I searched for some upgrade topics from 5.4 to 6.1. I was hoping to find some intel on this specific situation. Does anyone has something to share?
I'm having some questions:
Thans in advance for the help and suggestions.
Much obliged,Thomas LefebureNL
My answers are in blue color.
-- You need to update your license to 6.x license. About how to get a new license I suggest you contact the relevant sales guy.
-- I am not sure about the exact disk usage of 6.1. But it should be very close to the disk usage of 5.4.
-- 6.1 can support SharePoint Foundation version. But we tested it on Windows Server not Windows 7. If 5.4 can work on Windows 7, I believe 6.1 can also work.
-- In my understanding, the contents you mean in your question are the web part configurations and the data displayed on the web parts, right?
Web part configurations are saved in the content database. And the data is from the SP lists/libraries. It is also saved in the content database. All the web parts configurations and the data can be kept after upgrading to 6.1.
Thank you so much for your response, it makes things a bit clearer.
