Move AIP sublabels to a different parent label

Occasional Contributor

I'm trying to rebuild my label structure and want to move a existing label to a new parent label to ease user acceptance. It looks like the advanced powershell cmdlets don't allow for that:


WARNING: Encountered exception: Microsoft.Exchange.Management.Transport.LabelParentChangeNotAllowedException: The label
already has a parent 8ebb64e0-8991-4556-8dee-d5ae67a20a74, cannot change to parent

Is there a way to do this? Or can I use the Secure Island migration process to move all users from a specifc label to a new one? (

Some experience or help would be appreciated.

Currently solved it recreating a separate label structure and the plan would be to only publish the new label structure to the users. So overtime they should only use the new label.
