  • Hi, I am trying to setup Azure Active Directory in a lab with a trial account as apparently it is possible to do this. I have created an Azure AD account and have download the Azure AD connect client. When running through the installer I am asked to enter my username and password. The issue I have is that my account is not in the correct format Could anyone please tell me how I find out, or setup the correct account in order to complete the setup pf Azure AD Connect.

  • There will be two times user credentials asked during Azure AD Connect installation. First time Global Administrator credentials are required to connect to Azure AD tenant. Then Enterprise Admin credentials required to connect to on-premise AD. Refer: Azure AD Connect Installation which describes all the steps you will go through while installation of Azure AD Connect.
