OK everyone, I got myself a little stuck on something. We upgraded SP 2007 to 2010 in test, planned the production upgrade and upgraded production using the database attach approach, everything went pretty well except...
Users complained pretty quickly that their 'My Links' were missing and that the profile information they had previousely entered was gone... hmmm... we didn't actually check that stuff during testing, oops.
Well looking at the documentation I 'quickly' realized I had missed a step during the upgrade, both in test and prod; I never upgraded the SSP database. I created a new profile service, synch'd with AD, managed meta data service is working, upgraded the
mysite content databases and bam, everything was good, or maybe not so good because I'm missing profile information that was manually entered by users.
So of course all the documentation says you need to attach that SSP database during the creation of the Profile Service, well I'm not recreating my profile service... no way. Is it to late to upgrade the SSP database? Do my users just need to start with
fresh profiles and suck it up or is there some way I can get that profile data into my new environment?
