First of all, you should be aware of The new Microsoft SharePoint Migration Tool doesn't support SharePoint 2010 yet, it only supports SharePoint 2013. Ref: Check the MSFT reply on 15/11/2017 (Planned to be supported in the future). So, if you need to use The new Microsoft SharePoint Migration Tool, you will need to first migrate from SharePoint 2010 to ...

Shall we migrate directly from SP 2007 to O365 direct? Yes, you can migrate directly from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint Online, It's not like the SharePoint On-Prem where you should first upgrade to SharePoint 2010 to can upgrade to SharePoint 2013. If yes, Could you please list out various options available to migrate to O365 directly? Manually copying ...

You will have to run a STSADM script to move users from the OLD-AD to the NEW-AD, like this: STSADM –o migrateuser –oldlogin OLDDOMAIN\user1 –newlogin NEWDOMAIN\user1 –ignoresidhistory This will do just fine on SharePoint Foundation. But if you have a User Profile Service Application, you may run into trouble. My experience tells me it doesn't work ...

Use Backup-SPSite and Restore-SPSite Backup-SPSite -Identity "https://oldwebapp/sites/sitetomove" -Path "C:\Backup\sitetomove.bak" Restore-SPSite -Identity "https://newwebapp/sites/newsite" -Path "C:\Backup\sitetomove.bak"

You have two options Database-Attach upgrade. Backup and Restore. Prerequisites Make sure that the SharePoint Build number of destination environment is higher than or the same build number of the source environment, to check this.

The ?contents=1 is working properly in SharePoint 2016 https://siteURL/pagename.aspx?contents=1 But in your case, I think you need to remove the WSP solution that contains this web part from the farm as the following: Retract & Remove the WSP solution Uninstall-SPSolution -Identity contoso_solution.wsp After retracting the wsp solution, remove it. ...

IMHO calculating a migration based solely on data size is ridiculous. If your farm is vanilla SharePoint, i.e. zero customizations, migration is "trivial", you just install SP2016, restore your content and service app data DBs on the new DB Server and attach them to the new ShareePoint farm. Barring any use of functionality made obsolete in SP2016 you ...

There is no OOTB/simple way to move the site collection in the Office 365. I am thinking two possible way. Option 1 You are able to manually save the sites as the templates and import to the new tenant as a workaround, it will not break the files and the structure in a site except the permissions.( One thing, if your site collections is publishing then you ...

Try PowerShell if you have access to the server or admin access to the list you need to import into. I will break down the parts of the script you might need as follows: 1. Set up the correct modules for SharePoint manipulation in your PowerShell script. 2. Set up the CSV import file in a variable in your script so that you can access the content of the CSV ...

Using MetaVisTechs content migration software I transferred just under 250gb in 24 ish hours on a 10Mbit line. Then I did 2.5gb in about 25minutes. It depends on the data and the complexity of the managed metadata. http://www.metavistech.com

You cannot backup and restore the database to the same farm. Each site collection within the farm has a unique ID, which is not changed during the database restore process. Instead you must use Backup-SPSite and Restore-SPSite which changes the ID of the Site Collection that is restored.

I suggest using The Free SharePoint Migration Tool from Microsoft. It provides a wizard-like experience, prompting you for information to simplify migrating your data from your on-premises SharePoint Server document libraries and local file shares to SharePoint Online (SPO). It supports the smallest of migrations to large-scale migrations with support for ...

The problem lies with the creation of 2 fields of User Type which were created using XML (Visual Studio). There fields were not provisioned correctly, the atrribute List="UserInfo" was not defined in the field definition. I've created the below script to fix this issue. Write-Host Adding SharePoint PowerShell Snapin Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint....

The two most common ways I do this are: The following commands in Powershell: Backup-SPSite http://yoursitename.com/site -path d:\yourfile.bak Restore-SPSite http://whereveryouwantyoursitetogo.com/site d:\yourfile.bak For this, you do want to note that you can't have two sites with the same GUID in the same web application. What this means, practically ...

You can move the site collection to a new database and then migrate. Start with creating a new content database from central administration. Application management > Manage content databases > select "Add a content database" to the left > select correct web application and database server, select a name and click ok. Now you can move your site collections ...

You can open the webpart which was created using VS 2010 in VS 2012 or 2013. You will need to update the assembly references, Dot Net framework version, reference to layouts, control templates etc. See here for more information on how to upgrade solutions created for SP 2010 t SP 2013 http://sharepointnadeem.blogspot.com/2013/12/sharepoint-2013-upgrade-...

As per my experience, I don't think you can make of a copy of content DB with in same farm even with the different web app. because it contains the site collections IDs which will remain same even making the copy. Config db have those ids that why you cant see any site collection in new restored db. You can restore it to different farm. In order to prove ...

The key in a SharePoint migration are the customs. When SharePoint does not have customs, migration is almost trivial and can take hours or days. When you have customs, it may take weeks or months. What kind of customs may exist? Branding (master page and CSS) Client side (client object model) SharePoint designer Server Side With Visual Studio (event ...

If you migrate content only with the tool, yes you might bypass the warning messages you get when doing a database attach migration. You may still encounter problems depending on what these customizations did. In our experience with using a third party tool to go from 2010 to SPO, all of the customizations we knew of were not carried over (obviously) and ...

only option in your case is 3rd party tool, reason is you want to move everything( a complete site collection) and for that no OOTB method. if you want just content then you can open both sites(source and destination) in explorer and copy paste the data. or save as template if no publishing feature. I never tried this but you can ask O365 support, if they ...

As you have the unique Permission then I think best option is use the 3rd party tools i.e Sharegate( as they offer free trial). There are limitation with export & import web commands.Even you use Includesecurity in your paramters then unique permission on list will not carry.I would try the following steps and test what moved and what's not. export ...


2

Depends on how you're migrating content, but if you're using a 3rd party tool, you would need to use the tool's user mapping feature (e.g. map DOMB\JDoe to DOMA\JDoe). If using the built-in database attach approach, you would need to use: $user = Get-SPUser -Identity 'i:0#.w|domb\jdoe' -Web http://webUrl #Site Collection where the user is present Move-...

Chatty means it require lot of communications back and forth to achieve a task. But there are ways around it. For example: You can keep loading the request to server using context.Load.. and once its all loaded you can fire executequery

Microsoft has recently released its latest version of SharePoint Migration tool available free of cost to their customers. You can use Microsoft’s SharePoint Migration tool to migrate content (folders and documents) to SharePoint Online along with basic metadata. However, the Microsoft SharePoint migration tool may fall short if you have a complex or ...

First, the build number of the destination farm must be the same or higher than the source farm. In your case, The Production farm has been batched with October 2015 CU. The Test farm has been batched since with May 2017 CU. Check also Find farm patch level / latest cumulative update that has been installed on SharePoint farm Unfortunately, you can't ...

Its depends on, Every company is different. if you ask 3rd party consultant company if they place their migration expert then they charge you per hour(they calculate the hours in advance as per the amount of Data). As per our recent experience, Metalogix charge you for the amount of data while ShareGate is charge you for the number of users(who will perform ...

As you already get the answer but I would like to give my 2 cents. to avoid any unknown issue. Install and configure the SharePoint on Dev server( Version should match to prod) Create new service accounts and set the permission. Create new Web app (s) Configure the authentication as in Production Apply customization if any i.e Web.config change etc ...

Yes it should work because it's not a matter of how many servers you have, if it's a single farm then you can migrate it to from a multi servers environment to your new single box environment by migrating the content databases.
