Azure MA. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi folks,

    I've just been looking at this MSDN article in relation to the AAD MA and was surprised to read that it does not support password notification - or at least that's how I've interpreted the note in the Operations section.

    Can someone confirm my understanding of this article that we can no longer use PCNS to target the AAD MA? (I say "no longer" in the context that I was able to do this with OLMA under Live@EDU)

  • Hi Lain,

    yes you are right, AAD MA does not support password hash sync, the the AAD Sync Tool (replacement for DirSync) does also not support this.

    You can only use DirSync for password hash sync.

    Both, AAD Connector for FIM and AADSyncTool are designed to use password less Single SignOn scenarios using ADFS to authenticate against the on-prem DC.
