The (old) FastTrack tool for migrating users has finally arrived with the very intuitive name: SharePoint Migration Tool. As the name suggests it's possible to migrate SharePoint 2010/2013 files (and document libraries) but more importantly is the option to migrate File Shares.
So let's get right to it.
First of you need to head over to http://spmtreleasescus.blob.core.windows.net/install/default.htm and fetch the Sharepoint Migration Tool.
Secondly we want to install the tool:
There is also a The SharePoint Migration Assessment Tool (SMAT) available if you are migrating data from Sharepoint OnPremise. I will skip that in this article tho. But the tool will basically scan the contents of your SP environment and give you a report including links to articles if there is anything you need to fix before migrating.
Here are some screen shots showing how the migration process looks. I will explain in more detail in the next post how we will customize this process.
Select what to migrate from
Select a local/network folder and a destination Site in SPO
The scanning of the local folder starts...
When the migration is finished you get the option to setup incremental runs. A really neat feature
When you start up the application again after finishing
When you start from a CSV instead. I only had one task but you can add more straight in the csv or manually
Next time / in the future
next post future I will show how you can use this tool with some PowerShell-magic to migrate users home folders to OneDrive. Stay tuned ;)
