Migrate On-Premise 2010 to S4B Online - on-premise requirements? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can't seem to find this documented clearly, but if I move all users from an on-premise installation into an O365 tenant, leveraging shared SIP space guidance, is there any requirement to retain the on-premise Lync servers?  I am working with a mixed 2010/2013 environment and there is no desire to retain on-premise servers more than necessary.

  • Hi,

    Base on my understanding, after you move all users to SFB online side, then you can remove the Lync Server On-Premises environment. Then the Lync\SFB Server environment will turn to SFB Online environment.

    Best Regards

  • "Once i have moved all users to online, is it a supported configuration to remove on-premise Lync/S4B servers, and leave only ADFS/AAD Connect in place?" - This should work, ADFS and AAD connect will continue to server with SSO and acnt sync. However all the skype for business DNS records should be pointed to O365 once on-premise server is gone. Hope this answers your query.

  • None of these directly (or indirectly in my opinion) answer the specific question I am looking to answer.

    I have a hybrid deployment today.  Users exist in both on-premise and online.

    I am planning to move all users to online.

    Once i have moved all users to online, is it a supported configuration to remove on-premise Lync/S4B servers, and leave only ADFS/AAD Connect in place?  

    I can't seem to find a reason why it would NOT work, but am looking to verify that before I go and do it.
