    Question Office 365 - @students sub domain and SSO Question

    Hello all.

    A couple of queries, if anyone can help i'd be most grateful.

    I'm rolling out student Email to Office 365 and have a query about DirSync and Federation services. The thing is each user in the school is on the domain organisation.org.uk. The staff have been using email using the naming convention Name@organisation.org.uk and are hosted internally, and to be honest I dont want to move these yet.

    The students were using email on Live@EDU with the address User@Students.organisation.org.uk. Each Student email account was originally created using a CSV file and were not AD syncronized so no SSO. As there were only a few test accounts created, I'm happy to recreate all these accounts.

    Now, as we move across to 365 I would really like to use SSO and Synchronize the Students using fed services and DirSync. However, I dont want to move the staff accounts. So Is it possible to Syncronize the Onsite domain (organisation.org.uk) With the 365 Email Domain (@Students.organisation.org.uk) and have the credentials for the onsite domain match the Students email Domain and allow SSO?

    Hope that makes some sort of sense.

    If you want to use DirSync, which is a pre-requisite for AD FS, then your users on-premise will need a UPN that matches up with what's in Office 365 which in your case would want to be @students.organisation.org.uk. Could you change the UPNs for your student users?

    It is possible to have users with a different UPN to their primary SMTP address (i.e. UPN: user@organisation.org.uk, SMTP: user@student.organisation.org.uk) in Office 365 but this is really not recommended.

    You can add an additional UPN suffix in ad.
