As I’m blogging some of these migration errors and resolutions from the partner forum I don’t want people to get the idea that every migration hits a brick wall.

No one runs into the partner forum and yells “I can print!”  or “I had no issues today!”.  It is after all THE break fix partner forum you know.

And if anyone pings me and says “I can’t access that link — dudes and dudettes if you sell your services to clients and perform IT services you SHOULD have access to that link.  Go to the Microsoft partner page, sign up and go to the support tab.  From there follow the instructions to sign up for the partner forum where you get support from a Microsoft Engineer.
