The pre-migration report lists the source information collected and processed during pre-migration. Information categories include errors, warnings, and successes.

The pre-migration task generates and populates the pre-migration report. The migration tool provides a link to the report when pre-migration is finished. View the report to determine your readiness to migrate.

The pre-migration report, PreMigration.html, is generated in the reports subdirectory of the directory in which you downloaded and extracted the migration tool.

Each time you run pre-migration, the migration tool renames the PreMigration.html report by appending the date and time at which the report was generated, for example as PreMigration2014_August_20-17_53_47.html. It then generates a new report named PreMigration.html.

The pre-migration report includes the following information.

Fabric and business group names

Blueprint names


Agents, DEMs, and endpoints associated with agents

Deployment customizations such as custom operations, workflows, and events

Pending approval requests, reclamation requests, and workflows

Approvals that you can manually recreate in the target system

You can use information in the pre-migration report to recreate approval policies in the target system before or after migration.

User principal names that can migrate successfully

Warnings indicating user principal names that cannot be migrated

Warnings indicating that the fully qualified domain name for the server is different between the source and target systems
