I have 12 licenses for Office 365 Business Premium that I can manage in Azure. I have a SBS 2003 on premise with active directory. I will remove the SBS 2003 and install a new Win Server 2016 Essentials for Active Directory (no migration, with so few users, I'll start fresh). I would like to use the user info in Azure for my domain active directory and then sync with Azure AD Connect.
How do I setup the Active Directory in the new Windows Server 2016? Just enter the users individually? Using the same names that are used in Office 365? And then match them in the Azure AD Connect?
