SharePoint 2010 Upgrade - Service Applications RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am in the process of planning a SharePoint 2010 upgrade to SharePoint 2013 and then to SharePoint 2016. Both SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint 2016 farms are built and include Managed Meta Data Service, Secure Store Service, Business Connectivity Service, User Profile Service and Search Service. How does having these services already installed on my SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint 2016 farms affect upgrading these services from SharePoint 2010? Can I upgrade these services if they are already installed on the SharePoint 2013 and 2016 farms?

  • That depends on the Service Application you are deleting and it's usage meaning how much you have been using that Service Application in your current SharePoint farm ?

    There is no risk at all as long as you don't delete the databases. You can delete and recreate service applications as many times as you wish but don't delete the attached databases to it.

    Thanks & Regards,

  • There are 2 ways you can do it, you can delete these service applications and reconfigure the service applications with your old databases. or you can simple create a New Servcie Applications with your old Databases. You can keep multiple Service Applications on Same SharePoint Farm. Meaning you can have two Managed Metadata Service Application on Same SharePoint Farm.

  • Hi Tony,

    I agree with Sharath that you can create a new service application directly in the old database.

    You don't have to worry about them going to bother you.

  • Thank you Sharath.  What is the risk of deleting the current SharePoint 2013/2016 service applications and re-configuring/upgrading with SharePoint 2010 databases?
