FSU SharePoint 2010 Upgrade TIMELINE December 1 st 2011: Preview versions of current SharePoint 2007 intranet sites are available to preview event participants. December 5 th 2011 – January 13 th 2012: Preview versions of current SharePoint 2007 sites are available to all site administrators for review and verification. Monday, January 16 th, 2012: Official migration of current SharePoint 2007 intranet sites will occur. Expected downtime will be approx. 4 hours.
FSU SharePoint 2010 Upgrade PREVIEW SITES IN SHAREPOINT 2010 Copies of all SharePoint 2007 intranet sites are now available for site review in the SharePoint 2010 environment. These copies are for testing purposes only, and will not be the final upgraded versions of current intranet sites. These include any sites which have the “[department].intranet.fsu.edu” naming convention (i.e. https://president.intranet.fsu.edu).
FSU SharePoint 2010 Upgrade PREVIEW SITES IN SHAREPOINT 2010 Copies are snapshots of the sites as they were on November 21 st, 2011. Any changes to the intranet sites since then will not be available in the preview versions. Preview versions are completely separate copies of live intranet sites. Changes to preview sites will not affect live data. Extranet sites (i.e. https://extranet.fsu.edu/sites/[department]) are not included in this upgrade.
FSU SharePoint 2010 Upgrade PREVIEW SITES IN SHAREPOINT 2010 Preview sites may be accessed using the following URL format: https://[department].sp10intranet.fsu.edu/ EXAMPLE https://president.intranet.fsu.edu/ (current) https://president.sp10intranet.fsu.edu/ (preview)
FSU SharePoint 2010 Upgrade PREVIEW SITES NOTES Site administrators can activate the SharePoint 2010 visual enhancements by navigating to Site Actions Site Settings Visual Upgrade and selecting the Update All Sites button. Site collection administrators can activate the FSU Custom Theme and layout by navigating to Site Actions Site Settings Site Collection Administration Site Collection Features and enabling the Florida State University Custom Theme feature.
FSU SharePoint 2010 Upgrade PREVIEW SITES NOTES Certain types of hyperlinks will not work correctly in the 2010 preview sites. If the hyperlink is an absolute link in the 2007 site (i.e. http://www.server.com/subsite/index.aspx), it will still point to the same location. This can make navigation links (like menu links) point to the original 2007 site instead of the 2010 site. Relative hyperlinks (i.e. /subsite/index.aspx) will correctly point to the updated location in the 2010 preview site.
FSU SharePoint 2010 Upgrade PREVIEW SITE ISSUE TRACKING Please contact ITS SharePoint Team through the FSU Service Center at http://servicecenter.fsu.edu during the site preview period to report any issues or problems encountered with 2010 preview sites. Please include the URL of your site, specific page, web part, or list in your submitted comments that is causing an issue.
