Disable Multi-Factor Authentication

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a policy that requires the account owner to verify login attempts with a second device of their choosing. We recommend disabling all MFA policies prior to configuration.

Multi-factor authentication can be enabled by administrative policy or by end users, depending on the email system.

Multi-factor authentication requires the account owner to perform another type of verification at login by sending an email, text or phone call.

Administrative account

The MFA prompt, when connecting with an admin account in Transend Migration Console, causes the login to fail. As a result, you must turn off MFA for the admin account to validate in Transend Migration Console.

End User accounts

If migrating using the end-user account’s login and password then each user account will need to turn off MFA.
