Migration of Content Databases from SP 2010 "Domain A" to SP 2013 "Domain B" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    I am in the process of planning the migration of my SP Foundation 2010 farm to SP Server 2013.  I have tested this previously with the following steps and was successful:-

    1. Backup DB on SP2010 SQL
    2. Restore DB on SP 2013 SQL
    3. Run  Test-SPContentDatabase –Name WSS_Content_*** –WebApplication https://intranet.***.com.au
    4. Mount the DB - Mount-SPContentDatabase –Name WSS_Content_*** –DatabaseServer DomainA\SHAREPOINT –WebApplication https://intranet.***.com.au
    5. Convert Web App - Convert-SPWebApplication -Identity  https://intranet.***.com.au -To Claims -RetainPermissions –Force

    Now, the goal posts have changed and we may be moving to another domain.  Now, when I run Test-SPContentDatabase command in Step 3 above on Domain B, I get the error Login Failed for 'DomainA\SP_admin' - which makes sense.

    What would be the best way to restore a DB to a new domain?
