What Advanced Options should I set for a PST migration project?
However, the most important Advanced Options to a PST migration project are outlined below:
- Under Source/Bucket Name, the default bucket name is set to "migrationwiz". If you are using your own Azure storage and uploaded your PST files into a container that has a different name than "migrationwiz" then change the bucket name to be the same name. For example, if your Azure storage container is named "pstblob" then change the bucket name in Advanced Options to be "pstblob". If these do not match, you will get an error when trying to import your PST files from Azure into your MigrationWiz dashboard.
- Under Destination, you can choose whether to inject the PST files into mailboxes or archives.
- Under Destination, you can choose to use impersonation to authenticate. We recommend that you checkmark this box. This will improve the performance of your migration, since the administrator account will then impersonate each mailbox account during migration and thus utilize the bandwidth associated to each mailbox during migration.
- Under Licensing, the default value is "1" for the number of licenses to consume per pass. Each PST license covers for up to 10GB of data to be migrated. This is the maximum supported size, as per KB004888. However, if you have PST files between 10GB-20GB then you can set this to "2". This way the migration will try to migrate up to 20GB of data (this is dependent upon storage capacity being available to accomodate the request) rather than stopping at 10GB.
