Do you document the details of your SharePoint 2007 web application
  v5.0 Posted at 10/08/2012 8:09 PM by Lu Zhang

When you move to SharePoint 2010, you will need to know the settings you had on your 2007 server.
Therefore document all the settings from the SharePoint 2007 server, that you will need to re-create on the SharePoint 2010 server.

Fill in the following table. You will use this later when creating the new web application in SharePoint 2010.
