Detailed Description

The OnPremisesOrganization object represents an on-premises Exchange organization configured for hybrid deployment with a Microsoft Office 365 tenant organization. It's used with the Hybrid Configuration wizard and is typically created automatically when the hybrid deployment is initially configured by the wizard. You can use the Get-OnPremisesOrganization cmdlet to view the properties of the OnPremisesOrganization object in the Office 365 tenant.

Manual modification of this object may result in hybrid deployment misconfiguration. We strongly recommend that you use the Hybrid Configuration wizard to modify this object in the Office 365 tenant.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Hybrid deployment configuration" entry in the Exchange and Shell Infrastructure Permissions topic.
