Is there a script we can use to take an OnPrem exchange mailbox and move it to Office365?

Adaxes version
2017.2
3.8.14823.0

Also is this something that is already part of 2018.1?

Hello,

Is there a script we can use to take an OnPrem exchange mailbox and move it to Office365?

Yes, have a look at section Move mailbox to Office 365 of the following help article: https://www.adaxes.com/help/?HowDoI.Per ... mO365.html.

Also is this something that is already part of 2018.1?

The same approach can be used in Adaxes versions 2018.1 and 2018.2.

Hello,

The suggested method does not work for me. I get this error:

Account Adaxes is running on has Domain Admin permissions.
Why is it complaining about credentials?
How can I provide one?

Thanks!

Hello,

To connect to Office 365 the CreateMoveMailboxToO365Request method uses the credentials of the account specified for the corresponding tenant in Adaxes. As for the remote server (specified in the first method parameter), to connect to it, the credentials that were specified during the domain registration in Adaxes are used (the AD domain where the user is located). Probably, the error occurs because the credentials used to access Exchange on-premise cannot be validated by Exchange Online. To remedy the issue, try to specify the credentials for the domain explicitly. For information on how to change the credentials, have a look at the following help article: https://www.adaxes.com/help/?HowDoI.Man ... nInfo.html. On step 5 of the guide, select This account and enter the credentials of an account with Organization Management and Recipient Management roles assigned in Exchange on-premise.

You can use the credentials of the Adaxes service account, just make sure that you specify them explicitly rather than selecting the Adaxes service account option.

Awesome! This works now.

Should I expect any implications due to specifying credentials explicitly rather than selecting service account option?

Also are there any options to control when warning messages should appear for specific actions in Adaxes? Because for brand new mailbox there will be no corrupted/oversize items so warnings are not needed:

Thanks!

There should be no issues specifying the credentials explicitly.

The warning in your screenshot is generated by Exchange Online. Adaxes writes all execution warnings to the execution log. This behavior is by design and can’t be disabled.
As far as we understood, you are creating new users with mailboxes and moving the mailboxes to Exchange Online after creating them. In this case, you don’t have to move mailboxes. Mailboxes are created in Exchange Online when the appropriate Office 365 license is assigned to the users.
If Exchange is in hybrid mode, Adaxes automatically enables and disables remote mailboxes when assigning and revoking Office 365 licenses with Exchange Online. You can configure how Adaxes enables or disables remote mailboxes. For details, have a look at the following help article: https://www.adaxes.com/help/?HowDoI.Per ... boxes.html.

This is for a shared mailbox type, the only type that cannot be provisioned in Hybrid Exchange the usual way...

Thanks!

Hello!

If you are using Exchange 2013 with update CU21 or later or Exchange 2016 with update CU10 or later, you can create remote shared mailboxes using the Enable-RemoteMailbox cmdlet with the -Shared parameter. If you have another version of Exchange, the approach you are using is correct.

Thanks. That's great news.
So Microsoft is fixing at least something.

Hello, I couldn't get my head arround on making a condition "when mailbox is on Premise" to migrate it to the cloud. Looking at account details Adaxes shows either a ... database or "Office 365" in mailbox location field. Can I query that somehow? Powershell?
