As you know, the much anticipated release of SharePoint 2016 created
lively conversations across international organizations. Possibly one of the
more interesting questions was whether organizations running SharePoint 2013 or
SharePoint 2010 need to migrate to SharePoint 2016 at all. Answering that question is something only the organization asking it can really do – by learning as much as possible on the subject. But if you are using
and creating a lot of data and products on SharePoint 2010 and considering a
direct migration from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2016, this article is for you.
I’ll present an example of how migration from SharePoint
2010 to SharePoint 2016 works, using Bamboo’s Data-Viewer web part.
How does it work?
Step 1: First of all, backup the database in SQL server on
SharePoint 2010 that includes HW37 Data-Viewer Web Part. We will retrieve the
*.bak file (Ex: HW37.bak).
Step 2: Copy and paste the *.bak file to SharePoint 2016
server (EX: C:\ HW37.bak).
3: In SP2016 server, go to the Central Administrator page, select Application
Management hyperlink on the left pane, select Web Application tab and select
Step 4: Go to Application Management again and select Manage
Next, select the web application you are using and click on
the Database Name hyperlink.
Step 5: Select the Remove Content Database checkbox and
You will see the database removed from the list.
Step 6: Open the SQL server and select Restore Database.
Select the HW37.bak file copied from SP2010 server in Step
Step 7: Run the SharePoint
2016 Management Shell as Administrator.
Run stsadm command line as below:
addcontentdb -url <URL> -databasename WSS_Content_port
Wait for the operation to successfully complete.
Step 8: Go to the SP2016 site. You will see Data-Viewer showing
an error. Don’t worry, that’s because you have not installed SP2016 Data-Viewer
onto the SP2016 server yet.
Step 9: Install Data-Viewer and select the web application you’re
Refresh page. Data-Viewer will now work as expected and all
configurations will be kept.
