Hope this helps!

22.pngOutlook anywhere(rpc/http) is enabled on exchange 2010 server
but clients(outlook 2016) connect to exchange via RPC/TCP(outlook connection status)
I need to redirect clients to connect via rpc/http before migrating mail flow?

You don't need to worry about changing this setting.  Once the mailbox has been moved to the new server, the user will need to restart Outlook and the new connection methos (RPC/HTTP) will be used automatically
As soon as you installed Exchange 2016 and right after finishing configuring virtual directories, you should have switched client access to Exchange 2016. The protocol should be either Outlook Anywhere or MAPI which is preferable. All the access to Exchange 2010 will be proxied from Exchange 2016. Outlook Anywhere is enabled by installing a corresponding (probably the same) SSL certificate on Exchange 2016 as you had on 2010. For MAPI - confirm
Get-OrganizationConfig | fl *mapi*

Open in new window

returns True, as well it will require configuration of the corresponding MAPI virtual directory, confirm by
Get-MapiVirtualDirectory | fl server, Name,ExternalURL,InternalURL

Open in new window

That would be MAPI/HTTP, not RPC/HTTP.
