  • All of the information on hybrid is at https://docs.microsoft.com/sharepoint/hybrid/hybrid. Let us know if you have a specific scenario you want to cover. Hybrid functionality is added to your existing farm.

  • Hi Jamil,

    The steps for migrating SharePoint server 2016 to another SharePoint environment with hybrid using Content Database Migration are the same.

    Migrate SharePoint 2016 To SharePoint 2019 Environment Using Content Database Migration

    However it will be affected with some hybrid features such as hybrid app launcher, since the HybridSPSetup wizard has connected to entire farm.

    Best regards,

  • Trevor,

    Thank you for your reply.
    I have checked the article you sent above, this talks about hybrid implementation of sharepoint.
    My case is different,  I already have a sharepoint on-premises farm in production,  and want to migrate to a hybrid farm.
    Any straightforward guidance?

    Thanks

  • You don't need to 'migrate', you need to enable hybrid features on your current farm.

  • Great,

    something missing!!

    in on-premises deployment, I have Front-End, and Back-End services (servers) both running on-premises.

    but, when considering Hybrid deployment, Back-End will be on-premises while Front-End will be on Cloud (O365).

    suppose I just enabled the hybrid features, what will happen to the "front-end" services on-premises?

    are they going to be kept running? or decommissioned? etc..

    Thanks

  • Nope, that's not how SharePoint Hybrid works. With hybrid, you have your standard farm just like you do today with FEs and BEs, and you add hybrid *services* to your existing farm, such as hybrid OneDrive for Business (so you no longer host MySites/OneDrive sites on-prem) or hybrid Search so your on-prem Search sends its index up to the cloud and search results for both on-prem and SPO are unified.

    There is no physical architecture change in the environment.

  • Great, 

    So, what is the use of hybrid? it is useless as per you explanation, even worse, it adds extra cost, efforts, etc.. for tnothing!!

    Exchange online adds value, when a hybrid deployment in place, but for sharepoint online, it seems it does not.

    unless something is missing...

    Thanks

  • Did you read the docs? It allows you to maintain a presence in both on-prem and online or assists in transitioning from on-prem to online. This is _just_ like Exchange hybrid which allows you to mix mailboxes between on-prem and online, for instance.
