Upgrading from CopyMove 2007

Top  Previous  Next

CopyMove 2007 can only be installed to SharePoint 2007 servers. It cannot be installed to SharePoint 2010 servers! Hence, upgrading from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010 also requires an upgrade of CopyMove 2007 to CopyMove 2010. Migrated site collections that have not been upgraded and still runs as SharePoint 2007 site collections are also supported by CopyMove 2010.

Upgrading from CopyMove 2007 to CopyMove 2010 is straight forward:

1.Leave CopyMove 2007 installed in the SharePoint 2007 farm.
2.Install CopyMove 2010 to the SharePoint 2010 farm before migrating any of the SharePoint 2007 content databases. You will otherwise get warnings of missing feature templates in the site collections where CopyMove 2007 was activated.
3.Backup, restore and attach the SharePoint 2007 content database(s) to the SharePoint 2010 farm. SharePoint will then upgrade the database(s).
4.Visual upgrade the SharePoint 2007 site collections to SharePoint 2010 site collections when applicable. CopyMove 2010 works with both UI versions.
