The Content and Structure worked fine for me. Moving individual documents from one library to another captures all versions. Assuming, of course, versioning is configured the same on both libraries. That bit me the first time - the destination had Major, but the source had Major/Minor. Once the destination was switched to Major/Minor, documents came over ...

The critical component when failing over a Workflow Farm to a New SharePoint Farm (In the same domain or otherwise) is that the new SharePoint Farm must have the same Realm as the original one. Realm is by default identical to the SharePoint Farm ID, but can be changed using Set-SPAuthenticationRealm -Realm FarmIDoftheOriginalFarm. Few Caveats: You will ...

I know this is old, but I was also frustrated, that nobody had done this before. I decided to write my migration script in powershell. If you ever need something like this again, give it a try: http://memyselfandbenchase.blogspot.de/2015/07/migrate-your-wordpress-blog-to.html Hope it helps someone else. Here is the script. Sorry that it is so long. #...

The best approach IMO would be to: Setup the new server with OS and SP Launch the SP configuration Wizard on this new server Make it join the existing farm, i.e. make it point to the same config DB (and obviously same SQL server) as the first Web-front. Don't forget to choose to host the Central Admin on this new server (you're asked for this during ...

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 ...

Couple of things can change the database size. If There is any unused or white space inside the content database then during the backup and restore method database automatically shrink it. If there is any orphan items inside the content db then during db restore method it may clear those. There are possibility that you deleted data in SharePoint 2013 or may ...

For future reference: there's a legacy API used by SharePoint Designer, called FrontPage RPC, and there's a bunch of methods, including move document that accepts a put_option parameter with migrationsemantics flag to preserve the information about who created a document, who modified it, and when it was created, and this could be used from advanced workflow ...

I always employ the drag and drop method suggested by Tom. Easiest enough for my end users to do themselves and I still have the version history.

I found it. The missing DLL was in C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\15\ISAPI\Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ServerRuntime.dll But wasn't registered on VS, so you need to manually browse to the file.

Set the DocumentSet.Folder.Item.ProgId to "SharePoint.DocumentSet". Right now it will be empty. See this for more information: http://www.sharepointnadeem.com/2011/08/sharepoint-2010-document-sets.html UPDATE Here is the sample PowerShell code. I haven't however tested it: $web = Get-SPWeb http://yoursite $list = $web.Lists["YourList"] $docSetName = "...

In reality, no. You will need a content migration tool to effectively do this without loss of data fidelity or metadata. For example, if you were to copy documents using the Explorer view, you would lose the modified time, who the document was created by, and so forth.

The approach for this scenario is: don't. None of what you're suggesting is supported. Instead, build a new farm and restore the Content Databases/Service Application databases.

Your best option is to move the site collection you want to migrate into it's own content DB with the Move-spsite command. Then use the DB attach method to migrate the site. Another option would be to use a third party tool, like ShareGate or Metalogix Content Matrix to migrate the site collection.

Migration of controls developed using custom code has always been a problem, not when you migrate to newer versions but also when you move them to another server or on another farm. The only reason "I KNOW OF or Experienced" Site Definitions create problems while migrating is because they can have different components in them, so when you deploy them to a ...

Migration of the SSP is not required. In many cases I had clients that were not really using the user profiles extensively in 2007 so in those cases we configured a user profile service fresh and did not upgrade the SSP. The things to think about that could be lost are: Custom User Profile Properties that were defined; they would have to be defined again. ...

Are you missing custom solutions in your new 2010 farm, that exist in the 2007 farm? Compare the installed features/solutions in both farms. However, you really should upgrade to SP2. The preupgradecheck stsadm command was added in SP2 and is very good at identifying where you're going to have issues. The upgrade alone may even solve your problems.
