Move an MPN location to a new PGA MPN: company split scenario



I would be very interested in best practices or feedbacks on the scenario I'm facing.

I have a top-level MPN account with an MPN ID as the PGA (global account) and several PLA (locations) in different countries.

The operations in one country (corresponding to ~1 or 2 locations) is going to split from the company (group) as a separate company.

Our goal is to carry on with MPN on separate ways as 2 partners: the group and the new company in a specific area.

My worst case scenario is to begin the membership for the new company on a blank page.

I would be pleased to avoid it if possible.

One location has many important things linked such as a CSP account, customers' associations (PAL and CPOR) on Microsoft's 3 clouds products, activated incentives programs, co-sell opportunities.

I'm looking for a tactical way to extract an MPN location to a new v-org/PGA account.

Microsoft provides documentation on a merge scenario. Mine is different.


By the way, I'm searching for documentation on impact for each topic:

- CSP: if I have to change the MPN ID for my indirect reseller CSP (right now it's the MPN ID of the location I'd like to "extract"), what's the impact for my customers and their subscriptions on Azure/D365/M365? my relation with my indirect providers?

- people certified: I guess the link is at the PGA level so the employees would have to relink their account?

- marketplace offers: my guess from the Partner Center is that they are tied to the PGA too, not the location


Thanks for you help.

Best regards.

Hello Cesaro-- I know this is a long shot, but did you ever get an answer to this question or pointed to anyone at MSFT who can help? I am in a similar boat right now and can't find any info aside from the merge topics.

@ARodman I don't know anything about this, but I'm tracking this conversation to see if we can get you some answers. Have you checked the link shared above? It shows it was updated on 8/4/2022. Maybe it can help with new info? In the meantime I am inquiring within.

Hello @v-jillarmour

Yes, I have spent quite a bit of time reading through MSFT docs, specifically that link, and as recent as today (which contains helpful information, but does not answer the specific questions I have shared in my other post within this forum, which you also addressed-- so thank you x2!
