Hi All,

  

I have hybrid environment with exchange 2010/2016 and O365. What is the best way to create room mailboxes in this environment using exchange 2016?

 

I have followed Exchange 2010-https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/office/exchange-server-2010/ff625227(v=exchg.141)...

 

But when i create in Exchange 2016. Mailbox is created in On Prem server and not mark as remote room mailbox?

 

Do i have to run the HCW in 2016 server?

 

TA

My own preference when creating new shared / room / resource mailboxes in a hybrid environment is to create them directly in Exchange Online as cloud only objects.  This greatly simplifies things in my opinion.  Check out this guide for more information on setting up room mailboxes - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/exchange/recipients/room-mailboxes?view=exchserver-2019&viewFallbac...
