SharePoint Pre-Migration Report

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.
Migration Analysis 11

info

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.

§List Analysis Parameters

§Item Analysis Parameters

info

NOTE: The analysis parameters have default settings that scan for files that are outside of the out of the box parameters for SharePoint. You can make changes to the default parameter settings in the wizard in the event that your SharePoint environment has been customized to allow for files outside of SharePoint's original parameters. The pre-migration analysis works for file systems and file shares that can be mounted as a networked drive.

5.Select "Finish" to begin the Pre-Migration Analysis.

Site Analysis Parameters

The Following applies to SharePoint Pre-Migration Analysis only.
migration analysis 7

Site Templates
Site and List Templates used in the source environment must be available in the target if the tool is going to create new sites or lists during the operation. To ensure all in use templates are available, this option will scan each site and list to identify the template type. If a Target Location was specified, then the analysis will compare the list of used templates in the source against the list of available templates in the target location. If a template is marked as Condition 3, it was not detected as an available template in the target location. If a Target Location was not specified, then the analysis will identify and highlight templates based on a pre-determined list of out of the box SharePoint templates. If a template is marked as Condition 3, it was not recognized as an out of the box template.

Site Features
Site Features can provide additional functionality to SharePoint. To ensure site features are available, this option will scan each site to identify which features have been activated. If a Target Location was specified, then the analysis will compare the list of activated features in the source against the list of available features in the target location. If a feature is marked as Condition 3, it was not detected as an available feature in the target location. If a Target Location was not specified, then the analysis will identify and highlight features based on a pre-determined list of out of the box SharePoint features. If a feature is marked as Condition 3, it was not recognized as an out of the box feature.

Web Parts
Web Parts allow users to modify the behavior and appearance of SharePoint pages. To ensure web parts are available, this option will scan each page to identify which web parts have been placed.

The analysis will identify and highlight web parts based on a pre-determined list of out of the box SharePoint web parts. If a web part is marked as Condition 3, it was not recognized as an out of the box web part.

Site Master Pages
Master Pages in SharePoint allow for the customization of the interface and layout which are then applied to the individual pages. When migrating SharePoint sites, it is important to understand which sites have Master Pages applied as this can be used as a good indicator of customizations. To verify the presence of Master Pages, this option will scan each site to identify which have been applied as Site and System Master Pages. If a Target Location was specified, then the analysis will search the Master Page Gallery in the destination for the availability of this page. If the result is reported as a Condition Level 3 it was not found in the destination. If a Target Location was not specified, then the analysis will identify and highlight Master Pages based on the version of SharePoint. If the result is reported as a Condition Level 3, it was not recognized as an out of the box Master Page for this version of SharePoint.

Include Sub Sites
Enabling this option will also include all accessible sub-sites below the defined "Source Location" in SharePoint.

info

NOTE: If a large number of sub-sites exist, enabling this option could slow down the analysis.
