<(RM) Support tip> Upgrade Patch from Sharepoint 2010 and HPE RM 8 to Sharepoint 2013 and HPE CM 9

Incident description :

Sites may want to find out if they should upgrade HPE RM first or Sharepoint first when looking at upgrade from HPE RM 8 and Sharepoint 2010 to HPE CM 9 and Sharepoint 2013.

Resolution               : 

Definitely needs to upgrade Sharepoint 2010 to Sharepoint 2013 before upgrading  HPE RM 8 to HPE CM 9.  The reason is that Sharepoint 2010 is not supported by HPE CM 9.

When upgrading from Sharepoint 2010 to Sharepoint 2013 , things to consider :

The HPRM SharePoint integration for SharePoint 2010 is a legacy product. It is not possible to use the HPRM Governance and Compliance app in SharePoint 2010, only 2013.

If the intention is to upgrade to SharePoint 2013 and use the post 8.X app, you must:

1. Remove the legacy HPRM SharePoint integration from SharePoint 2010
2. Upgrade SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013
3. Install the HPRM Governance and Compliance app

More information regarding to how to remove legacy HPE RM Sharepoint integration from Sharepoint 2010 is given in the Installation guide for HPE RM 8 and Sharepoint 2013 integration.
