Exchange Mailbox Migration errors

I am migration 44 mailboxes to Office365. I'm using a tool called migration-wiz.

So I had to give my admin account and give myself full permissions so this tool can gain access to the mailboxes and migrate the data.

After adding myself with those full access permissions to some users everything was good. But after a while I started to get a warning upon completion which i attached the photo below.

Now I checked my event log and I see this error

"Process w3wp.exe () (PID=4260). User 'Sid~ABC\john~EWS~false' has gone over budget '326' times for component 'EWS' within a one minute period. Info: 'Policy:DefaultThrottlingPolicy_8bbb676e-a705-4b0f-a58b-30777c69d87b, Parts:CAS:325;'. Threshold value: '100'."

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yeah. There's a feature you can enable called impersonation. What's happening is you are exceeding the Office 365 throttling policy limit for number of connections to the service. Impersonation will allow you to impersonate the mailbox you're migrating to and deal with the throttling limits of each user's mailbox instead of just yours. Connect to the Office 365 Exchange remote powershell and run this:

new-managementroleassignment -role "applicationimpersonation" -user youradminemail@company.com

That will set up your admin account in O365 to run in impersonation mode, which should fix that error for you.

An overview of why this is happening is here:

You cannot change the Throttling Policy on Office 365, as acbrown2010 described above.

Unfortunately, you must just tough it out and wait for the batches to go through -- which they eventually will.  

Try migrating mailboxes in smaller batches -- or migrate very large mailboxes (over 20GB) by themselves as a single-mailbox batch.

Also... if you are going to be the administrator for your Office365 service, you need to learn how to use it's powershell.

This blog post will help you do that:

Wait so your telling me I have to stick to the 2 at a time out of 44 mailboxes? This will take about a year to complete

Actually... I just took a look and see that the recommendation by acbrown2010 is somewhat correct.

MigrationWiz will actually do that change for you if you modify the Advanced Options of the connector:

(I haven't used MigrationWiz in over a year because I've found that the built-in migration tools have been working well)

Well, Migwiz won't set the permissions for you. You have to do that manually. You also have to set Migwiz to use that feature for it to do so.

I set the permissions. I called microsoft and they said theres just to many mailboxes and they are also very large. So the server will only migrate a few to control the  Throttling

I also selected my comment because I contacted Microsoft and they verified the issue.
