Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP1

Topic Last Modified: 2011-08-15

To configure a hybrid deployment between your on-premises Exchange organization and the cloud-based organization, you're going to need information about your current deployment. You might want to print this step so you can record your organization's information and have easy access to it as you go through the checklist.

CautionCaution:
This topic is meant to be read as part of the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 and Office 365 Hybrid Deployment checklist. Information or procedures in this topic may depend on prerequisites configured in topics earlier in the checklist. To view the checklist, see Checklist - Exchange 2007 and Office 365 Hybrid Deployment

We recommend using the Microsoft Office 365 Deployment Readiness Tool to analyze your existing Exchange organization and confirm that the prerequisites for a hybrid deployment are met. The readiness tool is integrated with the guidance provided in the Microsoft Office 365 Beta Deployment Guide and provides detailed assessments for Exchange Online, user identity and account provisioning, client and end-user experience, and many other areas.

You can use the following table to gather information about your existing organization that you're going to need before you get started with the deployment. When you're working through your checklist, replace the example information that you see in the checklist with the information you've provided in this table. For example, if the external fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of your Exchange 2007 server is exchange.adatum.com, enter that FQDN in the "Value in your organization" field.
