We currently run an on-premise 2016 AD server as well as a completely separate Azure AD with 0365 integration.
I know I can connect the two with the "Azure AD Connector" tool however when I tried this out on a test domain I found that it duplicated entries rather than merge existing ones together.
Is there any way so that I can merge my on-premise with my Azure so that I have a single management pane rather than having to create/modify users in two separate places. Ultimately my aim is to be able to create a user on-prem and it gets sync'd to Azure with a new O365 account and email address set up automatically. Is this possible and if so how?
First though I need to be able to merge the two databases into one seamless operation rather than having the two duplicated
Many thanks for that - would it be a case that once all setup and working, I would be able to create a new user on-prem (name, username, email addr) and when the sync is finished with the Connector it would create the new user in AAD and create a new inbox within O365/Exchange Online?
