This is an error I’ve received when running a cut-over migration batch in Office 365.

  1. Error: ProvisioningFailedException: The parameters passed to the cmdlet represent a managed account, which doesn‎’t match the namespace state, which is federated.

I’ve reached out to support, to help me troubleshoot this.  So far there hasn’t been much I’ve been able to find online regarding my situation.

More to be shared as soon as I have additional information.

Update – 02/04/2015

With the idea that this may have something do with our domain being federated as we had already setup a ADFS server when we were configured for Hybrid.

So let’s recap on the Error: ProvisioningFailedException: The parameters passed to the cmdlet represent a managed account, which doesn’t match the namespace state, which is federated.

Focusing on the message above I was able to find do some research to research based on some blog searches that indicated the issue was with our federation status.
I ran the following command from our ADFS Server: Get-MsolDomain

Results:

I had also reviewed the setting using Get-MsolDomainFederationSettings followd by the federation properties with Get-MsolFederationProperty

Using the Get-MsolDomain I was able to identify that the domain for jermsmit.com was verified and also had a federated authentication status.

I change this back to Managed by running the following command:

This was verified by running the Get-MsolDomain to check my results.  And that worked.

I then moved forward by deleting the current failed batch; which took some time.  Once deleted, created a new batch.  At this time the cut-over migration sync is working
