INTRODUCTION

This article contains a list of all Pre-Upgrade Checker for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Service Pack 2 knowledge base articles. The Pre-Upgrade Checker ships in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Service Pack 2. It is used to assess the server for potential upgrade issues when you prepare to upgrade to the next version release that supersedes Windows SharePoint Services and SharePoint Server 2007.

MORE INFORMATION

The Pre-Upgrade Checker is a tool that calls an extensible set of routines. The routines can be run against an existing SharePoint 2007 environment that has been updated by using Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Service Pack 2. The Pre-Upgrade Checker routines are used to determine potential issues that may prevent you from upgrading successfully. The tool also enables IT operations personnel to scan their SharePoint farm in advance and provides feedback on the environment's readiness to upgrade. It also provides information that helps the personnel to fix issues that are discovered by the tool.

The Pre-Upgrade Checker runs rule-based checks. If the products have built rules for themselves, the ability of the Pre-Upgrade Checker to check for them can be extended. Products that include rules in the Pre-Upgrade Checker include:
  • Microsoft Search Server 2008 (informational rules)
  • Microsoft Office Project Server 2007 (informational rules and errors)
  • Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (informational rules)
  • Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007 (errors)
  • Windows SharePoint Services (informational rules and errors)
When you run the Pre-Upgrade Checker, it provides output text to inform you of potential issues. Possible solutions are suggested in the output text. For situations in which a more thorough explanation is required, the output text directs you to this article. Use this article to locate more information about the rule in order to help resolve the issue.

If the output text is not sufficient to explain the issue, you see text that is similar to the following in the rule output text:
For more information about this rule, see KB article XXXXXX in the rule article list at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=120257.
The following is the built-in stsadm command-line syntax to run the Pre-Upgrade Checker.
stsadm.exe -o preupgradecheck
                   [ -rulefiles <rule files delimited by comma or semicolon.> ]
                   [ -listrulefiles ]
                   [ -localonly ]
The Pre-Upgrade Checker does not perform any repairs. Instead, it checks for issues and provides an output list of issues and possible remedies to the issues.
