Migration Manager for SharePoint 2.2 Generally Available

Quest Migration Manager for SharePoint 2.2 is now generally available to customers. Download your trial version.

 

New features in 2.2 include:

 

Direct Upgrade from SharePoint 2003 to SharePoint 2010 - Migration Manager 2.2 enables direct migration and consolidation of SharePoint 2003 sites, lists and document libraries to a new SharePoint 2010 server farm. The migration process preserves settings, versions, metadata, security permissions of SharePoint 2003 content. Post-migration synchronization replicates source content changes to the target sites automatically, making sure no data is lost while users are switching to the new version. Migration Manager 2.2 supports both SharePoint Foundation 2010 and SharePoint Server 2010.

 

Post-migration Synchronization for SharePoint 2007 Migrations - Migration Manager 2.2 synchronizes changes made to the source SharePoint 2007 sites, lists and document libraries after they have been migrated to a new location. Use the new incremental sync feature to transfer only the modified content to the target SharePoint 2007 site to make sure no data is lost during transition.

 

Complete Web-based User Interface - All Migration Manager functionality is now accessible remotely in a web browser. It is not necessary to log into your SharePoint server to use the tool.

 

Other Improvements - In addition to the major features above, Migration Manager 2.2 packs in other enhancements such as:

  • Improved performance for SharePoint 2007 migrations
  • Better support for migration of SharePoint 2007 site customizations (master pages, themes, etc.)
  • More usable error reports that allow exporting detailed error information to a CSV file for further analysis
  • Up to date online help at https://www.quest.com/solutions/sharepoint/
