Throughout my career I have helped multiple clients in managing their Infrastructure and migrating them to cloud. During one of my recent projects, I had to migrate the exchange server to office 365 and I did evaluation of multiple software’s in the space and came across Exchange Recovery Manager tool from Shoviv. One of my concerns was that I was migrating huge exchange server mailboxes and I wanted to make sure that the tool should have the capability of incremental backup so for any reason we have any process interruption we can restart without losing the progress and this tool satisfied the criteria.
As the name suggest, it’s a utility which helps in recovery of corrupted EDB files and Exchange Server’s mailboxes but it’s also a great option to do the migration from multiple sources like EDB Files, Exchange Server and office 365 to any targets like Outlook PST, Exchange Server and Office 365.
I used the software for migration from exchange server to office 365 and the whole migration process was seamless. The Ui is quite intuitive and it’s quite straightforward to configure your source and target resources to start the migration. You can monitor the progress of the migration in the UI or generate a HTML based report.
For this demo, I am going to show how to migrate with an EDB Files. Click on Add Source and select the EDB File. For Exchange Server Mailboxes, you can connect to an existing server with the admin account.
Right click on the account you want to migrate and click on Export in Office 365 and then select Single or Multiple Mailboxes as per your requirement. For the demo purposes, I am migrating multiple mailboxes so I selected multiple Mailboxes option.
Select the Mailboxes you want to Migrate and click on Next Button
Now, provide the required Office 365 credentials or you can select already configured Outlook profile (global admin user of Office 365).
Map the Source and Target Mailboxes for the migration and click Next.
You can filter the content you want to migrate based on the dates and type of mails and click Next.
The Migration will start now and you can monitor the progress on the UI
Once completed, a popup will appear about the status of the process. You can also look at the different folders and their status individually as well.
