Exchange Online Migration July 11 for Office of Research
Posted by Jody Austin on 02 July 2018 09:57 AM

By the end of this fiscal year, Ohio State will migrate all email accounts from local servers to Exchange Online from Microsoft. This will increase email storage, simplify integration with other MS Office services and improve stewardship of our resources by leveraging the high-quality cloud services that are now available.

The Office of Research is scheduled on Wednesday, July 11.  Your email, calendar items, contacts, tasks and notes will be migrated to the cloud after university business hours.  Please close your Outlook and Skype for Business/Lync clients at the end of your workday on July 11. After migration, we will send a follow-up email to confirm your account was migrated to Exchange Online successfully.

Because email accounts will be migrated in nightly batches, if you access other calendars and email accounts (in addition to your primary lastname.# account), you may notice a temporary disruption in permissions. Any interruption will be temporary and will only occur if some accounts that you access have been migrated online, and others have yet to be migrated. To help you prepare, an Exchange migration checklist and additional Skype tips are available online.

Your Outlook client or device should automatically reconfigure after your migration. If it did not reconfigure, be sure that you are using a supported client and/or mobile application.  You can check Microsoft's online system requirements for Office. These requirements also apply to Exchange Online.

If you have additional questions, please contact the IT Service Desk via online Self Service, or by phone at 614-688-4357 (HELP).
