exchange 2010 migration to 2016 with archived mailboxes

Dear Experts

My question about upgrade exchange 2010 sp3 to exchange 2016

But I have some sort of question mark about one scenario

In our case, we have mailboxes which they have the (( Mailbox Archive enabled ))

That means every mailbox located in tow databases the original database and the Archive databases

Plus we have DAG configured

I think all databases normal or for archiving from exchange perspective it just a databases

But my question after I finish the exchange 2010 and 2016 coexistence configuration and I want to start mailboxes migration

How the mailbox itself and his archived data with his policy will be migrated to a new server

What I have to configure and prepare to make the migration work probably and the end user will not lose or suffering anything

Note : we are using the builtin exchange arching feature

Kindly advice

Use Kernel Migrator for Exchange software to migrate Exchange 2010 sp3 to Exchange 2016. It can migrate all database, which is as you are referring Original & Archive with advanced filter options.
