I'm looking at converting some O365 groups which have been created with firstname.lastname@example.org to something@domain2 without causing the end-users too much interruption or any problems with Teams sites.
The infrastructure is local AD using AAD connect to sync.
I haven't done this before and ANY information you can provide would be much appreciated - hyperlinks ETC- just need a starting point.
I am not very experienced with Teams so I'd like to reduce t he risk for something going wrong to be as small as possible.

Considering your AAD Connect, are your Office 365 groups synced to local AD or are they cloud only? I find most Office 365 groups are cloud only even though the users are synced with AAD
If Cloud only, and assuming that the second domain is validated within the 365 tenant then the following article should work for you.
As always would recommend testing on a test group to ensure that it works before doing it on live groups.
Let me know how you get on - or if the groups are synced from local AD.

The groups are synced from local AD.

I have checked the AAD Connect configuration and all the " write back " features are disabled.
The AAD Connect client does have the attribute " groups " selected when running a sync my understanding is that because of this - the groups are synced to O365.
To my understand I would need to modify the attributes of the groups on local AD but I'm not sure if I can change the domain in the group properties and if that would have bad side effect on Teams.
The domain we want to change it to is verified in O365.
Looking forward to your reply.

Hi Adam & Chris
Thank you for pointing this out - I was confused in my first post with regards to exactly what was syncing from where.
Yep I am talking about Office 365 groups - I found a power shell command that lets me do what I need to which is https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Office-365-Groups/Is-there-a-way-to-change-O365-group-email-a...
I tested changing the domain from using the PS command in the above link and it works fine and does not seem to have a negative effect on user experience at all. ( If the user is logged into the teams group and you change the domain name of the group )
I'm happy to create another post for this but I was wondering if there is a way to manage teams permissions so that only one persons has the permissions? not everyone.. had a look at this yesterday and it looks like to my understanding you need a Azure premium sub.
