Removing Original Exchange 2010 server from Hybrid Environment

I have an Exchange 2010 hybrid environment. We use Office 365 for our mail now, but keep the hybrid environment as we manage users, etc on-premise and do some SMTP relaying against the hybrid server. I'm to the point where I want to remove the old Exchange server from the environment and have the hybrid server do all of the work. I have a link from MS that talks about how to do this. But I have some concerns. For example, if I look at my Exchange server I have all of the pieces parts like Organization, Server, etc to make it work. If I look at the hybrid server, I do not have all of those parts in the Exchange management console. On the hybrid server I see the Org Config object, but not the server one. I am concerned if these missing parts will appear once I go thru the process of removing the original Exchange server.

It is recommended to have one server onpremise for managing O365.
What do you mean by hybrid server?

Pre-O365, we had an on-premise Exchange 2010 server. When we went to O365, our consultants set up a second Exchange server as a hybrid server. I don't know the method he did to create this second server. We want to take the old original Exchange server out of the environment now and run with only the hybrid server.  However, as I said, I have a concern about the pieces I see missing in the EMC on the hybrid server. Some of them are essential to the running of the environment. I've had two Exchange servers in my environment in the past as I've been doing upgrades, but as I remember, the one I was moving to was a mirror of the one I was migrating from, except for the differences in the Exchange software versions. In this case, the both run Exchange 2010.

The missing server roles option in EMC is because of limited RBAC role to the logged in account. It has limited permissions.

Try to login with a administrator user and see whether you see all options.

If yes the you don't need to worry it was before of rbac role.

MAS... I ran the command. Both servers are reporting Version 14.3 (Build 123.4)

Thanx to both of you. I had been logging on with a domain admin account, but it was probably not the account that was used during the setup of the second server and it's typically not the one I use on the original Exchange server. When I logged on with this other user, the EMC looks fine.
