What is recommended way to do o365 AD integration with W2012R2 std AD server?

Basicly we just want to integrate usernames and passwords from AD to exiting o365 accounts, two email domains used in the same tenant.

Apx 60 usernames per email domain.

To me it seems that there will be a challenge to deal two email domains situation. Can users still login to Outlook using real email address?

Well, should I provide both domains there and select user by user the correct UPN Suffix?

Hmm.. actually not sure what "on premises Exchange organisation" means. But all users are sitting in the same office. They utilize the same DC which internal domain name is "MyDomain.local". Half of those has email syntax MyEmailDomain1.com and the other half has email syntax MyEmailDomain2.com. There is no On Premises Exchange Server involved.

All ready run ID Fix and now I'm thinking that there is no problem at all. I just need to provide correct UPN suffix (MyEmailDomain1.com or MyEmailDomain2.com) for all users and I would be good to carry on to next phase. Right?

BTW, isn't it so that I utilize IdFix Tool to edit the UPN Suffix?
yes you can, just Configure 2 federated domains (MyEmailDomain1.com or MyEmailDomain2.com) on your tenant and Install AADC to sync required objects
