Lync 2010 Server and Exchange 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are getting ready to install a single Exchange 2016 server, it will replace our 2010 server. It won't hold any mailboxes, public folders, etc. It just provides connectivity to O365 (we are in a Hybrid environment because of open relay stuff). Anyway, we run a single Lync 2010 server, it is strictly for IM and presence (no UM, voice, etc.). Based on the article below it looks like you can Run Exchange 2016 and still use Lync 2010 server (we are migrating to TEAMS mid year). Just curious if anyone runs Exchange 2016 and Lync 2010.

  • Hi Jack Leidu,

    There is no problem running Exchange Server 2016 and Lync Server 2010 in your environment, as you have Exchange hybrid environment and the mailboxes are homed in the online, if you do not deploy the integration between Exchange Online and Lync Server 2010, the users may could not use some functions, such as conversation history, Instant Messaging (IM) and presence interoperability in Outlook Web App and so on. If you have deployed the integration, there’s no problem. You could refer to the following blog to find the details:  Update: Configuring On-Premises Lync Server 2010 Integration with Exchange Online

  • Hi Jack Leidu,

    Yes, you could run Exchange 2016 with Lync Server 2010. However, if you want the users who has been enable Lync account could use the Conversation History function, you need to enable the mailbox account for those users, as the conversation history is stored in the Exchange Server.

  • Hi Evan, I just got back from holiday so my apologies for the late response. I do not understand what you mean by your statement, would you elaborate?

    1) All of our mailboxes are hosted in O365
    2) We are in a Hybrid configuration (for things like mail relay), and thus have an Exchange 2010 server that is on-premise. It is this 2010 server that we will replace with an Exchange 2016 server.....but all it is doing is providing routing.
