Insight on Upgrade Binary Upgrade In Place - New Timeout, Resume on failures Database Attach - New Parallel, Progress Indicator Visual Upgrade Separate process Delegation by default
In-Place Upgrade All-at-once upgrade Must upgrade the whole farm at one time No SP 2007 and SP2010 in same farm Schedule downtime Simplest approach, but *most risky*! No going back Resume Upgrade if problems occur Recommendations Run Test-SPContentDatabase from SP 2010 farm against databases Do a full farm backup before you start!
1. In Place - Binary Approach to Upgrade Caution: Not recommended for most deployments…
Database Attach Upgrade Safer, Requires more planning (A good thing) Upgrade is done on a separate 2010 farm Done database-by-database Can be used as 2 step gradual visual upgrade Use Test-SPContentDatabase (PowerShellcmdlet) to test database first To attach Upgrade-SPContentDatabase (PowerShell) Addcontentdb operation (STSADM) Parallel database upgrades are possible
2. DB Attach- Binary Approach to Upgrade Recommended for most deployments…
