Hi

We looking to setup Office365 and would like to connect this to our local AD.

 

We have installed AD Connect using the default settings and things are sycing into 365. 

 

This is what AD Connect is saying in 365:

The questions we have are:

 

1) Why does Directory Sync enabled say "FALSE" - shouldn't it say TRUE?

2) Why does Password sync  enabled say "FALSE"

3) Why isn't there a Directory Sync Service Account listed?

 

Any advise would be appreciated

 

Thanks

Andrew

As long as you can see the actual objects in the portal, you should be fine. And if you need additional information about the sync, you can use PowerShell or the Azure AD blade (https://aad.portal.azure.com/#blade/Microsoft_AAD_IAM/ActiveDirectoryMenuBlade/AzureADConnect).
