Upgrade Pipeline
Pipeline Registration
• XML Configuration Files
– 14\Config\Upgrade
– Range of product versions and schema versions to
which an upgrade applies
– Target Assembly for Upgrade
– Map files to the new 14 hive structure
– Deprecate Features
– Specifies Upgrade Order
Configuration File Example
• OsrvUpgrade.xml
• <Config xmlns="urn:Microsoft.SharePoint.Upgrade">
<Assembly Name="Microsoft.Office.Server, Version=14.0.0.0,
Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c">
<Order>3</Order> </Assembly> <FeatureUpgrade>
<DeprecateSimpleFeature Scope="Farm" Id="20529D124961-42af-966C-EC75A6AC8AAE"/> </FeatureUpgrade>
</Config>
Pipeline Hierarchy & Execution
• Microsoft.SharePoint.Upgrade
• Upgradeable Resource (System.Object)
• Upgrade Sequence (SPSequence)
– Upgrade a specific object type in the server farm
• Upgrade Action (SPAction)
– Describes an upgrade transformation
• Hierarchy Manager (SPManager)
– Manages upgrade sessions
Upgrade Sequences
• Cannot overwrite or append to default
upgrade sequences
• Consists of one or more upgrade actions
• Execution order based upon order defined in
configuration files
– Starts with lower levels first (i.e. Database before
Site)
• Provides check-pointing to allow resumption
of upgrade
Types of Sequences
• SPSequence
– Abstract class for all upgrade sequences
• SPActionSequence
– Upgrade sequence that uses upgrade actions
• SPIISWebSiteSequence
– Upgrade sequence for IIS Site
• SPDatabaseSequence
– Upgrade sequence for database
• SPSiteSequence
– Upgrade sequence for site collection
Upgrade Actions
• Actions for upgrading specific objects
–
–
–
–
–
IIS Web Sites
Databases
Site Collections
Web Applications
Servers
• Version attribute
– Sorting upgrade actions
– Specifies whether a upgrade action needs to run
– Helps with resuming interrupted upgrades
• Action updates object schema with action version number on
success
Types of Actions
• NarrowCIStage1and2
– Changes content indexes, drops and re-creates
indexes for content databases
• UpgradeAllDocStreamsAndAllDocVersions
– Where upgrade seems to hang at 18.67%
– Moves documents from AllDocVersions table to
AllDocStreams table
• UpgradeReghostAction
– Resets site to site definition
– Removes SPD customizations added to page
Upgrade Planning
The Bigger Picture
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Communications Plan
Yes, there are other things
Training Plan
to consider.
Early Tester/Pilot Group
Pre-Upgrade Activities
Upgrade Activities
Post-Upgrade Activities
Ongoing Support
Monitoring & Maintenance
Pre-Upgrade
Preparations
•
Farm Survey
– Stsadm –o preupgradecheck
•
•
Web parts, features, setup files, language packs, custom solutions, orphan sites, orphan objects,
database schema, event receivers
SharePoint 2010 Production Farm Planning & Configuration
– Move to Claims
•
•
Migrate Users
FBA (Re-configure Membership and Role Providers in web.config)
– Disable Auto Workflow Cleanup
•
If disabled in the 2007 environment make sure to disable in the 2010 environment or you may lose
workflow associations when you upgrade
– Load Test Production
•
Visual Studio 2010
– Developer Dashboard
•
On, Off, OnDemand
– Diagnostic Providers
– Health Data and Usage Collection
– Caching
•
BLOB, Object, Output
Preparations
• TEST, TEST, TEST!!!
– test-spcontentdatabase
• Restore MOSS 2007 production databases to test for
testing the preupgrade process
• Test database upgrade process in 2010 test farm
– Helps with gathering metrics and catching any missing
dependencies
– Early Testers/Pilot Group
• Capture issues that will need to be resolved in
Production as the result of user testing
Pre-Upgrade Issue Resolution
• Orphan Sites
– Stsadm –o deletesite –id “guid”
– Use stsadm –o enumallwebs to recover site id
• Orphan Objects
– Stsadm –o databaserepair –deletecorruption
– Stsadm –o deletecontentdb
– Stsadm –o addcontentdb
• Database Schema
– Stsadm –o mergecontentdbs
• Missing Features
– Stsadm –o deactivatefeature –id “guid”
– Use stsadm –o enumallwebs –includefeatures to determine
where features are referenced
Pre-Upgrade Issue Resolution
• Missing Web Parts
– Web Parts Maintenance Page (…default.aspx?Contents=1) to Remove Web
Part
– Use stsadm –o enumallwebs –includewebparts to determine where web parts
are referenced
• Missing Setup Files
– WinDiff or WinMerge
– Deploy Solutions
– Manually Copy Files
• 12 Hive and IIS Directory Differences
– WindDiff or WinMerge
• Large Lists
– Adjust custom views to display less than 5K items (configurable)
• Custom List Views
– Adjust custom views to display less than 8 lookup columns (configurable)
– Lookup and People/Group columns count as a lookup column
Other Considerations
• Verify Database Backups
• Custom Solutions
– Remove or keep?
• Does SharePoint 2010 functionality remove the need for home grown
solutions
• If you decide to keep do you upgrade or move as is?
– Sandbox or Farm?
• Code only executes in a Site Collection (Sandbox)
• 3rd Party Solutions
– Remove or keep?
• Does SharePoint 2010 functionality remove the need for any 3rd party
solutions
• Branding
– Reset vs. Re-create?
• If you decide to reset (gl-applytheme and gl-setmasterpage)
Other Pre-Upgrade Considerations
• Move to a new URL?
