Join this session to understand one of the most vital components of Azure AD and Office 365; synchronizing your local directory. We will go through step by step setting up a simple directory synchronization with Azure AD Connect all the way to setting it up in a multi-forest, multi-domain, and even multi-tenant scenario. We'll walk through the preparation steps you should perform before syncing, and then dig deep into installation and customization to make sure your directory syncs in just the way you want it.
Expect deep dives into identity transformations and filtering, single sign on methods such as Seamless SSO, and password methodologies including password sync, write-back, and pass-through authentication. We will also dig deep into PowerShell and the must know commands to maintain and troubleshoot your installation.
Finally, we will also show how to troubleshoot the more problematic issues, and how to setup a backup Azure AD Connect installation.
