Creating the Hybrid Environment via the Hybrid Connection Wizard - Link

To start migrating mailboxes and Exchange recipients to the Exchange Online, you first need to enable and configure your Exchange On-premises environment and run the Hybrid Connection Wizard.

MRS Proxy Enable
As the Exchange 2013 server is Internet facing for the Hybrid configuration, the server will need be MRS Proxy enabled. To confirm if the server is mrsproxy enabled, run the following script -

Exchange PowerShell -
Get-WebServicesVirtualDirectory | fl server,mrs*
As you can see by the output, the server is not mrsproxy enabled -

To set all servers to MRSProxy Enabled, run the following script.
Get-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -ADPropertiesOnly | Where {$_.MRSProxyEnabled -ne $true} | Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -MRSProxyEnabled $true

Confirm that MRSProxy is now enabled -


Run the Hybrid Configuration Wizard -

Perform the following on the On-Premises Exchange Server.
Add the EAC site to your trusted sites.
