Hi Experts,

I am preparing to cutover.

I have some questions...but first here is my set up:

2 exchange servers in DAG  and  Casarray...  no load balancing.
both servers hold all roles. CAS, HUB, Mailbox
Exchange 2010 sp3 and Windows Server 2008 R2 on all machines involved.
One database - approx. 19GB
135 Users
no public folders
Single Forest and Domain
I have a barracuda spam filter.

I will not be using AD FS or DirSync.
I am going to require them to sign in separately to Office 365 from the local network.

First questions.... (more to come)

Is keeping it totally separate the best idea? .. or should I consider DirSync for other reasons (besides Same Sign On) ?

My users are in both mail enabled security groups and distribution groups.
How will the cutover affect this?
Will it convert the mail enabled security groups to dist. groups?

thanks in advance...
