I need to migrate my local file shares (NAS) to SharePoint 2019 server (On-Premise). I've checked on both Migration Manager and SPMT but from Microsoft official article seems that the destination can only be SharePoint online, OneDrive, or Teams.

Just to confirm can I use Migration Manager or SPMT to migrate local file shares to SharePoint on-premise server?

    Hi @Marcus Wong Theen Nam ,
    SPMT supports migration to SharePoint, OneDrive, and Teams from SharePoint Server 2010, 2013, and 2016.

    Migration Manager helps you migrate your on-premises file share content to sharepoint online.

    So you can not migrate your local file shares (NAS) to SharePoint 2019 server (On-Premise) using SPMT or Migration Manager. There is currently no official tool to do this.
