Fileshare migration to SharePoint Online

    Question

  • Hi,

    I am following this document to migrate a fileshare to SharePoint Online - Use network upload to import SharePoint data to Office 365

    https://support.office.com/en-gb/article/Use-network-upload-to-import-SharePoint-data-to-Office-365-ed4a43b7-c4e3-45c8-94c8-998153407b8a?ui=en-US&rs=en-GB&ad=GB#step2networkupload

    My files upload to Azure OK (step 5) and I can view them (step 6), but I cannot get an import job to complete successfully. It always completes with errors and no files are imported. 

    The log file shows

    Use network upload to import SharePoint data to Office 365

    Any ideas on how to resolve this?

    TIA

    Si

  • Hi RDeclo,

    To troubleshoot the issue, you could check the things below:

    1. Check if the values are set correctly in the data import mapping file.

    2. Create another import job to check if the same issue will occur.

    3. Check if there is suspend information about the import service. For more detailed information, you could refer to the article below.

    Office 365 SharePoint Import Service Suspended.

    http://www.sharepointevolved.com/2016/04/06/office-365-sharepoint-import-service-suspended/

    And you also could import data to SharePoint online according to the article below.

    Import Service – SharePoint online.

  • There is a Codeplex project for this;

    http://difs.codeplex.com

    According to project description It is a File / Document / 7Document Set / List Item / Folder / Wiki Page / Publishing Page / CSV / OleDB / Database / Access / Bulk Import For SharePoint / Office 365 / SharePoint Online / 2010 / 2013 / 2016 / Server / Foundation )

    Quickly import large volumes of documents, folders, items into SharePoint document libraries and lists with meta data.

    It can use an Excel spreadsheet as import source.

    It can be automated / scheduled with Powershell.
