  1. Support including Chrome Type in web parts migration in pages.

    Migrated Web parts from SP13 to SPOnline don't include the chrome type attribute as it is and set to "Default".
    So, if I have a web part that its Chrome type is set to "None", it's set online as "Default" instead.

  2. Slow Speed

    HI,

    I have been testing migration tool and experienced extremely slow speed, even for a list of 100 items, it takes couple of hours to even initiate the migration.

    1 - Is there anything we can do to increase the speed
    2 - when using a csv file, connection is made for every source and destination url. Can we authenticate once and it can used for all the source sites and destination sites.

    Greeting, as far as performance goes please read https://docs.microsoft.com/sharepointmigration/sharepoint-online-and-onedrive-migration-speed and if you are still experiencing issue there is information in the FAQ on how to raise the issue.

    For the CSV file, if the data is all from the same server source and you are site collection admin on all of them there should be a setting to allow you to keep the credentials and not having to resign in.

  5. Why is it making an app pool with the installing user? It should be a service account

    Prompt for a user and password of the user who will run the service.

  6. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. Enabled Document Preview for on-prem files in Modern Search Center

    We set up Hybrid Search (CloudSSA) so that we can point users to our Modern Search Center (sharepoint online) while we run in hybrid for next few years. But document preview does not work for on-prem files. Per Microsoft engineer, this is being worked on.

    Reason : Modern Search uses different preview or microblog service which does not have the ability. Classic search from Enterprise search center has the preview ability

  10. SharePoint Online service administrators should also be allowed to run the SharePoint Hybrid picker, not just the O365 global admin

    In large IT organizations, especially organizations that already use Office 365 applications, often the O365 global admin is a different team or admin than the SharePoint Online team or admin. The SharePoint Online admin team who would have the SharePoint Online service administrator role, but not necessary the entire O365 tenant global admin role, should be able to run the SharePoint Online Hybrid picker as well as the O365 global admin.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  16. copy path

    "Copy path" making it possible to copy the path to a point in the file structure would help the organisation to learn "what to find where" by pointing at exact not-manually-entered locations.

    It would decrease the tendency of the structure to become a "write-only-memory" with increasing size and time.

  17. Hybrid Taxonomy PowerShell modern authentication support

    The PowerShell cmdlets for copying Taxonomy Groups and Content Types (Copy-SPTaxonomyGroups, Copy-SPContentTypes) only support passing credentials in a legacy method, this blocks copying these items to SPO if you have conditional access (or have disabled legacy auth) enforced for your tenant.

  19. 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.
