Create an Administrator Account
The easiest approach to follow is to use the global administrator account that was set up at the time of tenant creation. However, if you do not wish to use this global admin account during migration, then a new user account can be created instead. This will then need to have a license assigned that includes OneDrive for Business and be granted Site Collection Administrator privileges.
Important: We strongly recommend that you use an administrator account that isn’t one of the users being migrated, as it can cause issues with missing shared permissions.
- Create a user in Office 365 and assign a license that includes OneDrive for Business. For step by step instructions, see the Microsoft article Add users individually or in bulk to Office 365.
- Set the administrator privileges. Grant one of the permission levels listed below.
After you perform these steps, the specified user will be visible in the Office 365 administrator center. Full provisioning of the user account can take up to 24 hours.
Export the list of OneDrive for Business user accounts to a CSV file. This can be used when adding users on the Destination, and when adding the users to the project in MigrationWiz.
