Upgrade service applications to SharePoint 2013



Upgrade service applications to SharePoint 2013

Details: Upgrade service applications (Business Connectivity Services, Managed Metadata, Secure Store, User Profiles, Search) to SharePoint 2013.

When you upgrade from SharePoint 2010 Products to SharePoint 2013, you must use a database attach upgrade, which means that you upgrade only the content for your environment and not the configuration settings. After you have configured the SharePoint 2013 environment, and copied the content and service application databases, you can upgrade the service applications to SharePoint 2013. This article contains the steps that you take to upgrade the service applications.

A very useful Article from MS explaining in very detail about the upgrade of the service applications.

Upgrade from a SharePoint Server 2010 Standard CAL to an Enterprise CAL

This article provides information and procedures on how to upgrade from a Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 Standard client access license (CAL) to an Enterprise CAL

Enable Enterprise features on existing sites

To convert the license type to the Enterprise CAL, you enable the Enterprise features on the SharePoint Central Administration Web site. Any new sites that you create will automatically have these features. However, existing sites do not receive the Enterprise feature set until you perform the steps to enable the features on existing sites. You have to perform these procedures only one time to update all sites in the server farm.
This procedure uses a SharePoint 2010 Timer service and may take a long time to complete, depending on the number of sites in the server farm.

To enable Enterprise features for the server farm 

1.    Verify that you have the following administrative credentials:
o    To enable enterprise features, you must be a member of the Farm Administrators group on the computer that is running Central Administration.
2.    On the Central Administration Web site, click Upgrade and Migration.
3.    In the Upgrade and Patch Management section, click Enable Enterprise Features.
4.    Enter the product key, and then click OK.
After you have enabled the features for the farm, you can enable the features on existing sites in the farm.

To enable Enterprise features on existing sites by using Central Administration 

1.    Verify that you have the following administrative credentials:
o    To enable enterprise features on existing sites, you must be a member of the Farm Administrators group on the computer that is running Central Administration.
2.    On the Central Administration Web site, click Upgrade and Migration.
3.    In the Upgrade and Patch Management section, click Enable Features on Existing Sites.
4.    On the Enable Features on Existing Sites page, select the Enable all sites in this installation to use the following set of features check box, and then click OK.

To enable Enterprise features on existing sites by using Windows Power Shell
 
1.    Verify that you meet the following minimum requirements: See Add-SPShellAdmin.
2.    On the Start menu, click All Programs.
3.    Click Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products.
4.    Click SharePoint 2010 Management Shell.
5.    At the Windows PowerShell command prompt, type the following command:

Enable-SPFeature [-Identity] <FeatureID> [-URL] <site URL>
Where:
o    <Identity> specifies the name of the feature or GUID to install.
o    <URL> specifies the URL of the Web application, site collection, or Web site for which the feature is being activated.

Verification:

Use the following procedure to verify that the enterprise features have been enabled on existing sites.
To verify that enterprise features are enabled on existing sites
1.    Verify that you have the following administrative credentials:
o    To verify that enterprise features are enabled on existing sites, you must be a member of the Farm Administrators SharePoint group on the computer that is running Central Administration.
2.    On the site collection Web site, on the Site Actions menu, click Site Settings.
3.    On the Site Settings page, in the Site Administration section, click Site features.

In the Status column for SharePoint Server Enterprise Site features, ensure that Active appears.

The following sites are using templates that are not yet supported after upgrade (or) Sites that rely on these templates cannot be upgraded at this time, preventing upgrade of this site collection

Issue: when we upgrade any site from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013 and that site contains custom site definitions, we face the issue.

Solution: Ensure to follow the steps below to resolve the issue.

1.   Both versions of the site definitions (14 and 15) need to be present  in respective hives at the time of performing upgrade. If either of them is not there then the above error will show up.

2.   Uninstall > Remove  and  Add > Install. This had removed the previous site definition files (one and template folder) from 14 hive and added latest files to 15 hive.
