Installation and Configuration of Microsoft Entra Cloud Sync

Microsoft Entra Cloud Sync is an advanced synchronization solution that enables seamless integration of objects from Active Directory into Microsoft Entra ID.

For the on-premises infrastructure, only the installation of a lightweight agent is required, reducing complexity and enhancing efficiency.

Microsoft Entra Hybrid Join: The Configuration Guide for Administrators

Microsoft Entra Hybrid Join is an identity solution that allows devices to authenticate in both a Windows Server Active Directory domain and Microsoft Entra ID. This provides companies with the flexibility and security they need to effectively manage resources while ensuring a high level of security.

Microsoft Entra ID is built with global high availability. In conjunction with features such as seamless single sign-on (SSO) or Microsoft Entra Conditional Access, Microsoft Entra ID offers additional features that significantly increase security and can only be implemented at a high cost with a pure Windows Server Active Directory infrastructure.

With Microsoft Entra Hybrid Join, you get the best of both worlds (local and cloud) at the same time. The device has access to both Windows Server Active Directory and Microsoft Entra ID.

This blog article shows in detail the steps for configuring Microsoft Entra Hybrid Join.

Enable Microsoft Entra self-service password reset (SSPR)

Azure AD Connect: Enforcing TLS 1.2

Azure AD Connect no longer supports the following protocols because they are considered insecure.

  • TLS 1.0
  • TLS 1.1
  • 3DES (TLS_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA)

the following services may be affected by the deactivation of the protocols:

  • Azure AD Connect
  • Azure AD-PowerShell
  • Passthrough Authentication Agents (PTA)
  • Applications with Azure AD integration

With TLS 1.2, Azure AD Connect remains executable.

Azure AD Connect: Synchronize Directory Extensions

A local Active Directory can have directory extensions. For example, when installing Microsoft Exchange 15 extension attributes are created in Active Directory.

Die Werte dieser Verzeichniserweiterungen werden nicht mit Azure AD Connect synchronisiert. Wenn diese Werte in Azure AD benötigt werden, muss Azure AD Connect so konfiguriert werden, dass dies geschieht.
