I have converted over to Office 365 (Enterprise E1). None of the articles online tell where to point your Outlook or DNS so that clients in the domain can connect to Office 365. The OnRamp process completes successfully but there are no instructions as to what to do next.


Please advise,
Niles

In the MSOL portal log in as an admin user and on the left side click on Domains. Click the radio button next to the domain you are having issue with and then click the link "View DNS Settings". This will give you all of your necessary DNS settings for your intended purpose statement when you set up your account.

Issue solved.

I made a few points that should help:

 

·         Add a domain suffix ‘domain.net’ in local environment (if internal is .local).

·         Change the suffix for the users.

·         Add a forward lookup zone in dns for ‘domain.net’

 

·         Get a 3rd party cert with the Common name ‘<service name.domain.net>’

and dns as ‘<service name.domain.net’,  ‘enterpriseregistration.domain.net’

 

Note: As discussed below are the common service names used

sts, fs, adfs. They can be anything as per your requirement though.

 

·         We will have to then remove the adfs role and iis role.

·         Then install the adfs role again and run the configuration wizard with the new certificates.

 

·         Try to access the webpage internally.

https://<service name.domain.net/adfs/ls/idpinitiatedsignon.aspx

 

For eg if you have chosen the endpoint as sts

https://sts.domain.net/adfs/ls/idpinitiatedsignon.aspx

 

·         After that comes accessing the same link from external network.

For that you will have to configure the Firewall such that the requests coming from external clients are sent to the ADFS server.


·         Once the firewall and dns is configured then you should be able to access

https://<service name.domain.net/adfs/ls/idpinitiatedsignon.aspx

from the external network.

 

·         Once we are able to access it we should be able to sign on successfully.

 

·         After we make sure that this works, the last step will be federating the domain using the command in Azure Active Directory module for Powershell

Connect-MsolService

Credentials for onmicrosoft.com account

Convert-MsolDomainToFederated -DomainName domain.net.
