Disable Office 365 integration
Updated: October 4, 2012
Applies To: Windows Server 2012 Essentials
If you disable Office 365 Integration, you can no longer use the Dashboard to manage Office 365 accounts.
Your Office 365 subscription is still valid if you disable Office 365 Integration with the server. However, to manage Office 365accounts and services, you must log on to the Office 365 website.
Disabling Office 365 Integration with the server does not reverse any changes that you made to Office 365 from the server Dashboard. For example, if you used the Link a domain to Office 365 task in the Dashboard, the domain name continues to work for Office 365 after you disable the integration. In addition, disabling Office 365 Integration with the server does not make any changes to your Office 365 subscriptions. Disabling Office 365 Integration does not change your Outlook configuration or remove any email messages.
Because the Office 365 Integration software is installed on the local server, you can disable the feature even if the Integration service cannot connect to Office 365.
In the Dashboard, on the Office 365 page, click Disable Office 365 Integration.
Follow the instructions to complete the wizard.
