Options for Decommissioning UM Role RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have an on-prem Lync Server 2013 and Exchange Server 2013 environments.
    All of our mailboxes have been migrated to Office 365.

    All recipients are enabled for unified messaging in Office 365.

    We'd like to decommission our Exchange 2013 server and replace it with an Exchange 2016 server.
    The Exchange 2016 server would be used for administrative purposes only: we would like to be able shut down this server without impacting the business.

    What considerations would I need to make for the UM role when decommissioning the Exchange 2013 server?
    Would I need to introduce the UM role for the new Exchange 2016 server?

    Thanks!

    There is no UM role in 2013/2016. Its built into the mailbox role.

    If Lync is still on-prem, then ensure you have followed:
