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


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


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


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

Best Practices

The Technical Documentation portal provides various support documents, including the Performance Optimization Guide, which provides an overview for users on understanding the architecture of Essentials, and the best practices for optimizing Essentials' performance.

Tabs and User Interface

Hyper Mode performs bulk migration from Non-SharePoint Locations to Office 365 Locations and between Office 365 locations. This feature is only available through the Drive's tab migration wizards not directly from the Navigator.


NOTE: Only one hyper migration/backup job can run at a time.


Post Migration Logs

Once a Migration is completed, users have the option to View Logs, which provide an overview, for all users, of the content that was part of the migration, and whether it did or did not migrate successfully. This window can be accessed by selecting "View Log" from the summary window, which pops up upon the completion of a migration.
