Site Owner Checklist for Site Collection Migration to Sharepoint 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am getting ready for a migration from SharePoint 2010 to 2013. I wanted to create a checklist for Site Owners so they can prepare their team sites for migration to the new 2013 platform. Does anyone have a "go to" site or link /article that details the necessary/important steps a Site Owner has to take for migration of Team Sites to SharePoint 2013? I found some but just wanted to know what notes some of you guys had.

  • Hi,

    If you want to migrate from SharePoint 2010 to 2013, you can follow the steps below. What site owners need to do is the phase 5 of the upgrade process.

    To upgrade a site collection, site owners can follow the steps below:

    1. Run the site collection health checks to verify the site is ready to upgrade.


    2. Create an upgrade evaluation site to preview the differences between versions. (Optional)

    3. Upgrade the site collection.


    4. Verify that upgrade was successful and the site works as expected. For more information, see Review site collections upgraded to SharePoint 2013.

    More detailed steps and information for your reference:
