AD Connect sync users without proxyaddress RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI,

    Is it possible to sync users to office 365 without proxyaddresses atribute and without email address? We are starting new company with 20 user and those users will be synced from on premises to office 365 tenant. In the active directory I created those users but they don't have entry in email address and nothing in proxyaddresses attribute. I heard that proxyaddresses attribute must be populated in some cases but I don't know when. Can someone please help

  • Hi,

    Yes, of course. You can sync users to Office 365 but if your proxyaddresses field is empty then when you sync user to office 365 and when you assign license to that user the primary e-mail address will be @onmicrosoft.com

  • When you run hybrid deployment all changes need to be made on-premises. One example how you can add it beased on UPN:

    $searchbase = "path"
    $properties = 'userprincipalname', 'proxyaddresses'
    Get-ADUser -filter * -SearchBase $searchbase -Properties $properties |
    
        ForEach{
    
         Set-ADUser $_ -add @{proxyAddresses="SMTP:"+ $_.GivenName + '.' + $_.Surname +"@domain.com"
             
    }}

  • Thank you so much for the answer guys. Is there a way to populate proxyaddress for all users? I want that they have E-mail address same as their UPN? Can this be changed after sync? I tried to modify this on one user but I run into error. Another solution could be to delete all in offoxe 365 and start again.
