Trial version & migration of 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello there,

    we are using Sharepoint 2007 at the moment, we are in the plan to upgrade into sharepoint 2016, reg. this i have some basic questions

    1. Our sharepoint document DB size is 190 GB,  Is it possible to migrate into sharepoint 2016 directly? If not tell me the way

    2. First i would like to try whether the steps to do migration(without any tool) is possible or not using Trial version? Is it possible in trial version

    Thanks

    Jey

  • Hi Jey, 

    I will strongly recomend ShareGate 15 days trial version.

    Reason:

    1) 190 GB is not too much data size.
    2) ShareGate provides 15 days trial version with unlimited data.


    Note: Trial Version prompt message "It will skip few documents randomnly because you are using trial version." but it never skips actually.


    Manual migration not recomended at all.

    Reason:

    1) Migrated to SP10 then 2013 then 2016.
    2) Time Taking.
    3) Bugs.

  • You cannot directly upgrade from SP2007 to 2016.

    For 3rd tools, both APElements FLY or ShareGate migrator are good.

  • Thank you Justin,

    So, from 2007 to which is feasible version to migrate?

    thank you

    jey

    The migration has to be performed step by step: from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010 or 2013; then you'll perform the final migration to SharePoint 2016 (you cannot directly migrate from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2016 or from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2016, you always have to pass through SharePoint 2013).

    Bye.

  • Thank you Luigi,

    In that case, if i install trial version in the server then am i eligible to migrate the entire DB, sites?

    Thanks

    Jey

    The trial version is a full featured version, there should be no problem from a technical perspective.
    Anyway, using a trial version could not be supported in a production environment: I would prefer to avoid potentially being in troublesome situations and having no support.

  • Thank you Rizwan.

    Note: Trial Version prompt message "It will skip few documents randomnly because you are using trial version." but it never skips actually.

    I worried about above words ok, may i know the steps to migrate manually since i dont wanna take random data loss risk.

    Thank you
