sharepoint upgrade from 2007 to 2010 RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • we had a upgrade project from 2007 to 2010 .

    first we are doing on test(vm created in same server where share point production environment  exist ) machine
    had following qn's

    1) we will create a replica of sharepoint in vm and then upgrade (production running in parallel)
        so once the upgrade is done how to move the new files or documents what ever the stuff they will add in production to upgraded  
        environment .
    2) as it is a intranet application and the url to access sites will be same even after upgrading is there any chance the url will show new 
        is there any way i can stop the pointing to wards to new version url until we test the new version
    3) can we run both version in parallel for some time (once the upgrading and test is successful the test VM environment may the final version ).

    please suggest me the best way to handle this situation
    Thanks in advance

  • Hi Manjula,

    The best approach here would be to create different subnets and test each environment using host entries in your system. You can also use automated tools like dshift migrator for SharePoint. A trial version is available at dshift.com
