  • Forum Reply: RE: Change IP Address on DirSync Server

    Hi TheaChristian, The short answer is no. Changing ISP won’t affect the connectivity between on-premises DirSync and Office 365. It uses an on-premises admin account and an Office 365 admin account to set up the connection. If you encounter any issues, please let me know. Best Regards, Bruce

    Hi Scottey, Which tool did you use to sync on-premises to Office 365, DirSync tool or AAD Sync? Generally, when users are synced from on-premises to Office 365, they are linked via the OjbectGuid. If the ObjectGuid isn’t changed, you can remove the old sync tool and install a new one on the...
  • Forum Reply: RE: Manual password sync in hybrid setup

    Hi Ron, you don´t need to force dirsync to have the password synced to 365. As soon as the password is changed it should take less than 5min to get that change synced to 365. What you can do is go to the Dirsync server event viewer and look for events 656 (change request) and 657 (change result...
