  • Hi,

    I am bit confused with your statements here.

    Are you planning to transfer any date (Ex Site) from one sharepoint server to other one with those versions?

    Or you are joining a server with higher version to your farm?

    The first one can be done with no issue , you can take backup of the site and can restore it to destination server farm.

    For the second one I would suggest that it is recommended to have all servers with same versions of sharepoint installation.

    I hope this will help you out. 



    Thanks, Rahul Rashu

  • I agree with Rahul. Please migrate the SharePoint server to another server with the same version. Then upgrade the new server in case you want to do it.

  • Thanks you guys for resposnse..

    Some confusion..apologies for that..Its the subsite I am working on..

    But the problem is I am not farm admin and I have just full control over sharepoint site.(subsite)

    the next problem I am facing is I want to use template from sp2007 wss to move our customized views and tabs over new site..

    the destination is also sp2007. but the site templates and templates options are totally missing from galelries.
