Migrating from Exchange 2010 SP3 /hosting to Exchange 2016 multi-tenancy RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    our current Exchange environment consists of two mailbox servers and two HUB/CAS servers running SP3 in /hosting mode.
    It contains 11 organizations, 5 mailbox databases and 284 mailboxes.

    We are now considering migrating to Exchange 2016 with multi-tenancy. Since there is no /hosting mode anymore in Exchange 2016, what would be the best way to accomplish this?

    While searching for documentation I only found threads like this:

    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/exchange/en-US/a433c287-0f20-4b37-846e-0ea2e8ace87f/introducing-exchange-2013-in-hosted-environment?forum=exchange2010hosters

    Is there any documentation on this except for the one that describes migrating from Exchange 2010 /hosting mode to Exchange 2010 SP2 without hosting mode, which is merely similar to migrating from 2010 /hosting to Exchange 2013?

    Does anyone have experiences with a similar scenario?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you

  • Hi Marcel,

    As far as I know, there is no any other document except the one you had found. As Allen mentioned in the thread you found, migrate Exchange hosting mode to a normal on-premise mode, it is similar like a cross-forest migration, we must create a new forest and install wanted on-premise Exchange version, then follow the steps in document (Migrating From Exchange Server 2010 in Hosting Mode to Exchange Server 2010 SP2)to migrate the exchange from hosting mode to a normal mode.

  • Hi Niko,

    thank you for replying.
    Do I have to migrate from Exchange 2010 hosting mode to Exchange 2010 "normal on premise mode" (new forest) first and after that to Exchange 2016?

    Or can I straightly install Exchange 2016 in a new forest and then migrate from Exchange 2010 hosting mode?

    Best Regards,

    Marcel
