    Hello Stefan,

    I have a required where by we need to migrate content from MCMS to WSS 3.0 portal. We can not use MOSS because of lincensing.

    Please guide.

    Thanks & Regards,

  2. Hi Jay,

    WSS does not have a publishing infrastructure. So it misses all the authoring capabilities with page layouts and similar.

    So you cannot migrate a MCMS site to WSS. You need MOSS.

    Cheers,

    Hello Stefan,

    Thank you so much for the inputs, do we have any third party tool to do so, i mean from MCMS to WSS?

    Thanks once again.

  4. Hi Jay,

    not sure if you understood what I explained. Even if you would find a 3rd party tool to somehow migrate the existing content to WSS you would not have any authoring capabilities to update and create new content as WSS does not have a publishing infrastructure.

    Cheers,

    Stefan
