Known Issues

The following is a list of issues, including those issues attributed to third-party products, known to exist at the time of release.

·Modern page migration is part of groups to groups migration.

·Nintex Forms/Workflow app should be installed before a list/library migration.

·Copy Nintex Forms is supported only as part of “Copy Site as Existing Site” because Nintex Forms app should be installed before site migration. Installation of O365 App at "Copy Site as new Site" or "Promote to New Site collection" is not supported as Microsoft does not allow automatic app installation in the tenant during site creation.

·out of place restore from Backups works inside one tenant only.

·Delete action does not remove snapshot from a hyper backup project stored on Amazon Storage with Custom Endpoint.

·Performing an Azure Turbo Migration of OneNote files from tenant to tenant will result in incorrect page ordering on the target tenant.

·Nintex Form migration is not available as part of Hyper Migration.

·Chinese Tenant issue:

oAzure turbo will not work as Microsoft does not provide Azure containers in the tenant. Therefore, Hyper mode migrations/Backup works without Azure turbo.

oEnterprise file system like Box, Dropbox and Google Drives are not available in China.

·Claims Connection goes to loop in some environments and the connection cannot be finished as a result.
