Services that fall under subscriptons do not require additional licenses. When you start a service, MSPComplete clearly indicates whether an additional license is needed.
A license is not consumed until the service succeeds. If a Public Folder cannot migrate successfully, for example, no license is consumed. A license may be temporarily consumed while a service is in progress, but the license is automatically restored if the service fails or is stopped.
If a licensed migration service succeeds but experiences errors, you can perform “retry error” passes free of charge. This type of migration attempts only to repair migration errors, so it cannot be used to migrate additional items after the initial migration completes.
