When you migrate Exchange mailboxes to the cloud in a cutover Exchange migration:
It says right there that the migration tool does create the mailboxes, so in that case its become very very clear to me that MS has call centers set up with people answering the phone who have NO IDEA what they are doing.... And to add to the issue of using Dirsync with cutover migration, I was just told today on tech support the OTHER answer, that you cannot use Dirsync before OR after a cutover migration because and let me quote the tech support rep "We don't know if the mailboxes will soft match" that sentence, along with another support rep telling me that there is no LAB in their facility where they can test this stuff, really makes me wish my company was selling Google apps, just because I know that would be more successful.... not that its a better product...
This thread, also points out the inconsistencies in the documentation that Microsoft has had up for the past few months... (http://community.office365.com/en-us/f/162/t/10490.aspx) However, the links that he linked to, the content has been changed, so I'm assuming that MS FINALLY realized that this was NOT professional at all, and did something about it... I remember the old help documentation saying opposite things....

One could say the same thing about some of the Gold Partners. Why would you rant here, when the partner site has its own places for partners, their own care team and everything else, then you will moan when you don't a sale. Google Apps is not BPOS or Office 365, it is like comparing a train to a motor boat.
Too many partners on here seem to lost to be called partners, and I worry what the long term effect of that might be.
Thats my rant.
Hope this helps
Care to give me a link to any of those places for partners instead of just trying to flame me? your not being any more of a help than anyone else... and that's the problem... I've been doing this job since January, started with BPOS, and then office 365 once it was announced/released... I couldn't care less if our company doesn't sell, its just frustrating as the IT guy who is dealing with imbeciles on the phone. I really seem to know more about their process than they do half the time...
I don't care if you say google apps is not bpos or office 365, they are pretty much competing cloud products.... companies most likely wont set up email on google apps for example and then want all the other features of office 365, which also offers email, and since email is probably the biggest feature that companies need, it IS a competing product since both products provide enterprise email.... and if a company is going to provide licenses for multiple users, sometimes in the thousands, I doubt they are going to pay for both services... they will see which one offers the most value for their purchase... but good job on making yourself look cool for flaming the ranter...
