How do you get the free version of Microsoft Azure?

Hi,

We have a customer we are migrating to 365 from an on premise AD server. We have completed this using the active directory sync tool and Azure. We just downloaded the free trial of Azure as on the website it says there is a free version and that's fine for what we want it to do. We are now getting emails saying that our subscription is going to expire. The way I'm assuming Azure works is you can only download the trail and it gives you all the features and then if you don't sign up for a paid for package it will just disable all the paid for features and you can only use the free stuff?

My question is, is this correct? I don't wan't all the users in a few days to not be able to reset passwords or access emails or anything like that. So just wanted to clarify if I need to select what type of subscription I want to use?

Regards,

James

Can you clarify what exactly you are referring to? What exactly have you downloaded, AADSync or?

Azure is the Microsoft IaaS/PaaS offering, and includes tons of services in it. Azure AD is what Office 365 uses behind the scenes, and it's indeed free. You dont even need an Azure subscription to use it. Azure AD Premium is a subscription that offers some more features on top of that, but again, not required. Azure RMS is yet another service that can complement Office 365. Which one of those are you referring to?

Both dirsync and Azure AD Sync are free for use, I doubt you will be receiving any emails about them.
