Installing Windows Azure Active Directory Sync
Note
Although the message in Figure 4-10 states that Active Directory synchronized
objects can be edited only on-premises, remember that you can still create cloud
identities using any UPNs from domains that are verified and associated to your
Office 365 tenant. Properties for cloud identities can be edited from the admin
center or through Windows PowerShell. Furthermore, after directory
synchronization is activated, it might take up to 24 hours before it is truly enabled. Therefore,
you might have to wait before proceeding with Windows Azure Active directory
synchronization installation. If you need to deactivate directory synchronization, it
might take up to 72 hours to be deactivated.
Installing Windows Azure Active Directory Sync
Before installing Windows Azure Active Directory Sync, it is important to know how many
AD objects you will be synchronizing. At the time of this writing, directory synchronization
is limited to 20,000 AD objects.
However, this does not mean you cannot synchronize more than 20,000 AD objects. This
limit was imposed so the Office 365 team will be aware of any large-scale synchronization.
Therefore, if you have more than 20,000 AD objects to synchronize, please contact your
Microsoft representative. Microsoft will work with your organization to help synchronize
more than 20,000 objects. Microsoft might also use this awareness to ensure that your
Office 365 tenant is provisioned in a way that it can optimally support more than 20,000
objects.
Directory synchronization was available in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions when it first
debuted for Business Productivity Online Services (BPOS). However, for Office 365, you
need to install the 64-bit version of the Windows Azure Active Directory Sync tool. In fact,
the 32-bit version is no longer available for you to download. If you have the 32-bit version
installed, it is recommended that you upgrade to the 64-bit version because the 32-bit
version is no longer supported.
