Exchange – An updated Hybrid Configuration Wizard adds additional configuration transfer settings

As you may be aware, the Exchange Hybrid Configuration Wizard (HCW) has been able to migrate some organization configuration settings (ActiveSync Mailbox Policy, Mobile Device Mailbox Policy, Retention Policy and Tag) to Exchange Online since June 2018.

Now, an updated version is coming and will be able to add additional organization settings like:

  • ActiveSync Device Access Rule
  • ActiveSync Organization Settings
  • DLP Policy
  • Malware Policy
  • Organization Config
  • Policy Tip Policy

In addition of these additions, Exchange administrators will be able to ‘re sync’ the transferred settings if they have been updated on-premises by re-running the HCW.

When running the HCW, administrators will have the choice to overwrite the Exchange Online setting with the updated value or keeping as is. Also a rollback script will be available in the HCW log folder (C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Exchange Hybrid Configuration)
