Auto Resume

Auto Resume allows users to set automatic resume sessions in order to bypass issues caused by Office 365 throttling. This functionality works by analyzing a hyper backup or hyper migration at the medium stage, looking for errors that occurred during migration. Once a "is not responding" error is found, the next auto resume round is started, and only objects with the "is not responding" status are re-migrated.

The number of Auto Resume attempts can be specified in in the Profile Manager.

1.In the Essentials, select the Help tab, and then Profile Manager.

2.In Profile Manager, select Hyper Migration/Backup from the left hand tab.
Auto Resume 1

3.On the right hand half of the Profile Manager window, find the "Number of Rounds" setting. This setting is set to 1 by default, which means that only one migration round will be launched and the auto-resume function is not enabled. Changing this number, to 5 for example, will cause the tool to run the first migration round, and then it will run auto resume attempts until the connection problem is solved, or up to 4 more times (for a total of 5 rounds). (This means if the connection problem is resolved by the second attempt, then auto resume will stop and have no need to run 2 more times)
Auto Resume 4

info

NOTE: Auto Resume will only retry for throttling issues and will skip issues connected with permissions, authentication, lost internet connections, and non-supported objects, etc.

info

NOTE: You can use Admin Pool in combination with Auto-Resume or use only one of the functions to solve the problem with connections to Office 365.

Admin Pool

The Admin Pool functionality uses a set of global administrators for hyper migration and hyper backup operations in order to provide a solution for Office 365 throttling issues.

This functionality allows you to provide a list of admins from within wizards, instructing Essentials to use these global admin accounts when running the hyper migration or hyper backup. The more admin accounts you provide, the more users used to send requests to Office 365, thereby reducing the pressure on the target service.

In order to add more administrators you must use the +Admin button from within the Hyper Migration or Hyper Backup wizards. This button appears in place of the Connect button, after the first global administrator has been approved. You will see a list of users from within the wizard once the admin user has been authenticated.Admins pool 1

info

NOTE: Admin pool is not supported for connection by Claims.

Tracking

You can track the admin pool in detail from within the migration logs. First, you will see the list of provided global administrators. Next, in each request, you can see the ID for each administrator used in the current request.Admins pool 2

info

NOTE: Site Collection Administrators are required to perform a hyper migration to SharePoint site (Box to SharePoint or File Share to SharePoint options) or a hyper backup of SharePoint only site.

The admin pool feature can be used in migration via the user interface, or via script. You can generate a script or create a scheduled task

Script:
