We will put some mailboxes on Office 365 and integrate with Exchange server. I see some article that I need to install Directory Synchronization server in my existing AD. Is there any configuration example to show how it works.

I want to integrate the Cloud mailbox with my current Exchange mailboxes.

Thx

When you state "integrate", what exactly do you mean? Are you planning on migrating all your exchange to O365 or you just want to have coexistence (some mailboxes in O365 and some on Exchange)? Are you planning on having the cloud mailbox users log in with the on-premise active directory accounts? What version of Exchange are you running?

Can you please provide some more details as to exactly what it is you are trying to accomplish?
If you have existing user accounts in an on-premises directory, you don't want to re-create all of those accounts in Office 365 and risk introducing differences or errors between the environments. Directory synchronization helps you mirror those accounts between your online and on-premises environments. With directory synchronization, your users don't have to remember new information for each environment, and you don't have to create or update accounts twice.
