Installing Exchange hybrid deployment prerequisites
Installing Exchange hybrid deployment prerequisites
The first thing you need to do is to prepare your management environment. You will need
this management environment to carry out administrative and configuration tasks. You will
also be making configuration changes to your Exchange on-premises server to prepare for
integration with Exchange Online.
Preparing the Exchange Management Console
The EMC is the graphical Microsoft Management Console (MMC) used to manage
Exchange environments. If your organization has on-premises Exchange, this is the
management console that your Exchange administrators use and are most familiar with.
The EMC was traditionally developed as a management tool for on-premises Exchange.
With the introduction of Exchange Online, and the recognition that administrators desire
minimal, unnecessary disruptions to do their jobs, Microsoft retrofitted the EMC so that it
can also be used to manage your organization’s Exchange Online subscription.
EMC on a server
When you install Exchange 2010 on a server, the EMC will be installed as part of the
installation process. While you can use the server’s EMC to manage Exchange and also to carry
out the Exchange hybrid implementation tasks, it is generally not a best practice to do so.
Install and configure the EMC on a workstation for administration purposes.
EMC on a workstation
You might choose to install EMC on a workstation for remote management of Exchange
rather than using a server-based EMC. The following list shows the prerequisites to install
the EMC:
Domain-joined computer
At least one Exchange 2010 server installed in the forest
Windows Vista x64 with SP2, Windows 7 x64, Windows 8 x64, Windows Server 2008
RTM x64 with SP2, or Windows Server 2008 R2
Follow these steps to install the EMC prerequisites. We will be using a Windows 8
workstation for this exercise:
1. Click Control Panel, and then click Programs.
2. Under Programs and Features, click Turn Windows features on or off.
