuration of the topology for the MOSS server farm has
changed significantly with the new concept of the Shared Services
Provider (SSP). First, all MOSS server farms are now required to
implement at least one Shared Services Provider. Second, the Shared
Services Provider no longer requires that a certain portal/site parent-
child relationship be implemented along with the shared services.

You will explore these changes and improvements in SharePoint server
farm administration through instructor presentation and
