If you deployed a hybrid Exchange environment (on-premises Exchange and Office 365), follow these steps to connect it to Hybrid Calendar Service. To support Hybrid Exchange environments, you must set up an Office 365 and on-premises Exchange service record on the Expressway-C.

            
1    Configure Hybrid Calendar Service for on-premises Exchange by adding an Exchange service record.
  • You must enable and configure auto dscovery when you add the service record—Select Use Active Directory to enable auto discovery.
  • We do not support manually entered Exchange addresses in Exchange hybrid environments.
2    Enable Hybrid Calendar Service for users who have mailboxes in on-premises Exchange.
3    Start Calendar Connector and ensure that the activated users are subscribed.
4    As a test, in a meeting invitation in Outlook, OWA, or your calendar client, add @spark to the Location field; verify that this step creates a Cisco Spark space for an activated user.
5    Stop the Calendar Connector. Do not proceed until you see that it fully stopped.
6    Add a new exchange service record for Office 365.

For the impersonation account domain, the actual Office 365 domain must be used (e.g. account@contoso.onmicrosoft.com).

7    Enable Hybrid Calendar Service for users who have mailboxes in Office 365.
8    Start Calendar Connector and ensure that activated users in both on-premises and Office 365 are subscribed.
9    As a test, in an Outlook invitation, add @spark to the Location field; verify that this step creates a Cisco Spark space for both on-premises Exchange and Office 365 users.
 

 

Users with either on-premises Exchange or Office 365 mailboxes can now schedule meetings with @spark and @webex.
