I have created a new two-server 2010 farm and wish to perform a DB attach upgrade. I find the documentation vague, specifically as to the extent of the preparations on the new servers.
1) Per the documentation, configurations are not carried over. Does this mean that the AD and SharePoint Group accounts on 2007 farm will have to be all re-created from scratch?
2) Per the same documentation, "Create a Web application for each Web application that existed in the original environment... Use the same URL..." The SharePoint Services Provider no longer exists, so do I still need to re-create that as well? And at which point of the process do I attach the original SSP DB?
