Office 365 Post Migration Questions
Posted on 2014-10-03
We have just completed our cutover migration to Office 365 with DirSync and I like a few things clarified that I cannot seem to find direct answers to online.
1- We have an on-premise exchange server that is linked to Office 365. I would expect to be able to add/modify email addresses here, but can only do so using ADSI or the Attribute editor in AD. IS this correct? Can I not manage email addresses using Exchange?
2- Secondary addresses added using ADSI with a precurser of smtp: function but do not appear in Office 365's email address list. Is this correct?
3- Single Sign on works, in that the users AD domain password also works for Office 365. Is there some way to extend this functionality? Example: Setting up a new mail profile for a user, autodiscover finds the account, but I still must enter their password to complete the sync. Can single sign on extend to profile setup? When a user changes their password, they must re-enter it in Outlook to re-connect. Can SSO handle this so that their password is detected from the domain?
Thanks for all the help! I am a champion Googler, but their appear to be no straight answers to any of the above!
