    You can scope by AD OU

    Just be careful... if you move a user who was sync'd into an OU that's not sync'd then that will cause the Office 365 object to get deleted.

    Is the server behind a proxy? If so, check your proxy logs for entries from the server's IP and see what it tells you. You may need to define an authentication exception.

    I suppose it also helps if I was not a numpty. I hadn't activated dirsync on 365 control panel!!

    Says it can take 24 hours but I activated it today and an hour or so later it was done.

    How do I specify by OU?

    I hate to pull out LMBTFY, but here goes!

    Let me Bing that for you!

    Configuring the management agent is a simple, but potentially dangerous process. It goes without saying: don't be tempted to fiddle with your production environment otherwise you could end up deleting users by accident or altering the way the MA works into non-supportable state!

    When you move an object into an OU that isn't synchronised by DirSync it will process the object as a deletion in Azure AD meaning you could lose data.

    Hope that helps!

    Hi all,

    Just got this up and running myself. It's not bad, although markedly more convoluted that the Google Apps equivalent (however it does work a little better by not requiring password resets). It's nice that they have an equivalent at all I guess. Setting up AD FS was never something that excited me, but as Microsoft pointed out (I can't remember where, sorry). AD FS is true SSO, whereas this is "same sign-on". I'd imagine that if you want your clients to be able to fire up and logon automatically you're going to need AD FS.

    Anyway, it's there and it seems to work. It's a shame they couldn't have added in some sensible way to license users automatically though.

    L8r.

    Bit stuck, rooting round the internet for SIP and TXT advise. Do these need setting on the internets DNS that hosts my domain name?

    Think its to do when I set up ADFS previously. Really wish it was as easy as Googles.

    Yes it should be on your internet DNS (in our case the one held by SWGfL) and internally if you have any reference to the same domain name (which we do for seemless redirecting of the FQDN to the local IP instead of traffic going out and back in again)

    Just to clarify though does it only sync from AD to Azure i.e if I delete a user in the Office 365 admin portal it won't delete the AD account? and if I scope it to sync on one OU for testing it will create a new user account for any ad account created within that OU but it's not going to go and delete all my Office 365 users as they don't exist in that OU?

    Does MS support an official way to scope OUs? The stuff on Bing is not for Azure and is a bit confusing. The management agents are named differently and I can't work out how to scope individual OU's.
