How to remove Hybrid Configuration between Exchange 2016 and Office 365 After Migration

We have a Hybrid Configuration with Exchange 2016 and Office 365 ( Azure AD Connect, ADFS). We have migrated all mailboxes to office 365/Exchange online.

Now we want to remove the Hybrid and Azure ADConnect Configurations. Can you please let me know the best way to remove all the configurations so all the mailbox users can be authenticated directly from office 365 as we do not want anymore to have a ADFS and Azure AD connect along with on-premises Exchange.

What is best practices to achieve this? Can any one please shared the best articles?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Think I answered this one already on the TechNet forums, but still:

1) Disable federation, either by changing the auth options via AAD Connect or running the Convert-MsolDomainToStandard cmdlet. If you need detailed instructions, here's an example article: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/17857.dirsync-how-to-switch-from-single-sign-on-to-password-sync.aspx

2) After federation is disabled, remove AAD Connect and follow the instructions here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn931280(v=exchg.150).aspx

You already got answer above for your quiz, however....
Why you want to remove Azure Ad connect?
so you will simply manage accounts in cloud separated from AD?
OR, you are decommissioning AD as well?
just wanted to know the thought process....

Hi Mahesh,

Yes we are plaining to decommission AD as well. We only want to manage the users and mailboxes in cloud/office 365.
