asked on

question on office 365

Dear experts,

I just joined a company that has office 365 and I am network guy but will be helping with Microsoft stuff and need some guidance.

first thing I noticed is that our domain is for example gts.ca but users are logging into office365 cloud using username@office365.microsoft.com.

What suggestions do you have to fix that? I want everyone to login user their domain account which is username@gts.ca. I have admin rights to the portal but don't want to make a change with out expert advice.

I thought it is simple as just renaming the domain in the portal and make sure the users use the same password for both AD and Microsoft cloud.

Is there another way.
And what's from stopping you from renaming that domain to microsoft.com or similar? You can only use domains you own, thus the verification process. As for passwords, the Office 365 password policy (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/jj943764.aspx) will most likely be different compared to the on-prem one, so while the users might have the same passwords now, they will most certainly end up with different ones in the long run.
