Office365 DirSync & Usernames
Not a huge deal but was hoping for some input...
I just installed and setup Dirsync between our AD and Office365 accounts (not keen on setting up ADFS since I can't set it up in a redundant way) and it's working beautifully for the accounts we've already created in O365, the only problem is that our onsite AD usernames are first initial surname (e.g. JBloggs) and our email addresses are firstname.lastname@example.org. Is there anyway I can keep our current AD usernames but make Dirsync use the first.last e-mail format? This also breaks automatic login with MS Outlook when setting up accounts etc. As I say, not a huge deal really but I'd like to fix it without renaming all our AD accounts.
Right now if I make a new user in AD it is created automatically in O365 as JBloggs@school.xyz.sch.uk, rather than email@example.com.
Many thanks :)
