Maintenance Issues



Completion Notes


Error migrating custom content type when it inherits from type "Unknown Document Type" -  Warning: The content type is read only

This has been changed to use the content type returned from the add to interact with our added content types.


Not Preserving Deleted AD Users when using Claims Authentication on target SP 2010

Deleted AD users are now properly preserved when migration to a SP 2010 Target using Claims Authentication.


OOB Fields that have Display Name and/or Type changed, changes do not get migrated.

OOB fields that were modified will now migrate properly.


Migration Manager for SharePoint Version History is not preserved properly under some circumstances


Alert Time does not migrated correctly when "Site Level" Regional Setting is applied.

Alert times now correctly migrate according to the site's regional setting's timezone.


Retrieving version history of list items from the NWS adaptor results in data "shifting" when no data exists for certain fields in older versions

Fixed an issue where version reading in the NWS could assign data to the wrong version in rare circumstances.

The implementation looks fine, but it's not thread safe.


Restoring of SQL backup file and the consequent restore option with a lot of sites around 20000 and above take a long time for populating a few hours

The restore point identification algorithm should now perform better for farms with a large number of site collections.


Migration Manager for SharePoint Issue with columns that have the same first 20 characters

Issue resolved.


Taxonomy Options should be disabled for SharePoint Foundation 2010 target

Taxonomy Options are now disabled for SharePoints which do not support Managed Metadata.


Default Features Not Being Cleared on Target SP 2010 Sites

Choosing the "Clear Default Features on Target" option when copying a site from SharePoint 2003 will now result in all features being deactivated on the newly created site since 2003 does not have features. Note that this does not apply for copies using the Native Web Services adapter which does not support the activation/deactivation of features.

Issue resolved.


User mapping is not applied to the target site creation when copying MySites using the Copy Server Elements operation

A line was added linking to the Support Web Portal (for filing a ticket).
All of these changes were also made to the "Getting Help" page in each Documentation CHM file, and the CHM's were recompiled. This includes SharePoint Edition, all ECMs and Selective Restore.
