Configure the needed SharePoint services for hybrid search, including User Profiles, MySites, and the Application Management service.
3. (SharePoint Server 2013 only) Install the September PU for SharePoint Server 2013

3. Run Hybrid Picker

4. Quick test
Check to make sure hybrid sites features are working:
Log in to a SharePoint Server as a regular user. (Be sure you're a member of the correct audience if you used audiences.)
Click the Follow link at the top of the page.
You should see a small pop-up under Follow letting you know that you're following the site. Click this pop-up and notice that it navigates to your personal site, and the list of sites you're following in SharePoint Online.
