Our SharePoint 2007 (WSS 3.0) instance is on the same server as our Report Services. I've been tasked with moving the SharePoint portion to a new VM. Current environment is Server 2003/SQL 2005 and new environment will be 2008r2/SQL 2008. The plan is to backup and restore the content database on the new server, install SharePoint, make the needed changes and validate.
I know there's work to be done to the database since it's living on a new server. I believe some of the 12 hive will need to be copied over as well (_layout, images, etc).
Any advice or sources to help with this project?
