Office 365 Migration fails to start…

Error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object

Today, while working on a Migration for Office 365, I encountered an issue. I was unable to create a batch from the Office 365 ECP to migrate mailboxes from Local Exchange to Office 365. Below is the screenshot attached to the issue. As of now, there is no reported solutions to this issue.

Further research shows that multiple users are reporting the similar error starting today. Probably something is not working from MS side.

Although, the Office 365 Portal Health report doesn’t state it as a problem yet, but we are sure that Microsoft is aware of this issue, and will be fixing this issue.

We’ll update this blog again, when the issue is resolved.
