Hi,

 

We are in the process of upgrading our Intranet to Modern SP.  I created a new Modern Site Collection and moved the content over and now I am trying to rename the old publishing site collection (intranet) and it shows  " This type of site cannot be changed". I don't have retention enabled. 

 

The goal is to change the Publishing site to ( intranetarchive) and the new site Modern SP site to intranet.

 

How can I achieve this? Any help is appreciated.

 

Thanks

Pbala
