New Local Active Directory Server for an Existing Office 365 Environment.
Posted on 2016-07-27
I'm looking for a bit help with a small office using Office 365. They have about 30 workstations but do not have a server onsite. They are using Office 365 for Exchange, SharePoint, etc. The problem is maintaining user accounts and network printers on all 30 workstations is getting very painful. So, I'd like to deploy a small server and create a local AD Domain and sync all of the user accounts from Office 365 to the new DC. I've read several articles and TechNet docs about syncing with Azure AD Sync but everything I've read deals with syncing current domains or migrating from local domains to O365 and not vice versa. Has anyone tried doing this or know of a process for it?
