The SharePoint Pre-Migration Report function scans your source SharePoint Farm and/pr SharePoint Site Collection and identifies potential problems that would prevent their migration into SharePoint. A CSV is generated that identifies the issues based on analysis parameters set in the wizard. The SharePoint pre-migration report can be launched via the Migration Analysis tab of the ribbon.
NOTE: It is important to understand that a parent object (site or list) may be noted with a condition level 1 or 2 and still encounter issues during the migration. The objective of this analysis is to provide pre-migration assessment of potential issues, not to predict or guarantee the results of the actual migration.
Once you've selected an analysis type, you will be presented with its corresponding wizard which will allow you to determine the analysis parameters.
