Introduction

When planning an Office 365 tenant-to-tenant migration for your company, strategizing with a multi-dimensional approach is the way to go. Meeting the factors that the target Microsoft 365 tenant demands is an industry-standard practice to follow, but how about walking the extra mile to use the migration project to meet more goals that can augment your business operations?

Use this guide to get actionable insights into strategizing your company’s upcoming Office 365 tenant migration project and executing it with optimal security and zero downtime.

Office 365 Tenant to Tenant Migration Challenges

The biggest challenge associated with migrating Office 365 from one tenant to another is it needs to be a comprehensive migration. Apart from user accounts and data such as files and folders, businesses must also migrate licenses (subscriptions), groups, domains, email system, and Microsoft Teams. Therefore, companies and their IT teams must choose a lift-and-optimize approach over a straightforward lift-and-shift migration approach.

IT teams must also have clarity on the protocols within the source Microsoft 365 tenant to match them with the target tenant for a successful migration. For example, it is critical to understand the type of email protocol used in the source Office 365 tenant’s Exchange and implement the same IMAP or another protocol in the target tenant.

Step 1: Sign in to CloudFuze Account 

The First step to migrate from one tenant to another in Office 365 is to create and log in to the CloudFuze account. 

CloudFuze Webapp

 

Step 2: Add Both the Microsoft 365 Accounts to CloudFuze

Locate the OneDrive/SharePoint icon under the list of business clouds and click on it. Log in using your Microsoft admin login credentials and authorize it. Repeat the same process to add the destination tenant.

Step 3: Add Apps From the Source and Destination Tenants

The first step is to add the apps that your organization plans to migrate. For example, from the list of apps to migrate, you may first choose to transfer users and data from the source OneDrive tenant to the destination OneDrive tenant.

Added clouds

Step 4: Configure the Source and Destination Tenant Apps

The next step is to visit the Team Migration section and configure the source and destination tenant apps (e.g., OneDrive for Business) in the correct order as per their domains. This process helps ensure that your IT team transfer users and data from the actual source tenant app to the destination tenant app and not the other way around.

Step 5: Map the User Accounts

In the Mapping section, map the user accounts to transfer the data in the correct path. Since user accounts in the source tenant app and destination tenant app do not match, auto-mapping does not work.

Therefore, it is a must to use the CSV mapping method. Our managed migration team can assist your IT team in creating CSV mapping for a high volume of user accounts.

Step 6: Map Permissions 

Map permissions to the right users in the destination tenant. By default, the permissions are mapped with respect to the email addresses and can be customized based on the business requirements by clicking on the edit option.

Step 7: Configure Migration Options

Configure a few migration options as the final steps prior to starting the Office 365 tenant to tenant migration process. Choose the migration type as one-time for the first migration run and add all stakeholders of the project for migration report updates.

Step 8: Preview and Start the Migration
