Become a CSP reseller for another location

Hello,

 

I would like some information regarding becoming an Indirect Reseller for Indirect Providers (I was unable to find it in the docs.)

 

Our company has a Partner account with MPN & CSP dashboard. I enrolled the current account (we are in Asia) as an Indirect Reseller and am looking to associate with partners within our region.

 

We also have locations in Africa and the Middle East, which I have added to the Locations Tab. Each have been authorized and have their own MPN ID.

 

I attempt to partner with a African provider but it kept getting an error. Partner support and the partner mentioned I have to enroll each location MPN ID as a CSP partner.

However when I attempt this with my account (I am the global admin), I keep getting a "You are already enrolled" message when redirected to the dashboard.

 

Can I proceed to just share the MPN ID for our african locations with the partner to associate with them?

If not, how do I enroll each location individually with my account?

 

Appreciate the help and guidance in advance.

-Adrian

@AdrianF :

 

You first need to create a new AzureAD tenant in the same location(s) where your MPN location(s) were set up.

Tip: Directly enable AzureAD Security Defaults when the new tenant was created to ensure compliance with the security requirements. And in order to avoid some occasional strange error when doing the enrollment later I'll recommend to set the email address of the "Technical Contact" in Azure Active Directory --> Properties to the email address of your support team (The support team's email address you will add later in the CSP registration form).

 

Then you use a global admin account created in the newly created tenant(s) to go through the Indirect enrollment: https://partnercenter.microsoft.com/pcv/register/joinnow/enrollmentwelcome/valueaddedreseller 

Note: In here you will be asked to enter contact information for your support team - use the same email address as entered as technical contact email address.

 

During this CSP enrollment you will be asked to enter the MPN ID of an organization you want to link this new MPN account to - here you use the respective MPN location ID.

 

So then you have technically separate Partner Center accounts, but linked to the same MPN organization. Incentive Management for those new CSP enrollments will still happen in your Partner Center account were you manage MPN.
