Soon we'll be grading our SharePoint environment in an overnight upgrade... I'm currently prepping our servers to make the transition as painless as possible, but what sort of configuration can be completed prior to importing the content database? Currently we've only got the default
SharePoint_Config database for Central Admin ready.
The things I've got left that I'm not sure on are:
- Configuring Service Applications / services on the servers
- Configuring outbound email
- Adding farm solutions
- Add other general applications (ie SPD, Infopath, etc)
