Upgrading from Exchange 2007 SP2 RU5 to Exchange 2007 SP3 RU15

We have a migration batch running for a "cutover migration".
Do you think it will be damaged if we stop it before we upgrade Exchange and restart it after (we upgrade)?

This is a unique situation where many users are already licensed in the portal - as they use the Pro Plus application (portion of the 365 license currently).  
This is not how we do cutover migrations but we are somewhat stuck.

Naturally, we would prefer to empty the portal and create a new migration batch after Exchange is patched fully.

So my question is:

Would our migration batch be damaged or would mailboxes/users in the cloud or on-premise have corrupt data or (any other issues) . . . ?

Thank you for your time in advance!

I wouldn't recommend to stop the batch file. However, stopping batch file won't corrupt the data. Whatever, moves are not completed will be cancelled and then you can batch them again.

I have stopped and started it several times for various reasons and Microsoft supports that.
My question is what will happen if we stop it & then upgrade from Exchange 2007 SP2 RU5 to Exchange 2007 SP3 RU15 and start it

I don't think upgrading patches have any impact on migration process.
