Description of Bug
Expected behavior: According to the Roblox release of this feature and the website prompt below, it’s implied that the Migrate button should only shut down old servers over 1-6 minutes and start up new, updated servers.
Actual Behavior: The Migrate button shuts down brand new, up-to-date servers. The shutdowns also appear to be all instant, not over 6 minutes. From what I can tell, the Migrate button does exactly the same thing as “Shut Down All Servers” button.
I’ve talked with many other devs and no one seems to know exactly how this feature is supposed to work. They agree that it appears do the same thing as just shutting down all servers. There is no clear description of how it’s really supposed to work.
The bug happens in multiple places I tested.
I’ve always noticed this feature to be weird, but I never fully tested it until now.
Repro of Bug

What happens: I play the game. A new server starts up and I am put in the server. I then click the Migrate button. My brand new, up-to-date server is shut down.
In the game window I see this:
