Adding Domains in FOPE - Be Aware RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Not really a question but I would like to document something that happed to me when I added another domain in FOPE and chose to use the primary email domain as the template.

    The primary email domain was DBEB enabled and new domain was also DBEB enabled because it used the primary domain as a template.

    When I enabled the new domain, everything worked until the Directory Sync Tool kicked in. It sync'd accounts of the new domain and disabled accounts of the primary domain.

    The result was DBEB blocking mail for users from the primary domain

    As the Admin Center accounts belonged to the primary domain, I could not log in to disable DBEB.

    The issue was easily resolved by MS support disabling DBEB and resetting the main Admin Center account, but it would have been much better if it had never happened.

    Hopefully someone else adding a new domain in FOPE will read this and disable DBEB before enabling the new domain.
