User for Hybrid Wizard - create new one or use existing ?

Copper Contributor

Dear Exchange Pros.


We are here almost ready to deploy hybrid wizard on our Exchange 2013.

While the setup, we have to enter user credentials from an user account with Domain Admin and Org Admin rights in Exchange and a user with global admin rights in Office365. So i have 3 questions and i hope you can give me some hints.


1 - Do you create new users for the HCW Setup or do you use existing users ?
2 - When i create a new user just for this, can i disable the account after the setup ?

3 - Do i run the setup direct on the exchange server ? ( Maybe a stupid questions but AAD Connect is also not on a Domain Controller like i expected the first time i heard about it)


Thank you very much for your help!
