Requirement For SFB Hybrid deployment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I recently upgraded my Lync 2013 infrastructure to Microsoft SFB. I am planning on implementing a Hybrid infrastructure in the coming weeks and need to clarify the following.

    1. Do I need to have exchange hybrid to implement SFB hybrid?

    2. Is it enough to just have SFB on-premise (Front end and Edge Server) + AAD Connect to achieve SFB Hybrid?

    Cheers!

  • You can check infrastructure requirements here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj205403.aspx

    In short you need:

    O365 tenant

    On-premise deployment of SFB

    Azure ad connect

    O365 license

  • Thanks for the input + the link gave some more insight.

    One thing though I could not clarify from the link, can I implement hybrid without an edge server? I doubt this but I thought to clarify.

  • Hi Richard_Steiner,

     

    Based on the Technet document,you can achieve the hybrid without an edge server.

    Configure your deployment for hybrid with Skype for Business Online, you need to have one of the following supported topologies:

    • A Skype for Business Server 2015 deployment with all servers running Skype for Business Server 2015.
    • A Lync Server 2013 deployment with all servers running Lync Server 2013.
    • A Lync Server 2010 deployment with all servers running Lync Server 2010 with the latest cumulative updates.
      • The federation Edge Server and next hop server from the federation Edge Server must be running Lync Server 2010 with the latest cumulative updates.
      • The Skype for Business Server 2015 or Lync Server 2013 Administrative Tools must be installed on at least one server or management workstation.
    • A mixed Lync Server 2013 and Skype for Business Server 2015 deployment with the following server roles in at least one site running Skype for Business Server 2015:
      • At least one Enterprise Pool or Standard Edition server
      • The Director Pool associated with SIP federation, if it exists
      • The Edge Pool associated with SIP federation
    • A mixed Lync Server 2010 and Skype for Business Server 2015 deployment with the following servers roles in at least one site running Skype for Business Server 2015:
      • At least one Enterprise Pool or Standard Edition server
      • The Director Pool associated with SIP federation, if it exists
      • The Edge Pool associated with SIP federation for the Site
    • A mixed Lync Server 2010 and Lync Server 2013 deployment with the following server roles in at least one site running Lync Server 2013:
