Upgrading from CopyMove 2010

Top  Previous  Next

CopyMove 2010 can only be installed to SharePoint 2010 servers. It cannot be installed to SharePoint 2013 servers! Hence, upgrading from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013 also requires an upgrade of CopyMove 2010 to CopyMove 2013. Migrated site collections that have not been upgraded and still runs as SharePoint 2010 site collections are also supported by CopyMove 2013. However, it requires that the two WSP solutions sharepointproducts_platform2010.wsp and sharepointproducts_copymove2010.wsp are also deployed to the SharePoint 2013 farm. The CopyMove installation script will deploy them after a confirmation.

Upgrading from CopyMove 2010 to CopyMove 2013 is straight forward:

1.Leave CopyMove 2010 installed in the SharePoint 2010 farm.
2.Install CopyMove 2013 to the SharePoint 2013 farm before migrating any of the SharePoint 2010 content databases. You will otherwise get warnings of missing feature templates in the site collections where CopyMove 2010 was activated.
3.Backup, restore and attach the SharePoint 2010 content database(s) to the SharePoint 2013 farm. SharePoint will then upgrade the database(s).
4.Upgrade the SharePoint 2010 site collections to SharePoint 2013 site collections when applicable. CopyMove 2013 works with both UI versions.

Note: The license key for CopyMove 2010 also works with CopyMove 2013 provided that the support and upgrade subscription has not expired.
