Setup ADConnect for private domain

Copper Contributor



In our organization we are using private domain name (.local), how I can setup this domain for ADConnect? I'll try to create Private DNS domain zone. But in additional domain names can't verify this domain name.

If you have your own domain, you should first add it to the Azure Portal. Then you should adjust the local AD, namely the UPN of the users. If you do not have your own domain, you can easily install and set up Azure AD Connect. The accounts in Azure AD are then extended with the standard DNS suffix. For example The last part from the UPN "" are the standard DNS Suffix from Microsoft. Regards Tom Wechsler


@TomWechsler thank for answer.


How I can add my domain if his internal name (.local) and I can't verify them? I'll add our public domain name, but we are not using him. 

You cannot add/verify the local domain in the Azure Portal. You can set up Azure AD Connect without a verified domain. As mentioned, the accounts are then extended with the default DNS suffix from Microsoft.


Thank! One more question. I'll setup ADConnect and my first sync create all domain users on Azure Portal, after I'll set OU for sync and tried full sync but users still presents on Azure Portal, it's normal (timeout for removing)?


It was threshold limit :) thanks for answering, going to testing :)


It's a pleasure. Regards Tom Wechsler
