Metalogix Essentials for Office 365 2.4 - Advanced Installation Guide

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


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.


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.
