We are preparing to migrate from WSS 3.0 to 2010. WSS is currently on a x86 operating system, so migrating to a x64 operating system will be involved as well. My co-worker's thought is to turn up a new x64 2008 server (using VMWare), turn up Foundation on that server and then migrate and attach the content databases and configuration database from our old front-end to the new one.
Is this even possible? Can you migrate the configuration database along with the content databases?
