I am looking to setup a company in the cloud using Exchange Online only. Microsoft has updated dirsync to allow password sync with it.
However, I'm working in a lab and noticing after setting up dirsync that various objects with Exchange such as hiding from GAL cannot be performed in the cloud. They need to be done on-premise. However, I've not setup Exchange on-premise.
If I am looking for even a 100% cloud email I've got to setup an Exchange Server on-premise to use the dirsync tool?
I didn't want to get as elaborate as ADFS for this. Can someone guide me...
