@Jesus -- Thank you much for commenting here, too! Thanks for the link. I am having a production meeting this morning and will bring up the options.

comment Tutorial to move WSS 3.0 DBs from Windows Internal to SQL 2005 Instance
Hmmm... In the second link re: upgrading from Express to full SQL, there are two follow-up questions: 1. Does the full SQL install need to be newer than 2005? (I have licenses for 05, but not any others). 2. Maybe this is something different about Express 2008, but in WSS 3, the database is on a different server address entirely. \\.\pipe\MSSQL$MICROSOFT##SSEE\sql\query vs. \\servername\Sharepoint. I don't see how the author accounted for Sharepoint looking for the DBs in the old location?

I just checked and it looks like we have an Open License for Server 2008. Since this is an ESXi server, we could deploy a 2008 Server configuration with Sharepoint 2010 Essentials. Hmmmmmmm....

Yes, they work. I did see some errors in the Event Log re: an older sharepoint URL that is no longer is use. The errors are not continuous. Rather they logged for about 1.5 hours and stopped ... I am wondering if there is an Outlook client out there trying access over this older URL....

So as far at the Zones go, Default is servername. Internet is the 987 site. 443 is in the Intranet site. This configuration seems to work in that Search still functions and Outlooks outside of the LAN don't complain about inaccessible URLs. I do need to lock down the 80 site more to my liking, however and I've not re-tested outgoing email for alerts. I'll do that shortly and update.

First, I am sorry if I implied that you didn't read my post. I was unsure of the timing between my edit and your comment. I think that the way things are configured now is what you're suggesting. I didn't install Sharepoint so I don't know how things were set up in the beginning but I imagine that the first site was 80/NTLM. In essence, I've gone back to that original configuration, extended the original site twice using different ports. The original site is: servername. Extended1 is sharepoint.domain.com:443. Extended2 is sharepoint.domain.com:987.

Thanks. My anxiety over the whole procedure leads me to this question: Is it more troublesome to upgrade or to stay in WSS 3 and move the DBs into SQL 05? Keep in mind that we're going to do all of this on one server. -- Oh, this might be a wrinkle. We're running Windows Server 2003.
