Office 365 ProPlus Upgrade

    Frage

  • Hello All...........We are in the process of Migrating our on-premise exchange mailboxes to Office 365.  We have kept the Office in tact.  We have a mixed environment.  We have 2010, 2013 and 2016 in our environment.

    1.  What would be the best method/approach to upgrade those legacy versions to Office 365 ProPlus without impacting users?  We have around 300 end users.

    2.  With respect to Outlook, what changes would happen during or after the upgrade?

    3.  Would we be required to create the profiles again or after installation outlook would be automatically configured?

    4.  If Skype for Business is already installed, what would happen to it?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi Junkie,

    Thanks for visiting our forum.

    Then here we mainly focus on general issues about Office 2016 and Office 365 ProPlus client. Since your issue is related to migrate to Office 365 from on-premise Exchange mailboxes, I'll move your thread to the dedicated forum for Migration and Coexistence for better response:

  • Hi Junkie,

    1. It's recommended to use Hybrid deployment. You can use "Microsoft Exchange Server Deployment Assistant" to help you deploy.

    2.We recommend that your clients use Outlook 2016 or Outlook 2013 for the best experience and performance in the hybrid deployment. Pre-Outlook 2010 clients aren't supported in hybrid deployments or with Office 365. If using the supported outlook version, nothing changed during or after the upgrade.

    3.You need to restart outlook.

    4. As far as I know, if Skype for business has integrated with Exchange on-premise, after deploy hybrid, you need to integrate SFB with Exchange online again; if without integration with Exchange, SFB will not be affected. I recommend you post this question in Skype for Business forum, as they should have more professional knowledge on it and you may get an exact respond.

  • Hi bro,

    1. Office 365 installer will not remove old versions so they will need to be removed as part of the upgrade process

    2. Outlook 365 would create a new profile

    3. Yes profiles will be recreated

    4. S4B is already installed will see no difference

  • Thanks for the replies.

    1.  So, what should the procedure look like.  Uninstall Old Office first then Install Office 365?

    2.  If we follow above process, would it create outlook profile automatically? and would it have all the settings such as delegation, etc. as well?

    3.  So, it would be created automatically?

    4.  What if Skype for Business Installed in Basic version?  Office 365 also have Skype, would it not conflict with it? OR would not the installation fail because of it?

    Thanks in advance.

  • 1. Yes (uninstall S4B if present too)

    2. No user runs outlook then the profile is created, yes delegation etc is all in place automatically

    3. by automatically I mean there is some user interaction

    4. uninstall if detected at step 1, otherwise I believe it just installs over the top and replaces the current version

    Best thing to do is create a plan, test it then roll out
