Testing SBS2011 to Office365 migration RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am planning an upcoming migration from SBS2011 to Windows 2019 and Office365.  With our current hyperv environment I am able to spin up a complete clone of my SBS system which I use for testing updates, etc.  I wanted to use this to do a test migration to Office365 and then 2019 but am unsure if this is possible.  We do not want this test to affect our current SBS exchange email domain.  Is a test migration to 365 trial possible?  Maybe we can change email domains during a test cutover migration to avoid conflicts?  

    Thanks.

    I think your test will affect your current SBS exchange email domain. there are documents for your reference.
