HTH Update Corner

What did Microsoft hose this week?

  • EX221227 - "Admins may be unable to migrate some mailboxes"
  • Start time: 8/26/2020 7am UTC
  • End time: 9/8/2020 5:27pm UTC
  • Official Issue not posted until 5 days later…"Start time: August 31, 2020 6:38 PM"
  • "Root cause: A recent service update to Exchange Online caused issues with migration requests."
  • "We're reviewing our validation and update procedures to prevent issues like this from occurring in the future."
  • "Approximately 1.6 percent of migrations encountered this issue, and admins can now resume their migrations or restart those that encountered a failure."
  • TM221283 Users who are given control by a presenter during a Microsoft Teams meeting are unable to control the screen
  • "Depending on how impact is presenting itself for your organization, there are workarounds available. If no mouse or keyboard actions are working, users may click on one of the side rail items (such as Chat, Teams or Calendar) and then return to the meeting screen to mitigate impact. If a user has issues controlling the top of the screen, the sharer needs to move the shared app (such as a web browser or the Outlook client) down 40 pixels to mitigate the impact."
  • "We've determined that a recent service update is causing the problem. We're developing a fix, which is expected to take an extended period of time to complete as we need to make sure that it doesn’t negatively impact any additional aspects of the Microsoft Teams service. We're expecting for the validation of the fix to complete by Tuesday, September 15, 2020, at which time we're aiming to provide an ETA for the deployment of the fix and the remediation of impact."
  • "Our telemetry suggests that approximately three percent of meetings may experience impact."
