I followed the instructions in this guide:
http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/663663/Live-Migration-of-SharePoint-2010-to-SharePoint-20?msg=4739463#xx4739463xx

Due to not being able to use the interal copy function I just copied the DB manually via command line.

I am able to get the WSS-Content DB with all of my sites into the 2013 installation. But when I try to access the sites I get the following error:

Error
An unexpected error has occurred.

in the log this corresponds to:

But the sites are listed in the content database "Current Number of sites" number on the central administration page. It lists there are 4 sites....

Any ideas?

Did you have any custom solutions deployed in the 2010 farm and if so, are they now deployed to 2013?  Was your 2010 web app using claims auth?  Can you access <url>/_layouts/settings.aspx ?

Ok to be very honest I am a totally Sharepoint Noob. So that being said.... how do I check for custom solutions? I think windows based authentication on both old and new.

Central Admin - System Settings - Farm Solutions will show you solutions installed at the farm level.  

To check for claims in 2010, pull up a SharePoint Management Shell window on one of your farm servers and run the following:

Get-SPWebApplication | Select Name, URL, UseClaimsAuthentication


If any of them are "False", you need to migrate them to Claims, then migrate to 2013.  Or (not best practice) you can manually create a Classic Auth web app in 2013 and migrate as is to that web app.

If both are supposed to be widnows auth why do I need to change to claims first?

Because Microsoft said to :)

Claims auth is what the default is in 2013 and will likely be the only choice in the next version.  Classic auth is being deprecated.  It's better to get on claims now.  Yes both use Windows auth but the actual token is formatted differently between claims and classic.

The switch isn't that bad.  It sounds scarier than what it is.

What does changing to claims auth on a live system before copying the DB do on the user level? Would people possibly have log in issues or anything of that nature?

Yes you can have login issues.  You need to run a test prior to make sure you get the process down.  In my experience the number one issue is forgetting to set the cache accounts properly.  They must be in the "claims" format.  Do a Google search.

Doing a SharePoint upgrade/migration is a big task.  It's not something that should be taken lightly.  It will take some research, planning, and testing.

I've noticed. Although the link in my question makes it seem oh so super easy. And I am finding it's the opposite.

You have any links to guides you prefer for the migration?
