Thanks for the feedback.
I noticed your Service Request has been closed. If the issue has been fixed in your side or is no longer existing, please update in the forum.
I resolved this issue myself. My Exchange server wasn't set as a global catalog. After this change the migration started and migrated successfully.
Tks ShaunSwan1 it woks for me too! :)
