Why hybrid Exchange?

  • A hybrid exchange is a great opportunity if you want to migrate from Exchange On-premises to Exchange Online .
  • Even if you have migrated sometimes you need a Hybrid for easy management. A Hybrid server can talk to both Exchange On-premises and Active Directory.
  • Hybrid mailflow, letting applications relay in a simple way -> Hybrid!

Configure your Exchange as Hybrid Exchange

  • press Install
  • click Next
  • Ditto, next
  • Enter your Administrator information
  • Also your Office 365 Exchange Online Account in. (Global Administrator)
  • Choose Exchange Classic if you now have a working Exchange open to the outside etc..
  • Choose Modern Hybrid (now for demo on a test environment that is not fully configured).
  • Login with your Office 365 Administrator account.

Reconfigure your Azure AD Connect Settings

  • Since you have a hybrid Exchange , of course you must also indicate in Azure AD Connect that you have this.
  • Why. For example, when assigning licenses during a migration, no mailboxes are created because they are still in Sync.
  • Select Customize synchronization options
  • Enable Exchange Hybrid Deployment
