Upgrading site collection that is in SharePoint 2010 compatibility Mode to 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • What I would like to know is if you can upgrade a separate site collection on a SharePoint 2013 site that is running in 2010 compatibility mode? I have three separate site collections on a 2013 farm:

    http://main

    http://main/public

    Http://main/sites

    Can run the upgrade on JUST the http://main/public? Or do I have to upgrade all the site collections at the same time?

    Thank you.

  • Thanks for all the replies. Actually the site is a collection so I went into the site settings and was able to kick off the upgrade there. The root site did not upgrade since it is a collection also. That's what I was looking for.

  • Its migrate all site collection once you upgrade at root level. But we have cautions if any issue happened at site collection level, difficult to manage. Consider Sharegate or metalogix tool.

    Make sure that, your site collection does not have any custom webparts

  • Thanks for the reply. What I'm asking is if it all or none. Meaning I want just upgrade the collection not at the root.

  • We use Sharegate, but the whole farm is already migrated and running. All but the sites that are running in 2010 compatibility mode. And now we are starting to upgrade them to native mode. Only, some to that site owners are asking to upgrade one collection at time. We would rather upgrade the whole site at one time but just thought I would check to see if anyone has upgrade as I described.

  • Hi,

    It seems that you want to upgrade the subsites without upgrade the root site in the site collection.

    This scenario is not supported, we need to upgrade the whole site collection at a time.

    When you upgrade the MySite site collections, you also need to pay attention to the orders you choose to upgrade the MySite sites collections. The My Site Host site collection needs to be upgraded first, and then the other MySite site collections.

    Please refer to the links below for more details:
