Moving tenant to partner account.

Copper Contributor

 

Hi All!

I have a challenge with my partner account vs two tenants that I operate, and I need some advice.

I log in to my Microsoft partner account with "user (at) domain-a.com"
In the partner portal, I manage my subscriptions and my benefits.
From that login, I can reach my tenant with Tenant Id: d6*-*-*-*-* by portal.azure.com
In this tenant, I have nothing more than the user I logged in with.


Then, if I log in to portal.azure.com with another (work) account, "user (at) domain-b.com", I can access all the resources I need for my business.
This tenant got Tenant Id: c5*-*-*-*-*
Here, I have VMs, storage accounts, Office 365 accounts, and more.
In this tenant, I need to consume the Azure benefits included in my Legacy Silver Subscription, which I got in my other tenant.

 

In Short, Can I somehow attach my "c5" tenant to my partner subscription in "user (at) domain-a.com" without having to move resources so that I can consume benefits in this tenant?

 

Ideally, I would just like to replace the "d6" tenant with my "c5" tenant.

Many thanks for your thoughts!

@hakan-andersson I have moved this post to our Partner-led tech topics discussion board as well. Thanks all! 

Hi @hakan-andersson,

 

yes this should work.

 

It is best to open a support case with the following details:

Please explain in the problem summary what you would like to do.

 

Hi Hakan,

If i understand correctly you have Tenant A where you manage MPN membership (Microsoft AI Cloud Partner Program) and where you have received certain benefits, including Azure credits.
You also have Tenant B where you would like to apply the Azure credits from your benefits.

I'm afraid that's not possible. As stated on https://learn.microsoft.com/en-US/partner-center/mpn-benefits-azure-cloud#redeem-your-azure-credits "you must assign these credits to an individual user in your organization" = in Azure AD tenant A.

It wouldn't fix the need to move stuff anyway as noted on same page:

The Azure credits provisioned along with any new Microsoft AI Cloud Partner Program (MAICPP) purchase like – Microsoft Action Pack Subscription (MAPS), Legacy Silver/Gold etc., can only be used on a new Azure subscription. These credits cannot be used on an existing Azure subscription. After redeeming any new Azure sponsorship, you must move all your resources under this new subscription to be able to make use of these sponsorship credits.

Good luck,
Martijn

Hi @Martijn Breet and thanks for the clarification.

 

Does this mean that I must migrate all resources in "Tenant B," including Office 365 users and mailboxes, to "Tenant A," where I have my Legacy Silver subscription, and then close down "Tenant B"?

Hi @hakan-andersson

 

Please first create a Microsoft Support case requesting that the sponsorship credits be linked to an existing Azure subscription.

 

Because this is possible.

 

What you need to do beforehand:

  1. Create a new account in the tenant "Tenant Id: d6*-*-*-*-*", as an example "sub_az (at) domain-a.com"
  2. Activate Azure Sponsoring Credits Subscription with the newly created user
  3. Add the new user to the tenant "Tenant Id: c5*-*-*-*-*" as a guest
  4. Log in to the tenant "Tenant Id: c5*-*-*-*-*" with the guest user "https://portal.azure.com/c5*-*-*-*-*"
  5. Move the Azure Sponsoring Credits subscription from the tenant "Tenant Id: d6*-*-*-*-*" to the tenant "Tenant Id: c5*-*-*-*-*"
  6. Add additional contributors or owners to the Azure Sponsoring Credits Subscription from the tenant "Tenant Id: c5*-*-*-*-*".
  7.  Open a Partner Center Support Case with the following information on your Tenant "Tenant Id: d6*-*-*-*-*"
