Sync Active Directory OU's to separate Office 365 accounts

In a multi-tenant AD setup (where each tenant has their own OU within Active Directory, with security settings so users can't see outside of their respective OU), is it possible to sync each OU to a separate Office 365 account for hosted exchange (as each OU is a separate tenant with a separate domain name for email)?

I would want to keep the sync persistent, so users are automatically created, passwords updated, etc.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can, but you will have to run a different sync instance for each tenant. Make sure to configure the appropriate filtering as detailed for example here: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/active-directory-aadconnectsync-configure-filtering/#configure-organizational-unitbased-filtering

Vasil, thank you. To clarify, can i have multiple sync instances running at once (not literally at the same minute, but all active and syncing regularly) on the same AD server, each one for a different tenant, to their respective o365 account?

Well not on the same server, you will have to use different machine for each instance.

Vasil, so if i need a separate machine for each instance, what are the requirements of that machine? Can it just be a member server on the domain, as long as the tool is running with the right credentials? or does it need to be run from a domain controller?
Vasil Michev (MVP)Commented:
No, regular member server. Few years back it was not even supported to run it on DC :)
