Re: Migrating/Upgrading - What you need to know

The link to the external document "Nintex for SharePoint 2016 Upgrade Guide" refers to "http://help.nintextest.com/en-US/nintex2016/current/Default.htm#NW-Upgrade/aa-top-upgradeguide.htm" which is an internal domain for testing purposes and can't be reached from the Internet.

Re: Migrating/Upgrading - What you need to know

Hi,
I am missing the information, about the best practice to migrate the both Nintex configuration databases (workflow and forms) from the old SP2013 to a new SP2016 farm. The SP2016 farm was build up from scratch, the SharePoint ContentDatabases are migrated via database attach method.  Should the old Nintex Configuraton Databases be migrated, or it's better to use new configuration databases?

Thanks,

 Lutz

Re: Migrating/Upgrading - What you need to know

Greetings Lutz,


It is best to use existing Nintex databases.  Oftentimes on the Nintex Workflow Configuration databases, there are site collections that have stored or store Workflow history.  Besides that, Nintex Workflow Configuration database contains User Defined Actions, Workflow Constants and Workflow Schedules.


If you need more help on this, please feel free to open a case with Nintex Support.

Re: Migrating/Upgrading - What you need to know

Hello Pavel, 

We are planning to upgrade to SharePoint and Nintex Workflow 2016 from 2013 and currently have an upgrade testing lab where we installed a new SharePoint 2016 farm, I am facing some errors regarding Nintex Worfklow 2013 solutions and weparts during the Web application content database attach, we would like to know if we have to install Nintex Workflow 2013 first, to get rid of the errors, or if the errors will be solved just by installing Nintex Worfklow 2016

Also I would like to ask, if we use a new Nintex Workflow Configuration databases what will happen to the workflows we created in the 2013 environment, will they be available and work in the 2016 environment?

Thank you!

Greetings Enrique,

For SharePoint 2016, you will need to install Nintex Workflow 2016.  

All workflows you create in Nintex 2013 will work on Nintex 2016 in SharePoint 2016.  

If you need further help on this please let me know, or open a support case where I can also assist you.

Kind regards,
