Office 365 Tenant to Office 365 Hybrid with ADFS Migration.

Hi All,

We are planning to migrate from Office 365 Tenant to Office 365 Hybrid Tenant with ADFS implemented and like know whether Quest® On Demand Migration will able to help us below tasks:

1. Setting up coexistence between Source and Target tenants.

2. How the user provisioning will happen at the Target Tenant as the domain is federated?

3. Quest® On Demand Migration is Synchronization tool for Mailbox Data migration or Copy Once Only?

  • Hello Shreedhar,

    Thanks for posting in the Quest On Demand forum. I understand you are interested in how On Demand Migration (ODM) can help with your migration.

     

    1.) Can you provide more detail on the coexistence features you are looking for? ODM offers an optional Domain Coexistence feature, which will assist in the transition of the primary SMTP namespace. The Domain Coexistence feature will allow end-users to continue to send new email using their primary SMTP email address after migration. The following KB article provides additional information about the ODM Domain Coexistence feature:

    2.) ODM is unable to create user accounts in a federated target environment. This means that user accounts will need to be created in the target Office 365 environment outside of ODM. After the target user accounts have been created, then they can be either "Matched" or "Mapped from file" within ODM. The following KB article provides additional information:

    3.) ODM is a primarily designed as a "copy" utility. This means you will need to run a new migration task anytime you want to "copy" new data from the source to target. You can run multiple migration tasks (copies) during the migration project. ODM will "update" previously migrated calendar items on subsequent migrations.

     

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions or need any additional clarification.
