  • Forum Reply: RE: not all AD users showing in Office 365

    Hi John, If the Synchronization Service Manger (miisclient.exe) does not display any errors or warnings for this synchronization/update action, it shows the DirSync for Office 365 service runs properly. The first possible cause of this behavior that comes to mind is the DirSync filtering, so I'd...
  • Forum Reply: RE: DirSync with existing users

    Hi lljfk12345, After enabling Dirsync with password sync, the credentials of the Office 365 users who are synced from on-premises server will be managed in the local AD, but the credentials of the users who are not synced from the local AD still can be managed from the Office 365. You are right. For...
  • Forum Reply: RE: Connect AD users from one domain to two(multiple) different Office 365 tenants

    Hi gud_thor, Currently, you either have to use the FIM Connector for Office 365 or you can use multiple Dirsync servers syncing to each unique tenant. The key is you cannot sync the same objects into the different tenants. You must create Dirsync filtering on each Dirsync server. Syncing the same objects...

    Hi Andy, Currently, there is not a detailed official process to do the move directly. To avoid other unexpected issue, we need to re-configure DirSync and ADFS on the new servers.

  • Forum Reply: RE: Already using Office 365, to late to deploy AD sync for existing accounts?

    Hi Jack, No, it’s not too late. You can use SMTP matching to match your on-premises AD users to their cloud identities, and then sync the AD passwords for the matched users. Do not directly deploy DirSync. For detailed steps about SMTP matching, you can refer to How to use SMTP matching to...

    Hi mtwelve, When DirSync is enabled, for synced users, many attributes are managed by on-premises such as emailAddress, UPN etc. If both E-mail attribute and proxyAddress are empty for the on-premises user, the primary address in Office 365 will be user@domain.onmicrosoft.com . This is the expected...

  • Forum Reply: RE: User ID change?

    Hi Brian, To narrow down the issue, I’d like to confirm more details: 1. Do you mean that the UPN doesn’t sync with AD while the email address is synced? 2. How many users are affected by the issue, some specific users or all the users? 3. Have you added the domain suffix into the local...

    Hi MattBornhorst, I suggest you keep DirSync disabled and make sure that only the original global admin account (e.g. admin@domain.onmicrosoft.com ) is available in Portal, then go through the Cutover Migration procedure.

    Hi Tristin, In a DirSync environment, attributes synced with Office 365 are managed by on-premises. And that's the reason that you cannot edit SMTP addresses in Exchange Online directly. The issue may occur if the on-premises user’s ProxyAddresses attribute is empty while the UPN suffix doesn’t...
