  • You might run to some issues if your large size list has more than 5000 items. Migration may also run for several hrs and interruption may also happen. Having said that, you've two options.

    1. Using database upgrade method. which requires SP2010 farm patch level and content db ready for upgrade.

    2. Using 3rd party tool, Metalogix, Sharegate, Quest and others. One of these tools will help to migrate regardless state of farm. 

    Expect post migration issue resolving.

  • Hi Kumar,

    Some detailed steps which i followed for MIGRATIONS:

    1. Backup Old Content DB : Take all Content DB backups(Web Application, User Profile[UserProfile Social, UserProfile Sync], Manage Meta data, Performace Point, Secure store services, Any third party Content DB associated with Current webaplicaton, Search).

    2. New Site Settings : Alternate Access mapping, Quota template, Manage path, self-services, Site managing settings, Incoming & Outgoing email settings, SSL certificate.

    Master Pages , Page Layouts and Themes can be redesign in SP2013.

    3. Restore New Content DB : Restore all Content DB in new environment.

    4. Manage Customization : <1>Use Stsadm –o enumallwebs (with includefeatures and includewebparts parameters) in the SharePoint 2010 Products environment to identify specific customizations in subsites

    <2>Check the web.config files for changes and look for custom controls

    <3>Use SPDiag to find deployed solutions.

    5. PreChceking UpgradeContentDB : We can skip this step, But it’s not recommended. Run the “Test-SPContentDatabase –Name SP2010DB –WebApplication http://xyz:8080/  > C:\\TextResults.txt” this command write a text file with errors and warning of Content DB before upgrading. Resolve all issue(Missing reference, Assemblies, authentication mismatch) before upgrading the content DB. Run this command again and again to resolve all issue.

    6. Upgrade/Mount Content DB : “Mount-SPContentDatabase –Name SP2010DB -WebApplication http://xyz:8080/”

    Detach a content database: "Dismount-SPContentDatabase "<ContentdBName>""

    Attach an existing content database: Mount-SPContentDatabase "<ContentDb>" -DatabaseServer "<DbServer>" -WebApplication http://SiteName

    7. Upgrade to Claims Based Authentication : Launche  d SharePoint 2013 Management Shell as Administrator

    $WebAppName = "http://xyz:8080/"

    $wa = get-SPWebApplication

    $WebAppName

    $wa.UseClaimsAuthentication = $true

    $wa.Update()

    8. Performing visual upgrade on new site : At the beginning it will still present the SharePoint 2010 look and feel. This process may differ depending on size of Content DB.
