I'm working on a standalone SP server. It has some issues, we decided to reinstall SP on another machine with a separated SQL server. My question is: what's the correct procedure to do this so that we can keep all sites/webs and their customizations?
Here is what I plan to do: 1) install SQL 2) install SP, make sure it has no error. 3) backup/restore content databases, attach to farm.
Will this work? One problem I may have is that some wsp may be installed on the standalone server, and we do not have access to these WSP anymore. Does it mean there is no way to restore these sites on new server (the same as before)?
