I'm migrating from SharePoint 2010 to 2013 version. I've already created the new farm on 2013, but I have some problems on bringing the databases to 2013.

Can anybody give some tips?

I already have all the databases on the new server, but I'm having some different problems to sync the new site with these databases.

To upgrade the SharePoint 2013 is very much tested method. here are the steps you have to follow.

  • Create & Configure new SharePoint 2013 farm
  • Copy the database from old sql server to new Sql Server (sharePoint 2013 farm's sql)
  • run the upgrade content database command.
  • Last step, upgrade the site collection to SP 2013 mode.
  • perform the testing.

Here is the MSFT article for step by step or watch this video "Upgrade overview videos for SharePoint 2013"
