Migrating an eRoom Container as a SharePoint Document Library

For eRoom deployments that almost exclusively contain documents, the logical SharePoint equivalent is to migrate them as a SharePoint Document Library. While Document Libraries cannot contain other sites or list types, they are the simplest user construct for document management

NOTE:  For deployments that contain all types of content (documents, calendars, discussion lists, and databases), other migration options are available.

To initiate an "eRoom as a SharePoint Document Library" migration:

1.In Explorer View, navigate to the eRoom or eRoom folder you want to migrate.

2.Right-click and choose the Copy eRoom Container.

3.Select the SharePoint site under which you want to create the Document Library.

4.Right-click and choose Paste eRoom Container > As Document Library.

5.Continue with Configuring Copying Options.

Migrating an eRoom as a SharePoint Site Collection

For eRoom deployments that contain all types of content (documents, calendars, discussion lists, and databases), you can migrate facilities, rooms, and folders as SharePoint site collections.

NOTE:  For deployments that contain all types of content (documents, calendars, discussion lists, and databases), almost exclusively contain documents, the logical SharePoint equivalent is to migrate them as a Document Library.

Connection icon

When migrating to SharePoint Site Collections on a SharePoint 2013 or 2016 target, only a Local Object Model (Local OM) connection can be used. This is due to some User authentication changes that have been made in beginning with SharePoint 2013, which inadvertently restrict the creation of Site Collections using the SharePoint OM remotely (i.e. the Remote Extensions Web Service connection). While these changes affect Remote OM connections, they do not affect Local OM connections.  For more information on this specific issue, please see the SharePoint 2013 and 2016 Site Collection Creation Issues in the Frequently Asked Questions section.

To initiate an "eRoom as a SharePoint site collection" migration:

1.In Explorer View, navigate to the eRoom or eRoom folder you want to migrate.

2.Right-click and choose the Copy eRoom Container.

3.Select the SharePoint server connection under which you want to create the new site collection.

4.Right-click and choose Paste eRoom Container > As Site Collection.

5.Continue with Configuring Copying Options.
