When migrating an Azure subscription from the CSP program to the Microsoft Customer Agreement (MCA), there are various factors you need to take into account to ensure a smooth transition.
- The migration involves transferring ownership of the subscription from the CSP to the MCA. CSP usually initiates the transfer request from the azure portal and then transfer requests are accepted by the owner (MCA)
- Just make sure 100% the the MCA account is associated to the correct Azure AD tenant and that will be sweet.
- Existing RG, resources, and Log Analytics workspaces should remain unaffected and should be available after migration post switch.
- Azure Policies and RBAC assignments are commonly retained, but it is always a good idea to have a post-review after migration.
To mitigate associated risk:
- Changes in billing and payment processes should be understood, and communication and coordination with the CSP are essential. Validating subscriptions and resources, updating billing/payment information, and monitoring for any issues post-migration are important steps.
- It's always handy to have a Microsoft support on standby for any potential issues during migration
