I am in the process of completing a Farm Upgrade from 2013 to 2016. I have the new 2016 Farm built and configured, and am ready to transfer the databases.

I know that I don't need to move the following: (Already created on new 2016 farm). Sharepoint_Config, Sharepoint_AdminContent.

I know that I do need to move the following: WSS_Content_xxxxxxxxxxxxxx, WSS_Content_MySites, WSS_Logging, Search_Service_Application, Secure_Store.

However: Should I also move the following?

SbGatewayDatabase, SbManagementDB, SBMessageContainer01, SocialDB, ProfileDB, WFInstanceManegment, WFResourceManagement.

  • Single/Same Farm. I see workflow manager components in my 2013 Farm, and we have lots of workflows running that need to transfer to the 2016 Farm.
