I have a fresh 2013 TEST and PROD SharePoint farm. At this point, I am just trying to migrate a SP 2010 Sales site collection to 2013 site collection. What are the steps for this. I did a backup of the source db and restored it to 2013 db. Is spmount be the next step.
You will need to create a site collection in SharePoint 2013, detach the newly created content database and then attach the 2010 content database to the site collection. SharePoint 2013 will upgrade it for you.
The process is explained here http://www.orcsweb.com/blog/cory-granata/how-to-upgrade-sharepoint-2010-to-sharepoint-2013-using-database-attach/
