We're completing a domain migration and trying to compile a set of sanity checks/tests to validate the move for various applications including SharePoint.

There is not requirement yet to do full functional testing of all applications built on SharePoint.

Does anybody have a list of basic sanity checks that would be performed to validate a SharePoint Farm moved to a new domain and also users moved to that domain?

I dont think, their is such list available. But i can share my experience.

  • Make sure all service started(which you are using)
  • Test the User Profile Sync, run the full sync and test if import all users.
  • Test the Search Service
  • Test all the web apps are up and running( account changed for the app Pool).
  • ask couple of customer, login to the sharepoint and test if their stuff working i.e authentication, permission etc.
  • Run the workflow.
  • check the ULS logs, event log for any critical error.
  • make sure all the content DBs are update and available.
  • Because the user accounts will be migrated too (using Move-SPUser) are there any further tests I need to do from user accounts? Sep 12, 2015 at 10:14
