I am trying to migrate sitecore items from sitecore 8.1 to Sitecore 9.0, we tried by creating package and serialization both attempts it has failed. We cant take the database backup and proceed because of the client guidelines. Can any one suggest the best approach for the same.

Thanks Shrinivasan

  • I think you are trying to take huge number of items in a single package. Divide the items in to multiple package and then it should work – Himanshu Agarwal Aug 28 '19 at 5:18
  • As @HimanshuAgarwal suggest this can be one problem but are you getting any error during this? by you mean migrate is just content or you are upgrading the Sitecore version. – Mahendra Shekhawat Aug 28 '19 at 7:28

    Explain the failures? what's happened? beside the size. keep in mind there are rights on items and references – Jan Bluemink Aug 28 '19 at 7:39

I would recommend on eof the following two approaches

  1. Install https://www.teamdevelopmentforsitecore.com/Razl and merge the content of sitecore 8.2 database to 9.0
  2. package the templates,Layouts/renderings,images,custom rules/settings,pages and content items(data source items) as seperate packages and install it on the vanilla sitecore 9 version.You can also serialize the same sections mentioned from old database and deserialize it to new database
