Description

The Upgrade-SPOSite cmdlet activates the upgrade process for the specified SharePoint Online site collection. This cmdlet can also be used to resume failed upgrades.

When upgrade is initiated, it can either be a build-to-build or version-to-version upgrade. The default is build-to-build upgrade. When in version-to-version upgrade, site collection health checks are first run in repair mode to ensure that the site collection can be upgraded successfully.

You must be a SharePoint Online global administrator and a site collection administrator to run the cmdlet.

For permissions and the most current information about Windows PowerShell for SharePoint Online, see the online documentation at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=251832 (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=251832).
