Register-SPMTMigration

This cmdlet will create a migration session and initialize it. The initialization will configure migration settings at session level. If no specific setting parameters are defined, default settings will be used. After a session is registered, the user can add a migration task to the migration session and start migration.

Description

This cmdlet will create a migration session and initialize it. The initialization will configure migration settings at session level. If no specific setting parameters are defined, default settings will be used. After a session is registered, the user can add a migration task to the migration session and start migration.

Examples

EXAMPLE 1

#Define SPO target#
$Global:SPOUrl = "https://contoso.sharepoint.com"
$Global:UserName = "admin@contoso.onmicrosoft.com"
$Global:PassWord = ConvertTo-SecureString -String "YourSPOPassword" -AsPlainText -Force
$Global:SPOCredential = New-Object -TypeName System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -ArgumentList $Global:UserName, $Global:PassWord

#Import SPMT Migration Module#
Import-Module Microsoft.SharePoint.MigrationTool.PowerShell

#Register the SPMT session with SPO credentials#
Register-SPMTMigration -SPOCredential $Global:SPOCredential -Force

This example registers a migration session.

Parameters

-AzureActiveDirectoryLookup

By default, this is set to On. If no user mapping file is provided by the user, then Azure Active Directory is used as the default for user mapping.

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-CustomAzureAccessKey

If you use your own Azure storage, you need to set Azure storage account to On, enter your account and key. You also need to select if you want to enable or disable encryption, and whether temporary files are deleted when migration is completed.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-CustomAzureStorageAccount

The default is Off. If you wish to use your own Azure storage, set this value to On.

If you choose to turn it On, additional fields will appear for you to enter your account and key, and settings to select if you want to enable or disable encryption. You also need to decide whether temporary files are deleted when migration is completed.

*Note: * This feature is supported only for General Purpose storage accounts as General-Purpose accounts support Azure blobs and queues. This feature is not available for Blob Storage accounts.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-DeleteTempFilesWhenMigrationDone

By default, this is set to Off. If you set this value to On, those temporary files in Custom Azure storage generated during migration will be deleted when the migration is completed. Otherwise, those temporary files will not be deleted.

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-DuplicatePageBehavior

Determine the behavior of the page file migration when encountering a page file with the same name or same id on the target.By default, DuplicatePageBehavior is set to RENAME.

For RENAME, we will keep the conflicted page file on the target and rename the source page file with a new name.

For OVERWRITE, we will overwrite the conflicted page file on the target using the source page file

For SKIP, we will skip migrating this conflicted page file.

For NO_PAGES_MIGRATION, we will skip all the page files no matter they conflict with the target or not during the migration.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-EnableEncryption

The default is set to On. If you use your own Azure storage, you will set and define your account and key, and decide and configure enable or disable encryption in settings, and whether temporary files are deleted when migration is completed.

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-EnableMultiRound

The default setting is Off. This means the migration will only do one check round to make sure no new changes or additions were made since the previous run. If it is set to On, it will do up to 5 check round to make sure no changes or additions were made.

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Force

Forcibly stop and unregister existing migration.

Note: If you have a registered SPMT migration session already, the Force parameter will register a new session anyway.The Force parameter performs the function of Stop-SMPTMigration and Unregister-SPMTMigration together. If you have never run "Register-SPMTMigration", with or without the Force parameter, a new session will be created.

If you have an active migration and didn't use the Force parameter, you need to run Stop-SPMTMigration, and then run Unregister-SPMTMigration to unregister the exiting migration session first.

Type:SwitchParameter

Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

The default is set to On. If set to On, all version numbers of the file will be migrated.

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False

The default setting is Off. If set to On, all the site fields and content types will be migrated. Otherwise, only those fields and content types used by lists to be migrated will be migrated.

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-MigrateFileVersionHistory

If set to No, only the most recent versions of the file will be migrated. If set to Yes, you can choose whether to keep all versions, or limit it to a specific number. By default, it is set to On.

Type:Boolean
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
