Create a Mailbox Migration Project
- Click Go To My Projects
- Click Create Project
- Select a Mailbox migration type. Mailbox projects are used to migrate the contents of the primary user mailbox from the previous environment to the new environment. Most mailbox migrations can migrate email, calendars, and contacts.
- Click Next Step.
- Enter a Project name and select a Customer.
- Click Next Step.
- Select a Source Endpoint from the Endpoint drop-down menu. If an Endpoint has not been created, click New and provide the requested information in the Endpoint creation flyout window.
- Select a Destination Endpoint from the Endpoint drop-down menu. If an Endpoint has not been created, click New and provide the requested information in the Endpoint creation flyout window.
- When creating the project on your Source Settings or Destination Settings tab, click New.
- Fill in the fields below. Once endpoint has been saved in the project, it will automatically be assigned to the customer that was selected in the Project Information tab when creating the project.
- Name: Type any name you want for the endpoint.
- Find My Service Provider: Use this control only if the endpoint you’re creating is hosted by a service provider and not a local endpoint. If you don’t know your server type, click this button and then click your provider in the drop-down list.
- Endpoint Type: Click the Endpoint Type drop-down, and then click the appropriate endpoint type in the list. Ensure you have selected the correct source and destination. When you select an endpoint type, the form will expand so that you can provide additional connection information and credentials for that endpoint type. These additional fields vary depending on the endpoint type.
- If an endpoint does not exist for the service that you want to connect to with MigrationWiz, then use the Generic endpoint type to generically store the web address for that service, a username, and password. This endpoint can still be used for Runbook execution.
- Provide credentials: Select Provide Credentials or Do Not Provide Credentials as needed.
- If you select Provide credentials, the form expands to present more fields for username and password. The credentials will be used by MigrationWiz to access the service selected. In most cases, you must provide credentials for an administrator account on those services, as this will enable MigrationWiz to have full access to the cloud service.
- If you select Do not provide credentials, then MigrationWiz will request credentials from end users before a migration can be started, or before a Runbook can be completed. This may slow your migration, as you are now dependent on the end users to provide these credentials.
- Domains: For migrations using G Suite Endpoints, this is the list of domains that you will be migrating to, or migrating from. This is not relevant to any other migration environment.
- Use SSL: For some endpoint types, there is an SSL check box at the bottom of the form. Select this check box if you want to secure your new endpoint with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
- Note that IMAP and POP endpoints include an SSL option (check box): If your provider uses SSL, you should select this check box and enter the SSL port number in the field provided. For IMAP endpoints, the default port number for SSL is 993. For POP endpoints, the default port number for SSL is 995.
- If your provider does not use SSL, do not select this check box, and enter the non-SSL port number in the field provided. For IMAP endpoints, the default port number for non-SSL is 143. For POP endpoints, the default port number for non-SSL is 110.
- Click Save and Go to Summary
Add Accounts (Items)
Add the accounts that will be migrated, also referred to as items, to a project using one of the following options:
- Quick Add: This option allows you to add items one at a time. You have to enter an email address, login name, and password for each user if you didn't enter administrative credentials when setting up the project. You only have to provide an email address if you entered administrative credentials when setting up the project.
- Autodiscover Items: MigrationWiz detects the mailboxes directly at the Source using Autodiscover. For more information, refer to How do I Autodiscover Items for my Migration.
- For mailbox migrations, this feature is only supported when the Source is Exchange 2007 or later, when the Source is Office 365, or when the Source is G Suite.
- This feature is not supported for in-place archive migration projects, even if the Source is Exchange 2007 or later.
- Bulk Add: This option allows you to add multiple items at once by copying and pasting from a spreadsheet or by importing a CSV file. The domain names at the Source and at the Destination might be different. Make sure to provide the right information in the project. If they are different, it's best to modify these in your CSV file, and then use the Bulk Add feature to import the users into the dashboard.
- Select the Project for which you want to perform the bulk import.
- Click on Add.
- Click on Bulk Add.
- Follow the instructions on the page.
Set Advanced and Support Options
Advanced Options allow you to choose your notifications, filtering, maintenance, licensing, performance, and some configuration options.
Support Options are advanced configurations that make use of Powershell or code blocks to provide extra options or resources for your migration.
The following options are the most valuable for this migration scenario:
