You can temporarily remove any source site collections from the migration project, if necessary. Consider, site collections cannot be removed permanently from the migration project, all existing source site collections will be added in after next discovery.
To temporarily remove sites from the migration project:
Double-check that the account migration is finished (or at least that all SharePoint users are migrated) and create the Migration task:
Caution: If this option is selected, all content of the target site is removed and replaced by source site's content! Use with extreme caution.
NOTE: Clearing of Group site collections is not supported as it will break the association with Office 365 Groups and Teams. Clearing of Group site collections will be skipped if this setting is enabled.
TIP: It is recommended by Microsoft to schedule tasks to run overnight and on weekends to reduce the workload during business hours.
The migration task is created. You can track its progress in the Tasks, view the summary on the Dashboard or monitor alerts and notifications in the Events. Events help you get relevant information in case the tasks are performed over a considerable period of time. ODM SharePoint migration processes are running if you see “Batch <x> in progress” event messages being logged approximately every 5 minutes.
On Demand Migration for Teams securely migrates Microsoft Teams and associated Office 365 groups across Office 365 tenants. You can also use this dashboard for migration of content for Microsoft Office 365 groups without Teams functionality. Microsoft Teams migration requires additional licensing.
Basic Microsoft Teams migration workflow consists of the following steps:
|1||Create Microsoft Teams migration project (created automatically with New Migration UI)|
IMPORTANT: It is not recommended to use existing user accounts as source and target Azure AD administrative accounts, because it is recommended to remove them for safety reasons after the migration will be completed. These accounts can be removed from teams as described in Finalizing the Migration.
On this step you can see names, suggested for target teams. In case you need some changes use manual mapping as described below. There are no provision on the target on this step.
TIP: Organize teams in collections to streamline the provision and migration process
|4||Export teams mapping to CSV file|
You can use manual mapping to migrate source team to the target team with another name. If the channel do not exist, it will be provisioned. Also you can use manual mapping to merge several source teams to one target team.
These accounts can be removed from teams as described in Finalizing the Migration.
Migrate / merge all conversations (including inline content) from the source to target channels.
|8||Re-migrate teams to incorporate supported changes made after the migration task (step 7) was started.|
|9||Monitor the progress and track issues|
IMPORTANT: Teams migration from one education tenant to another is partially supported. The following private team types are currently supported for education templates (all supported content can be migrated):
During provision the teams with the same type will be created in the target tenant.
Provisioning of public teams is not supported for migration scenarios from one education tenant to another.
OneNote Staff Notebook, OneNote Class Notebook, OneNote PLC Notebook, and Assignment app migration is not currently supported.
Personal OneNote notebook linked to a Teams channel and the OneNote tab linked to another team are not currently supported.
Links to files in migrated messages are not supported in case these links point to files located outside the default SharePoint URL. These links are missing in the target.
