Exchange Server Deployment Assistant

 

Topic Last Modified: 2013-08-27

The Exchange Server Deployment Assistant is a Web-based tool that can help you with your Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 deployment. The Deployment Assistant asks you a few questions about your current environment and then generates a custom checklist and procedures that help simplify your deployment. To access the Deployment Assistant, see Exchange Server Deployment Assistant.

You can use the Deployment Assistant for the following deployment scenarios:

  • On-Premises only
    • New installation of Exchange Server 2013
    • Upgrade from Exchange Server 2010 to Exchange 2013
    • Upgrade from Exchange Server 2007 to Exchange 2013
    • Upgrade from a mixed Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2010 organization to Exchange 2013
    For more information about this scenario, see Planning and Deployment.
  • Hybrid (On-Premises + Exchange Online)
    • Exchange 2013 on-premises with Exchange Online
    • Exchange 2010 on-premises with Exchange Online
    • Exchange 2007 on-premises with Exchange Online
    For more information about this scenario, see Exchange Server 2013 Hybrid Deployments.
    importantImportant:
    If you have an Exchange 2003 on-premises organization and want to configure a new hybrid deployment with Office 365, you must add one or more servers running Exchange 2010 Server Service Pack 3, not Exchange 2013 servers, to your on-premises organization. To do that, we strongly recommend that you use the Exchange 2010 hybrid deployment option in the Exchange Server Deployment Assistant.
  • Cloud only
    For more information about this scenario, see Understanding Cloud-Only Deployments.

In addition to the above Exchange 2013 deployment scenarios, the Deployment Assistant also has deployment scenarios for Exchange 2010.
