How does the MigrationWiz Assessment tool work?
The MigrationWiz Assessment tool is available for migration projects for the following scenarios:
Performing an assessment before a Google Mail or Google Drive migration is highly recommended to estimate the number of required licenses because:
Note: The assessment tool will scan each mailbox and determine the total size of the mailbox. This is what will be included in the assessment report. It does not provide information on the number of items (i.e., Mail, Contact and Calendar).
Here is how to use the MigrationWiz Assessment tool:
Notes:When setting up your MigrationWiz project, it is very important to checkmark the box labeled Use Administrator Login, and enter the customer domain name, under the Your Domains field.Important: If you do not do this step, then email will be sent to all users, requesting their credentials, as part of the assessment.If this step is completed, then users will not receive email as part of the assessment, which is the strongly recommended approach to follow.Google Apps mailbox migration projects require
the BitTitan client ID to be granted access to the scopes included in the Knowledge Base article referenced above (and here: KB005019).Google Drive document migration projects require the BitTitan client ID to be granted access to the scopes included in the Knowledge Base article referenced above, plus API access needs to be enabled.
Note: In order to run an assessment, the specified Destination mailboxes and/or OneDrive for Business accounts must be fully provisioned. If the Office 365 licenses cannot be assigned to all the users at that stage of the migration, at least one (1) license needs to be assigned to a single user. The email address for that single user must be specified for all Destination email addresses in the users.csv to be imported into the
MigrationWiz project, with the Office 365 global admin credentials enabled. When it is time start the migration, all Destination email addresses can be bulk edited by running a script (follow the directions in
KB005157), or by deleting and re-importing the users.csv file with the correct Destination email addresses.
You can select All Users, as indicated in the screen shot below:
From this level, click on the
There will be a column labeled Mailbox Size (bytes).
Convert this number to GB (by dividing this number by 1024*1024*1024).
The size calculations may be different from those that are reported in the Google Admin portal. Some possible reasons for this are:
GoogleDrive admin portal is reporting on all data for the user. This includes data in their My Drive and the Shared With Me folder. MigrationWiz assessment is based on what
will be migrated, because MigrationWiz will only migrate what is in the My Drive.
If you want to migrate data in the "Shared With Me" folder too, then the following steps are required:
