Hey guys, I have a question. I may already know the answer but I haven't actually "done" this specific task in a production environment. The question(s) is pretty straigtht forward.
I currently have an environment where my domain AD (on-premise) is synchronized into Office 365's list of users for purposes of Sharepoint management, password sync and so on. Those users are tagged with a title "Synced with Active Directory" while other users that were created on the O365 web console, list as "In Cloud".
My question are as follow. If I were to remove, disconnect or essentially power off the onpremise server that is running the Active Directory Sync (DirSync).
- What will happen to those users on the O365 console tagged "Synced with Active Directory", do they essentially become manageable only through the web portal or will they break preventing those specific users from signing into O365 services?
- How will this effect future management - such as resetting passwords, renaming, etc.
- Lastly, will they get deleted after 'x' amount of time has passed?
Any other helpful pointers or comments are appreciated. Thank you for shedding additional light on this matters as well.
