Collecting Account Information

In case you use new migration UI, accounts can be enumerated using automatic discovery after the migration project creation. This task also can be created or re-run, if necessary, to incorporate the latest changes.

Before proceeding with the migration, enumerate all accounts and retrieve relevant information from the source tenant. The discovery collects all necessary account data and optional statistics on connected mailboxes for your source tenant to avoid misconfiguration and prevent possible issues.

Caution: Don’t start the migration before the discovery task is finished.

  1. Click Discover Accounts on the dashboard to create a new discovery task.
  2. To enrich the basic account information with details from Microsoft Office 365/Exchange Online, select Include statistics on mailboxes.

NOTE: Mailbox statistics discovery might be a lengthy process.

  1. Schedule when the task will be started. See Task Scheduling for details. Click Next to view the task summary.

TIP: Give informative names for the tasks. It will greatly simplify the project management and event filtering in the future.

  1. Click Finish. A new widget appears on the project dashboard to show the task status.
  2. Click the task name on the widget to see the details or use Show all link.

Once the discovery task is complete, you will see the source domain’s accounts summary on the project Dashboard and can perform Pre-Migration Assessment.

Caution: Don’t start the migration before the discovery task is finished. It might result in incorrect processing of migrated objects.

Account Migration

On Demand Migration can migrate discovered accounts and the following types of discovered groups:

  • Security groups, the ownership and membership is supported for the accounts that have a pair on the target tenant.
  • Mail-enabled security groups, including:
    • ownership ( for accounts that have a pair on the target tenant )
    • membership ( for accounts that have a pair on the target tenant )
    • visibility in GAL
  • Distribution groups, including:
    • ownership ( for accounts that have a pair on the target tenant )
    • membership ( for accounts that have a pair on the target tenant )
    • SendAs and SendOnBehalf group delegates
    • visibility in GAL
  • Azure AD Office 365 Group Type objects, the ownership and membership is supported for the accounts that have a pair on the target tenant. In case group owner has not a matched account in the target, target azure AD administrative account will only be specified as group owner. Email address for migrated Office 365 Group object will be created in default target domain. Refer to Microsoft Teams Migration for details on how to migrate Office 365 Groups with Teams functionality (associated with Teams).

IMPORTANT:Target Azure AD administrative account will be added as an owner to all target mail-enabled security groups, distribution groups and Office 365 groups.

NOTE: Migration of security groups with dynamic membership is not supported.

Basic account migration workflow consists of the following steps:

# Step
1 Create collections to streamline the migration process
2 Match accounts / groups by attribute
3

Import mapping from file

4 Migrate accounts / groups

 

Caution: Do not delete matched or migrated accounts or groups from the migration project. If you need to do this anyway, clear the matching for those accounts.

NOTE: In all cases, target groups will be owned by the target Azure AD administrative account that is used to perform the migration.

Account Migration Project Dashboard

This topic is intended for new migration UI. In case you are using classic migration UI refer to Project Dashboardfor details on Account migration project dashboard.

New Migration UI: Account Migration Dashboard

On the account migration dashboard you can:

  • Organize the accounts into collections that act as “projects within project”. The collections allow you to structure big environments.
  • Analyze your environment and find out the potential misconfiguration and problems that may adversely affect the migration.
  • View all your accounts and user data (Mail, OneDrive), sort, reorder, search, and filter them.
  • Start and manage Address Rewrite Service using Domain Coexistence widget to organize mail flow from selected source mailboxes as if the target mailbox is already used by sender.
  • Configure and enable Hybrid using Hybrid widget to migrate Azure AD accounts synchronized with on-premises AD.

note: Address Rewrite Service requires additional subscription.

  • Temporarily remove objects from the migration project
  • Track the project flow in the Tasks list.

TIP: Give informative names for the tasks. It will simplify the project management and event filtering in the future.

  • Monitor the migration process, detect, and troubleshoot the issues with the Events list.
