How to: Setup ADConnect and Add Domain in Azure

Posted by Rory Monaghan on Nov 27, 2017 10:53:16 AM

Disclaimer: My experience with Azure, AWS and pretty much every cloud hosted service thus far tells me this post could become dated very quickly so this post should serve simply as a moment in time brain dump.

When rebuilding my homelab environment recently, I went through these steps again and thought others may find it useful so I documented to share my steps. In my scenario, I have MSDN credits for Azure, I opted not to use Active Directory Federation Services, if implanting for an organization, you may want to do that. I just wanted to sync my on premises active directory users and groups into Azure and use my existing domain.

Enabling Modern Authentication for Office

Posted by Aaron Parker on Jul 17, 2017 12:40:04 PM

Enabling Azure AD and Office 365 features including multi-factor authentication and Conditional Access will impact your users because they’ll need utilise App Passwords (one time passwords used for authentication with legacy applications). Unfortunately this will only serve to confuse users and result in calls to your service desk. Modern authentication is, of course, the way to improve user experience but it’s not enabled by default.
