‘Last Exchange Server’ Scenario Feedback
Published Mar 21 2024 06:53 AM 26.9K Views

In April 2022, we released an update to Exchange Server 2019 Management Tools that enables organizations that use Azure AD Connect and sync their Active Directory to manage Exchange recipients without the need for a running Exchange Server on-premises. 

If you have one or more Exchange servers that are used only for recipient management (often referred to as Last Exchange Server - LES), you can install the updated tools on a domain-joined machine and shut down your last Exchange Server. For more information, see Manage recipients in Exchange Server 2019 Hybrid environments. 

We want to hear from you if the above has been helpful to you and further understand the scope for improvement. We're particularly interested in learning what obstacles are still preventing the shutdown of your last Exchange Server if your organization does not need full Exchange on-premises. We’d also like to understand your Exchange management scenarios better if you have a hybrid organization (and plan to stay in hybrid).
