MOSS SharePoint 2007 SSP migration to SharePoint 2010

In SharePoint 2010 there isnt any Shared Service Provider SSP. There is a recommended pathway by Microsoft for upgrading your Microsoft Office SharePoint Service  (MOSS) 2007 SSP database to SharePoint 2010.
Basically, the “SSP” in SharePoint 2010 consists of various “Service Applications”. I.e User Profile Service, Mysites (which is runs off the User Profile Service) and Managed Metadata Service.

No doubt, depending on your SSP functionality, there is excel services and the BDC which has seperate SharePoint 2010 Service Applications.

Search is now an OOTB Out of the Box ‘service’ in SharePoint 2010. I have also written other posts in this blog on Search on SharePoint 2010 with specific focus on the more superior FAST Search for SharePoint 2010.

Here is the pathway you can follow to migrate your SSP into SharePoint 2010:

Upgrade the shared services database

  1. Create an application pool for the User Profile service.
  2. Verify that the Managed Metadata service is enabled.
  3. Enable the User Profile service and upgrade the SSP database.
  4. Create a new proxy for the User Profile service application and associate it with the default proxy group.

  1. Jeremy,

    I performed the steps. However, I replaced the call to cmdlet New-SPProfileServiceApplication with a manual creation of the User profile using Central Admin.

    After I performed the migration, some of the properties, for example, ‘skills’ and ‘about me’, did not transfer. Are these properties, per chance, stored in the MOSS 2007 SSP DB? If so, I am missing the upgrade step of the MOSS 2007 SSP.

    I am not quite clear on step #3 above (“Enable the User Profile service and upgrade the SSP database.”). Am I actually upgrading the SSP from my source MOSS 2007 environment?

    I am ready to start over. But was hoping I could salvage the migration.

    Cheers!

  2. 3rd point is about make sure user profilse service applicatin is running then in the command prompt specify the restored db.
