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.

  • Site collection administrators can view usage reporting by clicking Site collection usage reports in the Site Collection Administration section of the Site Settings page.
  • Site collection administrators for the SSP administration site can view a usage summary by clicking Usage summary in the Site Collection Administration section of the Site Settings page.
