Migrate SharePoint 2016 to SharePoint Online - The SharePoint version is not supported RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've already asked this question in the SharePoint 2016 category, but thought I should post here as well.

    Currently we are running an on-premise SharePoint 2016 server, we are interested in moving some of our on-premise infrastructure to Office365. We are already using Azure AD Connect to sync our Active Directory to Azure.

    I have installed the SharePoint Online Management Shell on the on-premise SharePoint server, along with the latest version of of the SharePoint Migration Tool -

    After connecting to both Office365 and the on-premise SharePoint site that I want to migrate, I see the following error:

    The SharePoint version is not supported

    I have also tried to use the SP Online Management shell to do migration, but get the same error.

    Is migrating from SharePoint 2016 not supported at the moment? Is this something that is going to change in the near future?

    Failing that, is it possible to migrate using some other method which will preserve all metadata etc?

    Any information much appreciated,

    Kind Regards
