Topic Last Modified: 2015-09-30

The Exchange Server Deployment Assistant is a Web-based tool that can help you with your Microsoft Exchange Server 2016 and 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:

  • Exchange 2016 On-Premises only

    • New installation of Exchange Server 2016

    • Upgrade from Exchange Server 2010 to Exchange 2016

    • Upgrade from Exchange Server 2013 to Exchange 2016 (coming soon)

    • Upgrade from a mixed Exchange Server 2010 and Exchange Server 2013 organization to Exchange 2016 (coming soon)

    For more information about this scenario, see Planning and deployment.

  • Exchange 2016 Hybrid (On-Premises + Exchange Online)

    Scenarios supporting Exchange 2016 hybrid deployments will be available soon!

  • Exchange 2013 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.

  • Exchange 2013 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 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.
