To remove the last Exchange server from on-prem while keeping Exchange online and AD connect to sync identity and properties from on-prem AD to Azure AD.
I completed the paragraph “Prepare the Exchange Environment”, that end with shutdown Exchange server. And now our Exchange server is turned off and everything works fine.
My question is: shall I continue with next paragraph of “Permanently shutting down your last Exchange Server” and “Active Directory clean up”. and if I do so, will this impact Sync Exchange properties of users from on-prem to cloud ? Anyone did this before and is it safe ? we are keeping our users in local AD synced to Azure AD using AD connect.
