Cross-Tenant Migration Legal-Hold or Encrypted Mail or File Data

 This is a quick note and IMPORTNANT:

Within a Cross-Tenant Migration project, you can experience data encryption. Note the following statement and plan accordingly.


There is no possibility to migrate data (EXO, SPO, OneDrive) if the source is set on legal-hold

Encrypted Data:

It depends on the encryption method. Either AIP or user based.
If it user based, the migration can work and with the resignment of the the encryption/decryption might work again. But while the DNS domain is with the source tenant, encrypted mails become unusable.

With AIP, the only way is to decrypt in source, than migrate and encrypt in target again.
Migrating a tenant AIP key is NOT possible
