Applies to: Exchange OnlineExchange Server 2016 Enterprise EditionExchange Server 2016 Standard Edition More

Note The Hybrid Configuration wizard that's included in the Exchange Management Console in Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 is no longer supported. Therefore, you should no longer use the old Hybrid Configuration wizard. Instead, use the Office 365 Hybrid Configuration wizard that's available at http://aka.ms/HybridWizard. For more information, see Office 365 Hybrid Configuration wizard for Exchange 2010.

PROBLEM


When you run the Hybrid Configuration wizard, you receive the following error message:
ERROR:Updating hybrid configuration failed with error 'System.Management.Automation.Remoting.PSRemotingTransportException: Processing data from remote server failed with the following error message: The user "<>/Users/Administrator" isn't assigned to any management roles. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.

CAUSE


The user account that you're using to run the Hybrid Configuration wizard doesn't have sufficient permissions.

SOLUTION


You must be an Exchange administrator to run the Hybrid Configuration wizard. To resolve this problem, add the administrator account to the Domain Admins group or to another group whose permissions resemble those of the Domain Admins group.
