Active Directory hosted in a Virtual Machine in Windows Azure - Office 365 integration for authentication RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

        My question is about integration between Office 365 and Active Directory hosted in a Virtual Machine on Windows Azure.

        I know that I can to create a VPN between my local organization and Windows Azure, than I can install a Active Diretory Replica (Domain Controller Replica) in a Virtual Machine in Windows Azure to replicate objects from my local Active Directory to Domain Controller hosted in a Virtual Machine in Windows Azure.

    My question is: Can I setup Office 365 to use the Active Directory hosted in a Virtual Machine in Windows Azure for user authentication?

    Thanks!

  • Yes you can. However you will need to setup an ADFS server on a windows azure vm as well. You will then need to connect the ADFS to your Office 365 account. (Basically you need to implement SSO)

    Take a look at this article MSDN Article on SSO

    Just keep in mind that you need to setup the ad and adfs server in azure vm's.

    I am already doing this for a client and know it works.
