  • 16. Users Can Try A Demo Upgrade Sends an email to the Site Collection Admin when queue and eval site creation is complete. • The “Upgrade Evaluation Site Collection” must be clearly communicated as NOT FOR REAL USE as it expires in 30 days – noted in a bar at the top. • It also creates a copy of the site collection, so depending on search settings, and storage this can have significant ramifications (beyond just the performance implications). • Depending on SQL (non enterprise) this may set the site to ‘read only’ until creation is complete. #Share4Biz @RHarbridge Share Conference | @RHarbridge

  • 22. What Do Users Need To Know From IT? • • • • Information on what will happen during transition… Communication on when their ‘infrastructure’ upgrade will occur… Provided directions if using self-service upgrade… Notifications and reminders for when upgrade must be completed by… • Self-service upgrade still means getting people to do it eventually by a specific time • Notification when the ‘infrastructure’ upgrade is finished… • What IT support, training, and help will be available… #Share4Biz @RHarbridge Share Conference | @RHarbridge
  • 23. What Do Users Need To Know From IT? • In migration tool driven upgrade scenarios users will need to know what their level of involvement will be. • They may need training on the migration tools, or the migration process. • What will change after migration/upgrade? • How will IT be charging or managing the cost for the migration? • What new services IT will be providing that they can leverage using SharePoint 2013? #Share4Biz @RHarbridge Share Conference | @RHarbridge

  • 36. 3. Delete Unnecessary Versions Hopefully you already limit the number of versions whenever versioning is enabled… If you don’t – the upgrade provides a reminder (and benefit) to adjusting and evaluating versioning and previous stored versions of documents.

  • 44. Controlling The Site Collection Upgrade Rollout • Defer upgrade for site collections until you can get updated customizations to support 2013 mode. – If you wait until the customizations are available, you can complete the initial upgrade of database and services without significantly affecting use of the existing sites in 2010 mode. #Share4Biz @RHarbridge Share Conference | @RHarbridge
  • 45. 2007 Only – Address Large Lists Wait a second… I have SharePoint 2007 (or 2003)! • Large list views and lists with many lookup columns have performance challenges. • If you are upgrading to SharePoint 2010 this is also important to understand as the default throttling limits may impact user experience. • SQL Scripts (Read Only) and API calls can help identify what lists you do have over the default throttle settings, and which have a larger lookup count. • Preventative Measures: Selectively indexing large list columns can help (up to 10 columns), building smarter more efficient views (1st filter), CAML/Search alternatives… #Share4Biz @RHarbridge Share Conference | @RHarbridge
  • 46. Address Wide Lists? What are wide lists (lists with too many columns)? Column Type Number Of Columns (Table Row) Wide lists are lists with more columns than fit in a single rowspan in the content database. During upgrade, the database is changed to a sparse table structure, and a very wide list can cause upgrade to fail. Use the TestSPContentDatabase command in Windows PowerShell to look for wide lists in the content databases and then remove extra columns before you upgrade. Single Line Of Text 64 Choice 32 Date & Time 8 Yes/No 16 Number/Currency 12 Calculated 8 Integer, Lookup, People & Group, Managed Metadata 16 http://technet.microsoft.com/enus/library/ff382641%28v=office.15%29 Unique ID 1 #Share4Biz @RHarbridge Share Conference | @RHarbridge
  • 47. Number Of Site Collections Per DB Too many site collections in a content database? If you have 5,000 or more site collections in a database you should break them out into multiple databases. Why is this necessary? In SharePoint 2010 Products, there was a default warning at 9,000 site collections and a hard limit at 15,000 site collections. In SharePoint 2013 Preview, these values change to 2,000 site collections for the warning and 5,000 site collections for the limit. Microsoft ‘suggests you consider it’. Richard says you should do it (at a minimum). #Share4Biz @RHarbridge Share Conference | @RHarbridge
