- When you move a mailbox to Office 365 from your on-premises environment, you receive the following error message: When you view the IIS logs in the C:\Inetpub\Logs folder of the on-premises Exchange Server 2010 hybrid deployment server, you see a "405" error for the connection to the associated endpoint. The endpoints are as follows:Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.
<Date> <Time> 10.10.10.1 POST /EWS/mrsproxy.svc - 443 test\admin 10.10.10.12 - 405 0 1 15W
- The mailbox move endpoint is MrsProxy.svc.
- The Autodiscover endpoint is Autodiscover.svc.
- When you run the Get-federationInformation -Verbose cmdlet, you receive one of the following error messages:
- Request failed with http status 405: method not allowed
- Execution of the Get-FederationInformation cmdlet had thrown an exception. This may indicate invalid parameters in your Hybrid Configuration settings.
- Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation
- When you try to set up the hybrid deployment in the Hybrid Configuration wizard, you receive the following error message:INFO:Cmdlet: Get-FederationInformation

C:\Windows\Microsoft.Net\Framework\v3.0\Windows Communication Foundation\
- Type the following command, and then press Enter:
Note You may have to restart IIS after you run this command.
