What will be affected when ADSync Server is down ?

    Question

  • Hi,

    We are using Office 365 with ADSync and ADFS Servers on premise.

    We would like to know if the ADSync Server is down, what service will be affected ?

    1) Can users use mail via Outlook client on site ?  If Outlook authentication is via ADFS Server, I cannot see any problem.  Is it correct ?

    2) If end users change their password (Like: Password has been expired due to Domain Password Policy) when the ADSync Server is down, can they still use Outlook Client to access Email on site ?  Can they access mail via OWA ?  My understanding is that both Outlook Client or OWA authentication are via ADFS Server and thus they should not have problem in accessing Email both method.  Is it correct ?

    3) If it doesn't affect Outlook Mail access, what is affected when the ADSync Server is down ?

    Thanks
