Maybe the not so obvious parts of your Exchange infrastructure that need addressing as well in order to avoid any unwanted behaviors and/or errors after you removed the last legacy Exchange server from your organization.

The following article is a concentrated and (hopefully) comprehensive set of information collected from various sources.

The problem is that the offline address book cannot be downloaded.

Alternatively you can use the Exchange Management Console command: Update-Offline Address Book "Default Offline Address list" You can check whether the offline address book has generated successfully by re-opening its properties in Exchange Management Console.

On the "General" tab it will show a "Modified" date.

This is when the offline address book was modified or rebuilt.

If your global address book has a different name then you will need to substitute the appropriate name in the above.

If there are any warnings or errors shown then these should be investigated and resolved.

As I did quite some Exchange migrations (including single as well as multi tenancy environments) I was always wondering whether there are any additional post migration tasks that need to be addressed before you start removing your legacy Exchange server(s) from your organization.

For instance, as with migrating from Exchange 2003 to, say, Exchange 2010 you had to update Global Address Lists, Address Lists, Offline Address Books, et al to the new Exchange 2010 version by executing the corresponding cmdlts, e.g. Now when migrating from Exchange 2010 to Exchange 2016 (or even just from Exchange 2013 to Exchange 2016 with both having an almost identical architecture) what remains of those post migration tasks? What kind of architectural changes require you to think different and adjust certain settings prior to removing your legacy Exchange server(s)?
