Azure Ad Connect provides organizations with the ability to synchronize their On-premises users and groups to Azure Active Directory. When synchronizing objects to Azure, administrators have the ability to control which users or groups are synchronized to the cloud. Furthermore, it’s also possible to select which user or group attributes are synchronized. Some organizations may have Security policies that prohibit certain information, such as phone numbers and addresses, from appearing in the cloud. Luckily, attributes can be easily filtered by unchecking the attribute on the AD connector object in Synchronization Service Manager.
I’m going to stray off of the beaten path and post a blog regarding an Active Directory DNS issue that I experienced. Although it’s not Exchange server related, I thought this would be worth publishing as I’m sure others have encountered this issue.
We noticed that client DNS records were not getting updated in a timely manner. More specifically, this was occurring primarily with clients that were connecting remotely to the internal network via VPN.
