Profile Migration Tool for Microsoft 365 Business Subscribers

This post has been republished via RSS; it originally appeared at: Small and Medium Business Blog articles.

We earlier outlined how you can configure the Windows device to be managed by Microsoft 365 Business and access on premises resources by using the Azure AD Joined Device Configuration.


One of the aspects to keep in mind while deploying the Azure AD Joined Device Configuration is that When a device Azure AD Joins, it creates a new profile and doesn’t reference any existing profile. In order to help customers deploy Windows Devices with this configuration, Microsoft has partnered with Laplink to provide free access (for a limited time) to the PCmover Profile Migrator (PPM) Tool for Microsoft 365 Business subscribers. The PPM Tool automatically transfers applications, settings, and files between any user profiles on the same PC. To download the tool, please visit


PPM helps set up PCs with Microsoft 365 Business where User profile apps, data, and settings are quickly and easily transferred from the old Local Active Directory (Local AD) users to the new Azure Active Directory (AAD) users.


Please note that free access to the Laplink PPM Tool is available until Nov 15th, 2018.  After you use the PPM Tool, please let us know how it worked for you – your feedback is important.


Key features of PPM:

  • Supports transfers between any two users on a PC.
  • Ideal to use when migrating data from an old user profile associated with a former domain to a new user profile on a new domain.
  • Free to Microsoft 365 Business users where devices are joined to Azure Active Directory.
