SharePoint 2013 to 2016 Migration and facing case sensitive issue


  • Dear All,

    I have migrated my SharePoint 2013 on-premise to 2016 on-premise with Content DB detach and attach method. My Sp2013 had one content database for all the department sites and I have separated the department sites in to different content database. Example http://localhost/hr will have WSS_Content_HR, but when I try to browse the site automatically the site is loading with http://localhost/HR and i am getting page not found, if I browse the site like http://localhost/hr, it is working fine. Microsoft web server is not case sensitive and we are facing this issue for few departments and rest of the departments are working fine. Can someone help me on this.

    Thanks & Regards

  • You should check if the DNS is connecting to the right server. After that, check the IIS bindings. Check if IIS site is started and application worker. Also check if alternate access mapping is setup right. Also it could be the case you've setup the new web application with the wrong host header. If above won't work i'd recommend to recreate the web application and mount the DB to the new WebApp.
