Our company is trying to migrate from OnPrime to OnLine our email services. We are using Hybrid migration wizard, when i clicked over Finish button i got the error, see image bellow. User's image

Reviewing the log I found the following:

                                       {ErrorDetail=Microsoft.Exchange.Migration.MigrationServerConnectionFailedException: The connection to the server 'ceb7d730-8fec-40b6-ac37-f7840d8349e5.resource.mailboxmigration.his.msappproxy.net' could not be completed. ---> Microsoft.Exchange.MailboxReplicationService.MRSRemoteTransientException: The call to 'https://ceb7d730-8fec-40b6-ac37-f7840d8349e5.resource.mailboxmigration.his.msappproxy.net/EWS/mrsproxy.svc' timed out.

    Hi @Indalecio Trujillo

    From the error logs, it looks like an issue which might be related to network configuration.

    Just wondering is there any firewall running on your on-prem Exchange servers? If so, it's suggested to temporarily disabling them and rerun HCW to check how it goes.

    You can also follow the instructions in the link below to verify the connectivity between Exchange 2019 and Exchange Online by downloading the sample script and running Test-HybridConnectivity -TestO365Endpoints.
    Verify connectivity

    Moreover, noted in the thread below that a "(504) Gateway Timeout" error in HCW was finally resolved by disabling IPV6, so I assume you can have a go on your end as well and see if it can help.
    HCW Error 8078

    To resolve this issue, consider adjusting the timeout values in the relevant migration configuration settings by increasing the timeout value in the Request call or changing the Binding's SendTimeout. Additionally, checking network conditions and server responsiveness may aid in resolving the timeout issue.
