You may be already aware that Microsoft has provided a migration tool for SharePoint Online to help you migrate your SharePoint On-Premises or file servers to SharePoint Online (you can take a look there https://t.co/fiamXncZYo and https://t.co/j4dLOzS9De).

Now, an updated version (2.0.99.0) of the migration tool now includes PowerShell command to help you in your migration.

If already had a previous version of the SharePoint Migration tool installed, the updated version will be automatically installed the next time you start it. Otherwise go to http://spmtreleasescus.blob.core.windows.net/install/default.htm

As part of the PowerShell command you will be able to:

  • create/remove a migration session
    • Register-SPMTMigration
    • Unregister-SPMTMigration
  • add/remove tasks in an existing migration session
    • Add-SPMTTask
    • Remove-SPMTTask
  • start/stop a migration session
    • Start-SPMTMigration
    • Stop-SPMTMigration
