Matching and Mapping Site Collections

When site collection discovery is completed and before you migrate the site collections and descendant objects to the target tenant, the OnDemand Migration for SharePoint service must know where to migrate the site collections. There are two ways you can provide the reference:

See the Considerations for details about migration behavior if the target site collection or sub-site exists before the migration is started.

Matching Site Collections

To ensure that no data is lost or duplicated, match the source site collections with the corresponding target site collections using the Matching Task.

To match site collections automatically:

  1. Log in to Quest On Demand and choose an organization if you have set up multiple organizations.
  2. From the navigation pane, click Migration to open the My Projects list.
  3. Create a new project or select an existing project.
  4. Click SharePoint. The Dashboard opens.
  5. Click SharePoint Contents from the Dashboard ribbon to open the SharePoint Contents list page.
  6. Choose one or more site collections by selecting the respective check box for the site collection. You can select the check box in the column header to select all site collections.

  7. Click Match from the Actions ribbon. The New Matching Task wizard opens.
  8. Step 1: Schedule
    1. Choose from one of three options to schedule the task. The scheduler will be activated after you complete the task wizard.
      • Run now - the task will run immediately.
      • Run later - the task must be started manually.
      • Schedule - specify a future date and time to run the task.
    2. Select the Include site structure check box to allow sub-sites and other descendant structures to be matched.
    3. Click Next.
  9. Step 2: Summary
    1. Verify the task specifications as described below:
      1. Name - name of the task. You can specify a custom name.
      2. Source tenant - name of the tenant where the source URLs exist.
      3. Target tenant - name of the tenant where the source URLs may or may not exist.
      4. Scheduled start - date and time when the task will start. Now indicates that the task will start immediately.
      5. Include site structure - option to match sub-sites and other descendant structures.
    2. Click Back to revise or review a previous step or click Finish to complete the task wizard and start the task as scheduled.
  10. You can track the progress in the Tasks tab, monitor alerts and notifications in the Events tab and view the summary on the Dashboard.
  11. When the task completes, the SharePoint Contents list is updated. Compare the Source Urlcolumn with the Target Url column for the selected sites. The object state of each matched site is set to Matched.

Mapping Site Collections

To change the name of a migrated site collection or relocate the root site, use a CSV file to set up a custom map. URLs in a mapping file are case sensitive and must be relative URLs. There are three ways to prepare a CSV site mapping file.

NOTE: Site collections cannot be merged or reorganized with a mapping file.

  1. Download the CSV file from the SharePoint Admin Center
    1. Log in to the SharePoint Admin Center of the source tenant.
    2. From the navigation pane, click Active sites.
    3. From the Active sites page menu, click Export to download the CSV file.
    4. In the CSV file, delete all columns before the URL column. Rename the URL column header to either SourceURL or Source URL. This must be the first column.
    5. In the Source URL column keep only the sites that you want to map. Ensure that only relative URLs are used.
    6. Insert a blank column as the second column and specify the header as either TargetURL or Target URL. This must be the second column.
    7. Specify the corresponding target URLs. Ensure that only relative URLs are used.
  2. Download the CSV file from the SharePoint Contents page
    1. Choose one or more sites by selecting the respective check box for the site. You can select the check box in the column header to select all sites.
    2. Click Export from the Actions ribbon.
    3. Extract the CSV file from the downloaded ZIP file.
    4. In the CSV file, delete all columns before the Source URL column. This must be the first column.
    5. Insert a blank column as the second column and specify the header as either TargetURL or Target URL. This must be the second column.
    6. Specify the corresponding target URLs. Ensure that only relative URLs are used.
  3. Create a new CSV file and specify the column header in the first row and then enter the URLs in the subsequent rows manually. Since URLs in a mapping file are case sensitive, this method must be used with caution.
    1. In the first column, specify the header as either SourceURL or Source URL.
    2. In the second column, specify the header as either TargetURL or Target URL.
    3. Enter the source and target URLs manually in the subsequent rows . Ensure that only relative URLs are used.

NOTE: You need to map only the URLs that will change in the target Tenant.

Example 1 - The Target URL is used to rename a site collection from the source tenant.

  • The URL /sites/StarzBrand has been renamed to /sites/StarzCorporate.
  • The URL /sites/StarzAccounting has been renamed to /sites/StarzFinance.
  • The URL /sites/Starzmarketing has been renamed to /sites/StarzMarketing.
  • The URL /sites/Starzteam has been renamed to /sites/StarzTeam.

Example 2 - The target URL is used to relocate the root site.

The root URL is relocated to a managed site in the target tenant called /sites/oldroot.

To map site collections with a CSV file:

  1. Log in to Quest On Demand and choose an organization if you have set up multiple organizations.
  2. From the navigation pane, click Migration to open the My Projects list.
  3. Create a new project or select an existing project.
  4. Click SharePoint. The Dashboard opens.
  5. Click SharePoint Contents from the Dashboard ribbon to open the SharePoint Contents list page.
  6. Click More Actions from the Actions ribbon and then click Map from File. The New Mapping from File Task wizard opens.
  7. Step 1: Mapping File
    1. Click Browse and locate the CSV mapping file.
    2. Click Open in the File Explorer window to load the file into the wizard
    3. Click Next.
  8. Step 2: Schedule
    1. Choose from one of three options to schedule the task. The scheduler will be activated after you complete the task wizard.
      • Run now - the task will run immediately.
      • Run later - the task must be started manually.
      • Schedule - specify a future date and time to run the task.
    2. Click Next.
  9. Step 3: Summary
    1. Verify the task specifications as described below:
      1. Name - name of the task. You can specify a custom name.
      2. Source tenant - name of the tenant where the source URLs exist.
      3. Target tenant - name of the tenant where the target URLs may or may not exist.
      4. Scheduled start - date and time when the task will start. Now indicates that the task will start immediately.
    2. Click Back to revise or review a previous step or click Finish to complete the task wizard and start the task as scheduled.
  10. You can track the progress in the Tasks tab, monitor alerts and notifications in the Events tab and view the summary on the Dashboard.
  11. When the task completes, the SharePoint Contents list is updated. Compare the Source Urlcolumn with the Target Url column for the selected sites. The object state of each matched site is set to Matched.

 

Migrating Site Collections

Use the SharePoint contents tab to migrate SharePoint objects (sites, lists, web, members). You can migrate an entire site or initiate granular or incremental migration. You can navigate through SharePoint site objects and identify any site objects that failed to migrate.

In this topic:

About object and content states

Use the Object state and Content state properties in the SharePoint Contents list page to determine the state of any SharePoint object in the migration process.

Object state

Use the object state property to track the object itself. When the object is added to On Demand its status is discovered. When discovered you can trigger a migration: Starting a Migration.

State Description
Discovered On Demand has discovered the object at the source.
Matched On Demand has matched a site on the source URL with a corresponding site on the target URL.
Provisioned On Demand has created (updated) the SharePoint object (site, web, list, users and groups) on the target without warnings or errors. You are now ready to track the content state.
Provisioned with issues On Demand has created (updated) the object with warnings or errors. See Issues: warnings and errors.
Content state

Use the On Demand content state property to track the progress of migrating the SharePoint object's content. Note that the content state value is transient (may change) while the task status is in progress.

State Description
Not Migrated On Demand has not migrated the content. This is the default content state when the object state is Discovered.
Migrating On Demand is migrating the object content.
Migrated On Demand has successfully migrated the content to the target without warning or errors. If the object is a list then all the list items have migrated successfully. If the object is a SharePoint site or web (root site) then all the child lists and webs have migrated successfully.
Partially Migrated While a migration task is in progress, partially migrated can be a transitory state showing at least one child is migrating or not migrated. Once the migration task is complete, partially migrated indicates that not all children of the object migrated: at least one child migrated and at least one child did not migrate.
Migrated with Issues On Demand has migrated the content to the target with warnings or errors. See Issues: warnings and errors.
The transient nature of the object and content states during migration

When migrating a site the web and list task status will be set to complete when the web or list object state is set to provisioned. This is expected behavior in the current implementation. It indicates that the sub task to provision the object is complete. The Content State will not go to migrated until the child content is migrated

When migrating a site or web, the content state may be set to migrated and then reset to partially migrated. This will typically happen for a site that had not had the SharePoint content discovery run before migration is started. In this case the migration is discovering content to migrate as it goes along. The content state is set to migrating when the migration completes what it has discovered so far, then it looks for more and resets to partially migrating, repeating until all content is discovered and migrated. It discovers lists in a web in groups (not all at once) and then it discovers any sub sites after the lists are done.

Starting a Migration

Any discovered SharePoint object (object state = discovered) can be migrated including sites, lists (including individual lists) and webs (root and child webs). All children of the object selected for migration will be migrated.

Caution: Don’t start the migration before the discovery task (Discovering Site Collections) is finished. It might result in incorrect processing of migrated objects.

To start a SharePoint migration

From the SharePoint contents tab

  1. Locate the SharePoint object.
  2. Check the object. You can check multiple objects to migrate multiple objects.
  3. Click MIGRATE to open the New Migration Task wizard.

NOTES:

  • When migrating multiple SharePoint sites, it is best practice to add no more than 10 sites to a migration task to avoid creating a large load that may trigger throttling in the Microsoft export interfaces.
  • Creating and running multiple migration tasks at the same time may create a large load that may trigger throttling in the Microsoft export interfaces.
  • If the parent of the object selected for migration does not already exist on the target then migration will be skipped.
  • Migration of a site or web will do a full migration of all child lists (not incremental) and discovery of any new child web or list.
