Cross-tenant restoring (migration)?

Post by mrhcarlin » May 31, 2019 11:17 am

Just wondering if VBO supports, in any way, cross-tenant restoring? We'll want to be able to restore mailbox data at a minimum. OneDrive and SharePoint are less important.

For context, we will be creating a new tenant soon because our current one is in the wrong region as well as having an old company name that we want to completely separate ourselves from. A company called BitTitan have a product called MigrationWiz that can apparently achieve what we’re looking for, albeit at cost; but since we already own VBO, I figured I’d look into using it to do the same thing (or similar) to save money.

Thanks,

Matt

Hi Matt,

For mailboxes, cross-tenant restores are possible; but you will have to restore them one by one (no bulk options in this case) and you will need to create [empty] target mailboxes in advance as this is something VBO cannot perform.

SharePoint and OneDrive restores are currently limited to the original tenant only.

Thanks

Thanks!

And just quickly: I know you guys are working on functionality/features to do full tenant-to-tenant migrations. What sort of timeline could the public expect this? Just curious as we obviously don't want to spend too money on a separate product to do our own migration if VBO will soon support it. (Although we could almost certainly get by with one-by-one mailbox migrations since we're quite a small business!)

Matt,

From what I know, we do plan to further enhance restore functionality and, for example, add cross-tenant scenarios for SharePoint. However, VBO will still be focused on data protection.

How many mailboxes do you need to migrate? You could consider using PowerShell automation to do this...
