  1. File with empty date created metadata not migrating to SharePoint Online

    While migrating from file share to SPO using SPMT, if any file "Date Created" metadata is empty, migration tools throwing error "Scan File Failure:The item created time or modified time is not supported".

    I would suggest in this scenario, if "Date Created" is empty it should replace with "Data Modified" metadata and vice versa after migration time.

  4. Support in SPMT SP 2019 <=> SPO migrations

  5. SharePoint Migration tool complete with Errors

    Migrating from SharePoint 2010 appears to work and great progress has been made. However, it would be nice if the tool would complete sites that had errors and just skip and log the portions that were unable to complete. We are noticing the tool can complete individual portions under a site, but if there is a specific error on a site the entire migration fails and halts. Error is usually "ErrorCode: 0x02010002" and does not migrate or continue past that error. If we select the individual portions in the site most all migrate fine. If that is the case it…

  7. Remote Blob Storage in Azure Storage Account (BLOB) storage For SP2016/2019/O365

    Basically create an add-in / configuration element in CA in 2016 / 2019 that enables a Farm Administrator to select a single or multiple Azure Storage Account blobs to operate as Remote Blob Storage, and conversely support this ability in O365. Then for migration you would leverage the migration tool to migrate list data and metadata for documents - but just reference documents in azure storage -- for lots of my customers that would greatly simplify migration - you could create multiple blob storage accounts which could all be loaded independently - or we could figure out a way to…

  8. Automatic renaming of illegal files and folders in SPMT

    Many of the 3rd party tools offer features to automatically replace illegal characters in file names and/or remapping illegal folder names such as 'Forms' at the root level for OD4B. It would be nice if SPMT also had such features.

  9. Migrating SharePoint Online sites to Modern SharePoint Site

    There is no direct tool available to migrate the SharePoint online list libraries or customization to Modern sites. Though the scripting is not supported directly in modern sites. Is there any way to provide some suggestive migration tool for the same.
    Thanks

  10. reduce/control SharePoint Migration Tool memory and disk index usage to under 2GB

    The current 2.1 release of the SharePoint Migration Tool balloons to occupy a huge amount of memory and disk space when scanning millions of files. I find this unnecessary for a program that is essentially creating a catalog of files.

    After scanning 15 million files, memory usage is at 12 GB and the list.dat file is 45 GB.

  11. Don't immediately begin migration of files upon resuming a scan only session

    Don't immediately begin migration of files upon resuming a scan only session. I had a scan only session running for 175 shares that crashed the SPMT. Upon restarting and resuming the migration, the tool began actually migrating the files when I only wanted to scan them.

  12. permission

    SharePoint Migration tool does not migration Full permission from File share to "Full Control" permission level in SharePoint Online. The mapping of Full permission to contribute is not a correct scenario because it does not provide Share folder permissions. This is a serious flaw. We hope there is a workaround or fix very soon.

  14. Local Storage Path

    One of the base requirements for the migration tool is 150G of available space or an SSD. Many of the organizations we support have relatively small C drives though plenty of storage on other attached storage. The migration tool seems to error out if the C drive has < 150G of available space. Please allow the admin performing the migration to specify where the migration tool can obtain it required space.

  17. Edit/View MS Project (.MPP) files from Office 365 SharePoint Online

    After Migration we are unable to open MS Project files (.MPP) from Office 365 Sharepoint online. Please fix this. There are some suggestions online on how to fix it but best would be if this was native within SharePoint Online

  18. Dedicated Azure Storage ID should be part of each tenant. Not a free ID that is shared.

    Dedicated Azure Storage ID should be part of each tenant. Not a free ID that is shared. We never know how long a large blob storage migration is going to take.

  19. Support destination Document Sets with the SharePoint online migation tool

    When using the existing SharePoint Migration tool, if you have a folder in the source and a Document Set with the same name in the destination, it seems to corrupt the Destination Document Set.
    Would it please be possible to migrate files from a source Folder to a destination Document Set with the same name.
