Known Issue Issue ID
If the Skip if the target file is the same version or newer option is selected, files that were previously migrated and for which additional sharing permissions have been added may not appear in the Shared With Me panel of users who have been granted this additional sharing permission. Workaround: Remove and re-grant permissions directly to previously migrated files in the target. ODM-1112
Statistics related to permissions can be incorrect in some specific cases. ODM-872
Deletion of target object after the migration may not be reported. ODM -855
In case the created Mailbox Switch task is edited and the mail forwarding direction is changed, all selected notification messages will be readdressed, but the wizard may not display notification settings correctly. Workaround: Select Run later and finish the task to re-open it. After the task is re-opened you can see the actual notification settings. Now you can schedule the task as necessary. N/A

Mail Migration Task Wizard cannot be finished if you add and then clear the value in Exclude mail before and Exclude mail after fields. Workaround: Close the wizard and create a task anew. ODM-176
Double-clicking Finish button in wizards may result in creating several duplicate tasks. DO-728
All accounts must be matched or migrated before migrating the groups they belong to, or with the same task that migrate groups. Otherwise, the newly migrated accounts will not be added to the target groups. Workaround: Re-migrate the affected groups after all their members are migrated. N/A
If you migrate a mail-enabled group with non mail-enabled members, some of those users might not be added to the target group. The following error is displayed for each affected user: "Group membership migration completed with errors. Couldn't find object [User GUID]. Please make sure that it was spelled correctly or specify a different object." Workaround: Re-migrate the affected groups. ODM-309
Deleting or moving a file in the OneDrive storage that is currently being migrated may result in aborting the storage transfer with Content transfer failed error. Other storages from the migration task are not affected. Workaround: Re-migrate the failed storage. ODM-335
A search query entered by user to filter content may be lost in case the user switches tab. ODM-293

After the migration, the calendar invites with Teams links may need to be updated.

ODM -788
In case of re-migration, On Demand Migration re-migrates mail and calendar items that have changed in the source mailbox to the target mailbox. Also, calendar items that have been removed from the source mailbox will be removed from the target mailbox. Re-migration of other types of items that have been modified or deleted in the source mailbox is not supported. 4781288-1

Address Rewriting
Due to Microsoft's Exchange Online limits on messages sent from the tenant that are calculated according to purchased Exchange Online licenses, some of the sent messages exceeding this limit will not be delivered within 24 hours and will wait in the queue to be send next day. If waiting time will be longer than 24 hours, the sender will receive an NDR.

Workaround: To increase bandwidth you need to purchase more Exchange Online licenses

Workaround: Retry the SharePoint processing later.
