However, when you run the Hybrid Configuration wizard, the wizard doesn't complete successfully, and you receive a Get-OrganizationConfig is not recognized error message. The full text of this message resembles the following:

The Hybrid Configuration wizard depends on the availability of an Office 365 plan that can access the Get-HybridMailflowDatacenterIPs cmdlet. The error message indicates that the subscriptions that you currently have can't access this cmdlet.
