5.2.6.Creating migration group(s) and adding group members
In the next step we need to create a migration group and associate our mapped mailboxes with it. Since a migration can be started on group level only, mailboxes that are not group members cannot be processed.
Group management makes the migration process more transparent and manageable. You may check which mailboxes have been already migrated, and it also helps to define priorities, i.e. to migrate the most important mailboxes in the first round.
Create a migration group and add members to it
Navigate to “Migration” tab. As you can see, there is initially a Default group. Click “Create group” in the toolbar to create a new group (if you don’t want to use the default one).
Name the group and add members to it using the context menu:
The next pop-up dialog displays all available mappings that can be added to the group. Pick the desired mappings and click “Select”.
In the next pop up dialog click “Create”.
Mailboxes to be migrated are now added to the “Members of group” grid as seen on the picture below:
The “Jobs of group” grid is still empty. In the following subchapter we will learn how to add an Email migration job (Outlook PST migration job) to our migration group.
