Migrating User Profiles with MySites

User Profiles can be migrated with the MySites, then later be converted into audiences. When migrating MySites, any custom User Profile properties will only be migrated if the following conditions are met:

§The User Profile property from the source has already been created on the target before migration.

§The target side User Profile property has the same property name as it did on the source.

§The target side User Profile property has the same property type as it did on the source.

When migrating User Profiles to an Office 365 Tenant target, the following limitations apply:

§Any Quick Links on the source profile will not be migrated.

§Any Privacy settings in the profile settings will not be migrated.

§If a profile picture is set on the source profile, it will not be migrated.

Procedure for Migrating MySites

To initiate a MySites migration:

1.In Explorer View, navigate to the (Farm" or "Web app") connection from which you want to copy MySites.

2.Right-click and choose Copy MySites.

3.Select the target node.

4.Right-click and choose Paste MySites followed by the desired MySite copy type:


§Paste MySites (Admin Mode) - This mode is the standard MySite copy mode and requires the set of migration permissions described in Required Permissions for Migrating MySites. This will migrate any selected MySites, including any User Profiles and other content (documents, images, etc.) that exists on the selected MySite.

NOTE:  This is the only option that is available when migrating into an O365 environment, using the Office 365 Tenant connection type.

§Paste MySites (Self Service Mode) - This mode is for use with the "Self Service" feature that is available in 2007 and 2010 versions of SharePoint. The Self Service mode allows for MySites to be created, even if the user does not have the set of migration permissions as described in Required Permissions for Migrating MySites. on the target. In order for this option to work there are two conditions that must be met. The first is that the "Self Service" feature must first be enabled on the target side, and the second is that that target connection must be made to the MySite host site address using a Web App connection.

This option is not available for the MySite Options tab when migrating to Office 365 Tenant environments.
