exchange admin centre access

For 2013 on premise servers, how do you actually access to the EAC console? Is it client software installed on the exchange server itself, or can you access it from any PC? What determines which users can access the EAC - i.e. how can you see who has access and what level of access they have to it?

For hybrid setups, can you manage both your on-premise server and cloud mailboxes from the same console, or is there another management tool for the cloud mailboxes (if so what is that known as? )

This article talks about permissions:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/18024.how-to-access-exchange-admin-center-in-exchange-server-2013.aspx

"To logon to EAC, you will need to authenticate with a user account that has the required permission to logon. I will logon with the same user who was used to install Exchange Server. My user account before installing Exchange was a member of Schema Admins, Domain Admins and Enterprise Admins groups. After installing Exchange, it automatically became a member of Organization Management group"

Thanks Mark - so looks like you can access the console from anywhere, as its just a web app, and not installed on the server itself. i couldnt see from that link if in hybrid setups this EAC covers just your on-premise server, or also your exchange online mailboxes too? Can you confirm? Presume theres a seperate console for the exchange online mailboxes?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.
