Can anyone point me to documentation on upgrading a hybrid environment from 2010 to 2016? I would also welcome a discussion on the benefits of performing this type of upgrade. All of our Mailboxes are hosted in the cloud, but we keep 1 on prem exchange server for management of exchange attributes. We are using exchange 2010 along with the latest version of Azure AD Connect.

Hi Robert,

 

You have to prepare the Exchange 2016, configure it, paths, autenthication, certificate, etc. migrate system mailboxes to 2016 after that just run Hybrid Configuration Wizzard to point to 2016, change the DNS to point to 2016 and then uninstall 2010.
