Replica Active Directory domain controller on Windows Azure RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I want to extend my on premises active directory and Exchange to cloud.

    This is new environment greenfield. 

    I want to setup on premises AD and Exchange and i want to extend my AD on Windows Azure VM as replica.

    Exchange will be hybrid deployment in O365.

    My question here is:

    1) If i configure replica by extending my on premises AD, do i need to have DirSync in on premises / Clode

    2) Do i need to have AD-FS, does it really required.?

    3) How my authentication will work on both on premises users with cloud users to access exchange resource.
