Complications of Migrations

Migrations are often over complicated by uninformed decisions made by business and technical staff.  These decisions - be they technical, time line, budgetary, or inappropriate process chaining - can cause undue stress on a project and, at its worst, cause a project to halt in its tracks.

Even if you set it to “Automatic” and start, it will eventually be stopped by OS and Startup Type will reflect Automatic (Trigger Start) so QMM RUM will keep complaining about it.
