I'm having problems signing up to the Microsoft Partner Centre. When I use my work email to sign up I get the following message
Are there restrictions from the GoDaddy side blocking the sign up?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hi @TommyHamilton. Thanks for being part of GoDaddy Community! This is something that is disabled on our Office 365 accounts. You would need to use a different provider if this is a feature you need. Sorry
From all the documentation I can find along with contacting Microsoft they all point me back to GoDaddy and that this is possible with GoDaddy.
I can't even follow along with the steps in the link https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/admin/setup/add-domain?view=o365-worldwide
If we need to move to a different provider then who provides this service?
Microsoft seem to think GoDaddy provide this service.
Hi @TommyHamilton. The article mentions GoDaddy as a possible registrar in the process of verifying domains that are to be added to an Office 365 account. However, the process displayed isn't one that would work with what we have set up for our Office 365 customers. You should be able to do this if you have the right kind of Office 365 account through Microsoft directly. However, I don't know what the requirements are. I only know it won't work in our environment. I hope that helps.
The way I fixed it was to buy one more Domain from a different registrar that does not use MSOFFICE email, gives DNS service and that gives email domain forwarding. I bought the cheapest domain I could with DNS (same domain but with a .se domain extension in my case).
Then when this domain was working correctly and I could read emails, I used this address to sign up for MSP. I also made sure to use a private browsing window when I did this. Now I have 2 microsoft logins, but Im in business.
to keep it as clean as possible, I configured the email domain forwarding to send all mails from the .se to the .com
You can do this.
You have to have the credentials for your GoDaddy office 365 Administrator account.
You will need a Windows PC. If you don't have one spin one up on Microsoft Azure. Size A1 Windows 10 instances cast $0.02 per hour, so it won't cost you much.
Don't try to use Mac OS or Linux for this.
Start Windows Powershell by hitting Windows+R and typing "pwsh"
Type the following commands:
At this point a dialogue will pop up prompting you to sign in to GoDaddy. Use your O365 admin credentials.
then run the following command:
Set-MsolCompanySettings -AllowAdHocSubscriptions $true
Now you can complete the partner signup.
No thanks to GoDaddy support who told me this was not possible.
This worked perfectly, thanks grumpbag
Hey Everyone. I just wanted to update here to clarify some things. Originally I had received information that suggested Partner Center wasn't available for our customers. However, after running @grumpbag's solution by our advanced teams again, I found out it is actually possible. The ability to add Ad Hoc subscriptions is available for all customers on our new platform. For those on the previous platform, you can touch base with our care team who can escalate a request to our advanced support to enable these ability to add subscriptions. This is the best way to go about this as there are still some Ad Hoc providers that are not allowed. However, the solution posted above will work as well, at least for Microsoft Partner Center. Thanks and sorry for any confusion
