Move users to and from Lync Online

Move users to Skype for Business Online

Move-CsUser -Identity -Target -Credential $creds -HostedMigrationOverrideUrl <URL>


Move users back to on-premises

Move-CsUser -Identity -Target -Credential $cred -HostedMigrationOverrideUrl <URL> -DomainController <DC>


I found that if the "-DomainController" switch is not used then the move fails with the error - Move-CsUser : Cannot find user in Active Directory with the following SIP URI:<>


  1. Hi-

    Have you found that you get this error under other circumstances? Even when you add -DomainController?


  2. Hi J. Can you provide the command as well as the error you are seeing?

  3. I am having the same problem. Here is my command:
    Move-CsUser -Identity -Target -Credential $creds -HostedMigrationOverrideUrl -DomainController

    Here is the error:
    Move-CsUser : HostedMigration fault: Error=(201), Description=(Cannot finduser in Active Directory with the following SIP URI:

    I verified the sip is valid and is returned upon search.

    1. Hey Brian, do you have a multi-domain forest structure in your AD? If so, try to point to the DC that contains the user. I'm not sure if you can point to a GC for this cmdlet.
