exchange 2019 license in a management machine-only environment

Brass Contributor


HI,
I have a question regarding exchange licensing 2019.
One of my customers currently has a hybrid infrastructure based on exchange 2016 and exchange online.
He would like to migrate to exchange 2019 and then eliminate the exchange server on prem (using a machine with the management tools installed https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/manage-hybrid-exchange-recipients-with- management-tools )
I would install a 2019 exchange in non-licensed mode, given that I have 180 days of use, I would do the migration and keep only one management machine (as per the article https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/manage- hybrid-exchange-recipients-with-management-tools).
By carrying out this procedure, is the 2019 exchange license necessary?

 

Thank you

 

Greetings
