Office 365 Admin Account Pool Utility

About the Account Pool Utility

Microsoft currently imposes various throttles in Office 365 to ensure service availability and performance for all tenants. Some of these throttles take effect when any account (including a migration admin account) initiates more than two concurrent connections. Each migration thread counts as a connection, so throttling can have a dramatic impact on migration performance to Office 365. Quest migration solutions commonly achieve optimal throughput with eight to twelve threads for migration to local targets, and potentially more threads for higher-end hardware. To achieve similar results to Office 365, separate migration admin accounts must be used to bypass the throttling limitations.

Since Microsoft’s throttle is applied per admin account, Migrator for GroupWise runs multiple admin accounts simultaneously, on separate machines, each set to migrate with only one thread at a time. The net throughput then becomes a function of the sum of all these multiple accounts’ processing threads—one per admin account. The Office 365 admin users in the pool are not assigned licenses in Office 365, so they do not consume available licenses.

Migrator for GroupWise includes an Admin Account Pool Utility that helps you manage a "pool" of Office 365 admin accounts for this purpose. The utility is designed to help you manage the admin accounts.

Necessary preparations for the Admin Account Pool Utility

Some preparations are necessary before you can use the Admin Account Pooling Utility. These steps are mandatory.

Migrator for GroupWise’s Account Pool Utility uses Microsoft Office 365 cmdlets to issue commands to Office 365, and these cmdlets must be installed before Migrator for GroupWise can use account pooling. Note these requirements before you can install the cmdlets:

You must install the MSOL Sign-in Assistant. Download and install one of the following from the Microsoft Download Center:

To install the cmdlets, double-click the AdministrationConfig.msi file.

The installer adds the program to your Start menu, and adds a shortcut to your desktop.

Migrator for GroupWise’s Account Pool Utility helps you manage account pool membership, but it does not tell the other Migrator for GroupWise applications to make use of its pool of accounts. To make use of the account pool check the Use admin account pool checkbox on the Admin-Driven Batch Migrator’s Office 365 Mail Settings screen.

The Use admin account pool checkbox is available only when Office 365 is selected as the Target Exchange System on the Admin-Driven Batch Migrator’s Select Operations screen.
