Important: When you sign in to MigrationWiz, you are redirected to the Getting Started page in MSPComplete. To get to a migration project created before April 4, 2017, click the Go to Projects button on the Getting Started Page. To create a new project for the migration scenario documented in this article, click the waffle icon () in the top navigation bar of MSPComplete, and select the appropriate migration product.
Buy an Azure subscription, or use the
free one-month trial, and be aware that this option is only viable if you are performing a very small migration.
Create an Azure storage account, and take note of the Storage Account Name and the Primary Access Key. (In Azure, from the storage screen, click on
Manage Access Keys at the bottom of the screen.) These need to be entered when creating your MSPComplete Source endpoint. We recommend that you create an Azure Storage Account in the same Microsoft data center as the Destination Office 365 tenant. There is no need to create any Azure containers for this migration. During the upload to Azure, the UploaderWiz utility will create a container on Azure which all file shares will be uploaded into. This will also contain two separate metadata files (with extensions:
-files.metadata). These are used during migration by MigrationWiz, to build out the folder structure and to migrate the permissions. They should not be deleted until after the migration.
