  • Hello Nitin,

    Thanks for posting to the Quest On Demand forum. I understand you have questions related to a migration scenario where you need to migrate both Active Directory objects and perform an Office 365 Hybrid Tenant to Office 365 Hybrid Tenant Migration.

     

    1.        Is on demand migration support Hybrid environment for Office 365 Tenant to tenant migration

     

    Yes, On Demand Migration (ODM) supports migrating from a hybrid source to a hybrid target. However, this project may also need to be accompanied by Migration Manager for Active Directory depending on the scope of the Active Directory portion of the migration.

     

    2.        Is on demand migration support for skype and teams and SharePoint online co-existence

     

    Currently, ODM does not provide support for Skype or Teams. However, migrated users can use their new target credentials to access source SharePoint data with On Demand Migration (ODM)'s resource processing feature.

     

    3.        Is on demand migration support for teams, SharePoint online, planner and yammer migration

     

    Not at this time.

     

    4.        Is on demand migration support for address re-write feature

     

    Not currently, but this feature is coming in the very near future.

     

    5.        Is on demand migration support for address office 365 domain move

     

    No, ODM does not move the domain and/or MX records. This will need to be done outside of ODM using native Office 365 tools.

     

    6.        How migration manager for active directory will help for clear immutable ID for Groups

     

    This question would be better answered by a Solutions Architect and/or Professional Services. Have you reached out to your Quest Account Manager for assistance with these types of questions? If you need assistance locating your Quest Account Manager, please let me know.

     

    7.        Shall we go with single phase migration for active directory and Office 365 Tenant migration or Phase 1 active directory migration and phase 2 for Office 365 Tenant migration

     

    This question would be better answered by a Solutions Architect and/or Professional Services. Have you reached out to your Quest Account Manager for assistance with these types of questions? If you need assistance locating your Quest Account Manager, please let me know.

     

    In regards to the sample migration workflow you provided, this would be best validated by a Solutions Architect and/or Professional Services. Please let me know if you need assistance locating your Quest Account Manager, who can put you in touch with the necessary resources.

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

  • Hi,

    For SharePoint migrations, I would like to point to
    https://www.quest.com/products/metalogix-content-matrix/
    and
    https://www.quest.com/products/metalogix-essentials-for-office-365/

    (This functionality is likely to be integrated into ODM at some time, however since the Metalogix acquisition is pretty new this is not planned for the near future.)
