Hey. Hello. I'm Ragnar Heil. I'm a Channel Account Manager at Quest Software here in Central Europe. And the next few minutes, I would like to show you how to do a pre-migration analysis in case you want to migrate a SharePoint on-premises environment to SharePoint online into the intelligent workplace, or you want to migrate a file share to [INAUDIBLE] workplace, or you just want to move a modern SharePoint site from one tenant to another tenant.
On the top left I've configured a new SharePoint site in Essentials and everything what they need do is just a right click on starting a pre-migration analysis. And here, I mentioned the source tenant name and also the target tenant, just paste it here and connect it, and then I'm ready to do the analysis of SharePoint sites. I can analyze also template, site features, web parts, master pages, subsides. I can analyze lists. I can analyze items regarding the limitations of the file size, or about blocked file extensions, or path lengths, and so on. I can generate a PowerShell Script. I can run a scheduler in case I want to run this report at 2 o'clock at night when I'm sleeping, but now I just want to run it right now and finish.
Now let me jump into the Excel file which we have just created. Here I can get a general overview by the site URL, last modified date, the templates, number, if custom features are used. And here I see yes. So here I might run into issues, but there are no custom web parts. There are no workflows, no site, no large lists, no custom master pages, no unique permissions. And if I dive a little bit deeper, I go into the templates, I see all different kind of templates which are used in every single page.
Getting deeper into the feature set, I can see that maybe there are going to be some issues around the SharePoint recommendations. And if I look into the web parts, there's nothing happening here, no workflows, and this analysis I can see that everything looks pretty good so no complaints here on the file sizes and no complaints around checked out files or any other things. Going a bit more deeper on a content detail level, when I look into each file I can see that also the file path's lengths and the check for blocked file extensions look pretty good, so everything here seems to be ready for a migration.
I was also creating a new report for file share analysts and here I can see that I don't have information around web parts and so on, but it goes very deep into the file summary. And here I can see that I have files which have special German umlauts or special characters like a hashtag and here there are some invalid characters. So before I can start my migration of file shares into OneDrive, SharePoint, or Teams, I first have to fix this umlauts and special characters otherwise I would run into issues. So this kind of analysis is very helpful indeed.
So let's assume now that you've done the pre-migration analysis with file shares and SharePoint. Maybe you've also done the migration from SharePoint on-premises or from file shares into the modern workplace, or from one tenant to the other tenant, and now you want to find out if all the files are already in your target tenant and have the same amount of files like in the source tenant. And here [INAUDIBLE] offering a nice module called live compare, and here I'm going to specify the site URL, and the source, and the target tenant, and also the document library-- here in my case, it's called documents-- and I'm going to do a live comparison here and click on it and then I can check if I want to also check memberships and so on and permissions. I'm going to do the whole check now not only content and the very few seconds you can see the differences between the source and the target tenant.
So here I can see that the source tenant has got 81 files, the target tenant has got 80 files, so yeah, obviously, one single document might be missing. And here I'm clicking on content. And here I can see ah, the Mark 8 elevator pitch is missing. And using the copy from left to right, I can just [INAUDIBLE] and now migrate it directly into the target tenant. And now both tenants would have the same amount of documents, which are 81.
Thanks for watching. Hope you find this useful. And you can find more about essentials for Office 365 at quest.com. Thank you.
