How to create multiple sites using Site Provisioning engine. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have a requirement of moving multiple SP 2013 sites (Site Templates) to SP 2016. We cannot do that using simple .stp upload option because here the SP version is different.

    We have sites with more than 200 subsites under it, so creating manually all the subsites is not a good idea.

    I came across "Site Provisioning" which is nothing but to create sites and associated content programmatically.However, I couldn't find any good blog for that on internet. Can anybody please refer some good blog or any other advice for this purpose.

    All sites have different names and lists and libraries also have different names.

    Thanks in advance.

  • According to your comments, the requirement should be upgrading from SP2013 to 2016? If so, you can refer to the link below to upgrade using DBAttach way.

  • Hi

    as Jeff said, you can use DB dettach/attach - this is the only way. It ios prefferable to create a new farm for your SP2016 env  this way you will have the option to rollback just in case!
