Exchange and office 365 users on different forests RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good Day

    I have a dedicated domain set up for office 365 sync\federation etc. however, my exchange server rests in another forest. would it be possible to use a hybrid deployment for such a setup. further clarification below:

    2 forests

    domain A in forest 1 with exchange

    domain B in forest 2 without exchange, but to be used  with office 365

    can the exchange server in domain A be used with a hybrid exchange deployment in domain B for office 365

    i apologize if my question is unclear.

    thanking in advance

  • I, actually, have a customer doing this.  There is no problem with having Exchange Federation (or simply Hybrid Coexistence) with disparate namespaces.  The only paroblem you find is, if you are syncing from forest 1, the users in forest 2 will not appear in the GAL for forest 1 and visa verse for forest 2.
