365 AD Integration RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Technet,

    So me and my Partner at our company ADmire, have been working now long time to try using 365 AD intergration.

    So we got it worked, and if you have a computer on the local network, everything works fine.
    But.. if you have a computer outside our network, it doesnt work.

    And im pretty sure its because we own the domain ADmire.dk, and our local Domain on Domain Controller is ADmire.com,

    So i can see there will be some Domain conflict...

    But my biggest question is, that we thougt that Portal.microsoftonline.com would work for our work emails no matter if our domain controller goes down, but right now, if our domain controller goes down our Portal to microsoft also goes down.

    is this how it works, that our 365 always need Server to be online, or im i really doing it wrong.

    Hope there is any 1 who got some tips or great guides for help

    Many thanks from
    Stefan Kristiansen - IT Consult @ ADmire.dk

  • Hi,

    The domain admire.dk is in a managed state which means that authentication is done against azure active directory which means that if your domain controller goes down this should not impact your ability to sign-in to Microsoft Online Services. 

    If you were using a federated domain namespace, then this would be different as the authentication piece happens against a secure token service (i.e. AD FS) and so therefore if that server was to go down you wouldn't be able to sign-in. 

    I hope that helps, 

    James.

  • Hi,

    It seems like this issue is more related to Microsoft Azure Active Directory, I will move this thread to Microsoft Azure Active Directory Forum for a better help.
    Thank you for your understanding.
