  • 3. Plan how you intend to meet the time and space requirements for the migration • You will need a large database to upgrade SQL, content databases, Site Settings, customizations, Web Parts, Workflows, etc. • Hence create double or triple the size of the existing SharePoint 2010 database as it will reduce the time needed, as well as help in managing changes after the upgrade • Schedule your tests and upgrades during off- peak hours
  • 4. Perform dry runs, test the results and repeat the dry runs till satisfied • Always execute dry runs to identify upgrade bottlenecks • Identify the points where upgrade can seize up, test the level of end user functionality after the upgrade, check areas that need to be mapped properly in order to assign correct permissions, check shortcomings that need to be rectified in order to bring the data up-to-date, etc.
  • 5. Identify and prioritize SharePoint 2010 customizations • Identify and clearly map user defined customization so that subsequent to the upgrade, SharePoint 2013 users can continue to work as usual • Identify all the Custom Content Types, Workflows, Web Applications, Themes, Document Templates, Lists, Metadata columns, public URLs, Site Collections, Web Parts and all the possibilities in the Site Content
  • 6. Use PowerShell scripts if and wherever necessary • Tasks like attaching the databases or mounting them are better performed through scripts
