There are basically two flavors of AD syncing you can choose with Office 365 - Same Sign-On and Single Sign-On.  Same Sign-On is what you would get with a Staged Migration and the AD Sync Tool since it only syncs a subset of attributes and password hashes one way, e.g. no two way sync (except possibly passwords if you purchase additional Azure licensing).  True Single Sign-On is a full two way sync and the result of a Hybrid configuration using AD FS.  Make sense?

so you mean if I go by staged migration , am I not syncing all AD attributes on premise to office 365

what I asked was will my AD be gone from on premise if I do staged migration

also is dirsync now azure AD ? can I change password on 365 for AD user it will reflect on premise?

I though passwords change was one way from onpremise to cloud?

1. so you mean if I go by staged migration , am I not syncing all AD attributes on premise to office 365
    - Yes really only email attributes

2. what I asked was will my AD be gone from on premise if I do staged migration
    - No you can maintain the sync for as long as you need or indefinitely

3. also is dirsync now azure AD ? can I change password on 365 for AD user it will reflect on premise?
    - DirSync is still DirSync.  You can change passwords in 365 if you have Hybrid or a premium Azure license and the AD Sync Tool

4. I though passwords change was one way from onpremise to cloud?
    - It is a one-way sync if you use the AD Sync Tool and a Staged Migration

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
