Hi Cloud Sellers!
Some great news for those that are selling into the smaller SMB accounts that may be running a single Domain Controller and don’t have the resources to have a second server. Historically you were required to install the Office 365 Directory Sync (DirSync) tool (now called Windows Azure Directory Sync Tool) on a MEMBER SERVER but it was not possible to install it on a Domain Controller directly. That is no longer the case!
Now customers with only one server that is a DC can also take advantage of this Directory Sync tool…. which now also can do Password Sync as described in my colleague’s earlier blog post here.
The instructions on how to do this are posted on the Best Practices for Deploying and Managing the Windows Azure Active Directory Sync Tool Wiki site. Note that you will need to download the newest version (version 6553.0002 and newer) to be able to accomplish this.
Thanks! And good selling!
