Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2011-11-23

A hybrid deployment offers organizations the ability to extend the feature-rich experience and administrative control they have with their existing on-premises Microsoft Exchange organization to the cloud. A hybrid deployment provides the seamless look and feel of a single Exchange organization between an on-premises organization and a cloud-based organization. The New Hybrid Configuration wizard helps simplify the creation of a hybrid deployment between your on-premises and Microsoft Office 365 Exchange organizations. After you have created a hybrid deployment, see Manage a Hybrid Deployment, which describes how to use the Manage Hybrid Deployment wizard.

importantImportant:
Creating a hybrid deployment requires careful planning and affects several areas of your on-premises and cloud-based organizations. We strongly recommend that you review Hybrid Deployments with the Hybrid Configuration Wizard and Hybrid Configuration Wizard Prerequisites prior to creating your hybrid deployment using the New Hybrid Configuration Wizard.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Hybrid configuration" entry in the Exchange and Shell Infrastructure Permissions topic.

  1. In the console on-premises organization tree, select the Organization Configuration node and then select the Hybrid Configuration tab.
  2. In the action pane, click New Hybrid Configuration.
  3. In the New Hybrid Configuration wizard, click New. The wizard creates the HybridConfiguration object. The default name of the new hybrid configuration is Hybrid Configuration.
  4. On the Completion page, review the following, and then click Finish to close the wizard:
    • A status of Completed indicates that the wizard completed the task successfully.
    • A status of Failed indicates that the task wasn't completed. If the task fails, review the summary for an explanation, and then click Back to make any configuration changes.

Now that you’ve finished these steps, you’re ready to complete the hybrid deployment configuration by following the steps described in Manage a Hybrid Deployment.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Hybrid configuration" entry in the Exchange and Shell Infrastructure Permissions topic.

Run the following command in the Shell to create the HybridConfiguration object in Active Directory in the on-premises organization.

New-HybridConfiguration
importantImportant:
If there is already an existing federation trust with the Microsoft Federation Gateway configured for your on-premises Exchange organization, the Hybrid Configuration wizard will use the existing federation trust for your hybrid deployment configuration. If there isn’t an existing federation trust, you must manually create a new federation trust before the hybrid deployment configuration process can continue. Learn more at Create a Federation Trust.

Now that you’ve finished this step, you’re ready to complete the hybrid deployment configuration by following the steps described in Manage a Hybrid Deployment.
