  • yes they can both work simultaneously and you decommission Exchange 2007 once your done with complete migration.

    On the Exchange Deployment assistant  select on-prem and then select exchange 2013 on-prem option.

    your configuration may also vary depending on your dns setting, whether you have slit-dns configured or not? ExDA suggest using the split-dns, in order to do that you will need to plan some down time.

    Certificate, what type of cert do you have ? for co-existence you need to have SAN cert and need to have all the name spaces including autodiscover.domain.com

    You will also need to create a legacy hostname for your exchange 2007, make a new host in your DNS and also internet registrar DNS. legacy.domian.com -- make sure that legacy.domain.com is also on the SSL cert.

    In the ExDA- it also recommends you to configure the SCP (service connection point) to Exchange 2013 , this step is wrong order, you must configure the SCP as soon as you install a new Exchange 2013 else your users will starting receiving the certificate error/popup on the outlook.

    this is what I can think of.

    Good luck

  • Hi Pradeep,

    Welcome to our forum.

    In addition to above suggestions, we should publish Exchange 2013 to Internet after you install Exchange 2013 in organization.

    Best Regard,

  • Hello Support,

    Thank for providing information.  I don't want decommission exchange 2007. 

    I want to configure exchange 2013 simultaneously in the same forest and domain . MX records is already point on exchange 2007.

    Please share any articles so that we can configure exchange 2013 in the same forest and domain with exchange 2007.

    Did you read the links I gave you?  They go through the whole migration process (which includes installing and configuring coexistence between the two servers). If you don't want to decom Exchange 2007 (and I don't know why you don't) then skip that part.

  • Hi, That means you only add Exch 2013 on current environment and keep Exch 2007 and Exch 2013 as coexisting environment?  i am not sure but why you installing Exchange 2013 and not decommission 2007?

    Please refer the below articles.

  • Hi Pradeep,

    If we have purchased license for Exchange 2013 and for Office, we could migrate user mailbox to Exchange 2013 without any user CAL.

  • Hello Jim,

    The issue is I want to run a hybrid of Exchange 2007, Exchange 2013 and Office365 Exchange. Its primarily due to our existing investment in Exchange 2013 and respective CALs.

     

    Say, I have a total of 100 user and here’s want I want to run:

     

    Exchange 2007: 50 CALs, 50 Users

    Exchange 2013: 25 CALs, 25 users

    Office365 Change: 25 users.

     

    The clarification, I need is:

     

    1. Are there any possible technical problems I can face with this setup?
    2. Do I need CALs for 25 users that would be on Office365 and a rule created on Exchange 2013 for this hybrid setup
    3. Process of setting this up .

  • Hi Pradeep,

    For Exchange 2007 which is coexisted with Exchange 2013, we should create hybrid on Exchange 2013 by the following link:

    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj200581(v=exchg.150).aspx 

    For CAL issue, please phone to customer service by the following link:
