How can I set msExchMailboxGUID attribute to null?

Answer:

This can be set within Synchronization Rules Editor.

Notes:

  • This is not supported, if you have performed a directory synchronization using DirSync.
  • It is supported, if performing a directory synchronization using AAD Sync, or AAD Connect.
  • For more details on the correct order of steps to follow for directory synchronization, refer to KB004336.

 

Instructions:

 

Run the Synchronization Rules Editor as an administrator.

 

 

Click on In from AD – User Exchange to edit the Inbound Rule Type.

 

 

Select Transformations. Find the msExchMailboxGuid attribute.

Change it to the following:

Expression - msExchMailboxGuid - NULL - Checkmark Apply Once - Click on Update

 

 

Enable AADSync or AAD Connect and perform a full synchronization.

Now users may be assigned an Exchange Online license, and MigrationWiz may be used to migrate their mailboxes to Office 365.
