Before you ask

I am surprised that no one has sent me an email yet asking whether SharePoint 2013 Beta can upgrade the existing version of Companyweb on SBS 2011. So before you ask, yes it can. I wouldn’t recommend it just yet for a swag of reasons.

 

However, as the screen shots below can testify, it can be done.

Naturally you have questions like:

 

- is this supported?

- how do you do it?

- do all the SBS wizards still work?

 

For the answers to these and many other questions you’ll probably have about SharePoint Foundation 2013 beta on SBS 2011 you’ll have to stay tuned to future posts.
