Moving mailboxes back to on-premises Exchange
Moving mailboxes back to on-premises Exchange
Moving mailboxes back to on-premises can be facilitated only through an Exchange hybrid
environment. Otherwise, you will need to rely on third-party tools. Unlike having the
cutover and staged migration options from the EAC and ECP, when moving mailboxes to
Office 365, there are no built-in options to carry out the reverse.
As you saw in Chapter 11, after you have implemented an Exchange hybrid environment,
the move of a mailbox to Office 365 is done by carrying out a remote move request. To
move mailboxes back on-premises, you need to take into consideration whether the
mailboxes you want to move were created in Office 365 from the very beginning or whether
they were first created on-premises and then moved to Office 365.
Mailbox originally created on-premises
If the mailbox you want to migrate from Office 365 was initially created on-premises and
then migrated to the cloud, all you have to do is submit a new remote move request from
the Exchange Online organization to the Exchange on-premises organization through the
Exchange Management Console (EMC). Follow these steps to see how this is accomplished:
