Migrating SharePoint sites from O365 to On Premise -Learning's

Migrating contents from On Premise SharePoint to cloud is comparatively easy, however if you have the other scenario then things wont go smooth.

Following are the issues we faced while migrating from O365 to SharePoint On Premise

  • The Site template was not worked at all for restoring the site.
  • The List templates are also not working for restoring lists one by one.
  • “MetaVis” - Migration tool supports O 365 to ONprimise migration, however its trial version didn’t support.
  • So we end up in migrating manually as leveraging thirs party products was not a feasible option for us.
  • Also we faced several challenges while re-creating workflows associated with the lists.

Special thanks to my colleague Vishnu PS who helped me consolidating this information

Office Web Apps with SharePoint 2013 Issue

Sorry there was a problem and we can't open this document. if this happens again try opening the document in word

we have configured a sharepoint 2013 server and a Office web app in Azure environment.

Office documents preview was working fine and stopped working all of a sudden. We ahve realized that after restarting the Office webapp server, we started getting the above mentioned error.

While looking into the DNS of the OWA server identifeid that the entry was missing. we have addedthe entry how ever still the owa preview was not working.
we have removed binding and added binding again. Nothing helped.
Finally just reinstalled office webapps in the same server. everything started working again. This time we havent even removed and added the binding, however it worked.

Hope this helps some one... Good Luck
