How do I migrate from Amazon S3?
It depends on what you are migrating from Amazon S3.
- If you are migrating email accounts that have been archived to your Amazon S3 account by MigrationWiz, then these can be restored to an active email account by performing a second migration, using the Amazon S3 data as the Source and your desired email server as the Destination. Refer to the instructions below for more information on the steps to follow to perform this type of migration.
- If you are migrating PST files that are located on AWS S3, then you will need to perform a PST archive migration. To migrate PST files, you must first upload them to Microsoft Azure (either BitTitan Azure Storage or your own -- or your customer's -- Azure storage). Refer to the Migration Guides that are included in the Related Articles section at the bottom of this page for exact instructions on how to perform these migrations.
If you are migrating email accounts that have been archived to your Amazon S3 account by MigrationWiz:
Your Amazon Web Services account needs to be active, and you will also need an access key and secret key pair for the account. The access key must be granted full permissions to perform S3 actions. The root access key has these permissions by default, but if you are creating a secondary access key from the IAM, then ensure that you add the Amazon S3 Full Access policy template. See the AWS security blog for more information on access keys and permissions.
With the access key, you can create a new Mailbox Migration Project and set the Source to Amazon S3. You will have to enter both the access key and secret key here in order to proceed. You can then continue to the Item configuration, where you will enter the email address that was used to store the backed-up email account in S3. The Source email address has to match the exact folder name in Amazon S3, so make sure you match the exact spelling of the email address as it is stored in S3. Once you have the Project configured, and the Item configured, you can start your migration and move the mailbox out of Amazon S3 to your email server. You need to purchase mailbox migration licenses to perform this type of migration.
