OneDrive Management

The ability to mass provision OneDrive locations on behalf of end users can be initiated from the OneDrive Management button in the ribbon.  This function is only available for users who have access to an Office 365 Global Administrator login and password and have the OneDrive for Business functionality included in their license.

5.Once the list of users is loaded, click the Check for users personal sites button located above the table.  This option will check each user to determine if they are valid and if they currently have an OneDrive for Business provisioned.  Depending on the amount of users, this may take a few seconds to several minutes to complete.

6.You can select the user accounts which are valid and that do not currently have a provisioned OneDrive. For ease of use, you can click the Cleanup Result button to remove all invalid users and users with currently provisioned OneDrives from the results table. The remaining list of users are those that are capable of having OneDrives provisioned.
 
You can also perform the following actions:
 
Check if application installed - Clicking this button will check the selected OneDrive for Business sites to determine if the App for SharePoint "Metalogix Essentials for Office 365" is currently deployed.
Install Application - Clicking this button will deploy the App for SharePoint "Metalogix Essentials for Office 365" to the selected OneDrive for Business sites.
Uninstall Application - Clicking this button will remove the App for SharePoint "Metalogix Essentials for Office 365" from the selected OneDrive for Business sites.
Owners - Will display the current list of all Owners of each OneDrive displayed in the table.
Remove Owners - Enter a valid user account to remove from the Owner permission (Site Collection Administrator) of all the listed OneDrives for Business sites. If you want to remove this user from only a select list of OneDrives, check the box next to each OneDrive and then click "Check for users personal sites" first before proceeding with this removal. Every OneDrive displayed in the list will have this account removed as a Site Collection Administrator, excluding their own personal OneDrive for Business site.
Add Owners - Enter a valid user account to add as an Owner (Site Collection Administrator) of all the listed OneDrives for Business sites. If you want to add this user to only a select list of OneDrives, check the box next to each OneDrive and then click "Check for users personal sites" first before proceeding with this addition. Every OneDrive displayed in the list will have this account added as a Site Collection Administrator.

7.Click Finish to begin the operation.

Progress Tab

The Progress tab, located in the Contents pane area, provides detailed information about each single current user's migration status. As one user's migration is finished, the progress bar will reach 100 %.

info

NOTE: For Azure Turbo Synchronized migration, the progress bar will wait until all of the Azure jobs are finished and synchronization of Azure logs is completed.  As one user's migration is finished, the next one will be started and the same process will continue.

To find information about accounts that have already bee copied, go to the Hyper Migration tab, and click Refresh to get a list of all the current jobs. For more information about Hyper Migration, please see this section.

Drives Progress Bar 1

Hyper Migration

The Hyper Migration Tab is where all hyper migration jobs are saved and displayed.

info

NOTE:

·Hyper Migration is currently only available for Migrations where the source is Dropbox, FileShare, Box, OneDrive, or Google Drives.

·Truncating Long Paths in Hyper Migration works only for folders, file names are not changed. There are no overflow folders, no changes to folder structure, and no MD5 checked sum algorithms - the folder names are simply cut down to 400 characters.

Column Title

Description

Icon

Indicates whether the migration was successful. A green check-mark indicates a successful migration. A Pause icon indicates that the migration was either paused or some of the items failed to migrate.

Hyper Migration Type

Indicates the type of migration that was used.

Started

Indicates when the migration was started for each user.

Source User

Indicates the source user or path.

Target User

Indicates the target user or path.

Summary Record

Is a summary of the content that was migrated - this includes the successful, warning, and failed states for migrated content, as well as size and duration information.

Duration

Indicates the time spent on the migration. If it is an Azure Turbo Synchronized migration, then a double record will appear - indicating the time spent on creating the Azure Turbo job and the uploading of the content to Azure, as well as the time spent for Azure Turbo to finish and refresh its logs.

Recommended Configuration

In order for Essentials Drives to provide optimal performance on your hyper migrations, it is recommended that users set the configuration settings based on their work machine's hardware and Ethernet connection.  These settings can be accessed in the Essentials.ini file, where the Essentials tool is installed (C:\Program Files\Quest\Essentials\Essentials.ini).

The following are the settings available for configuration:

· -DeMigrationPoolSize: This is the number of parallel threads that the tool will run to read from the source and then upload to the target. Note that this value is used for both 'Read from source' and 'Write to target' operations while in CSOM mode, while only for Read operations when in Azure Turbo mode. It is critical that resources are allocated appropriate (CPU, RAM and Internet speed) to match an increase of thread count since the content size increases rapidly as each thread load is multiplied by the Chunk Size settings.

·-DeMigrationChunkSize: This number dictates how many packages are to be copied from the source and then uploaded to the target in one thread. Note that this value is used for both 'Read from source' and 'Write to target' operations while in CSOM mode, while only for Read operations when in Azure Turbo mode.

·-DazurePacketMaxCapacity: This value is used for 'Write to target' operations while in Azure Turbo mode. This number dictates how many objects are to be created in Azure Storage within one package. Ensure that the number of packages are limited to have less than 1000 objects and have less than 100MB within each package. This will result in a faster upload speed to Azure.

·-DazureBatchingUploadThreads: This value is used for 'Write to target' operations while in Azure Turbo mode. This number dictates how many parallel threads are to be uploaded to Azure Storage. Again, this value will change depending on CPU, RAM and Internet speed.

It is also recommended that you reserve more RAM for the Essentials tool, particularly for hyper migration purposes, setting the RAM at 8GB-16GB. See the Memory Management section for an overview of how to manage the memory used by Essentials.
