This is really really cool!

Azure Active Directory Domain Services is basicallyDomain Controller As A Service (DCaaS). You can:
Lift-and-shift apps to Azure more easily than ever
Use LDAP, Active Directory domain join, NTLM, and Kerberos authentication
Rely on a managed, highly-available service
Get started in minutes, pay as you go
Dev and test with no identity worries
Manage Azure virtual machines eectively using Group Policy

Azure Active Directory Domain Services lets you join Azure virtual machines to a domain without the need to deploy domain controllers.
Users can sign in to these virtual machines using their corporate Active Directory credentials and access resources seamlessly. You can
more-securely administer domain-joined virtual machines using Group Policyan easy, familiar way to apply and enforce security baselines
on all of your Azure virtual machines

The following features are available in the Azure AD Domain Services preview release.
Simple deployment experience: You can enable Azure AD Domain Services for your Azure AD tenant using just a few clicks. Regardless
of whether your Azure AD tenant is a cloud-tenant or synchronized with your on-premises directory, your managed domain can be
provisioned quickly.

Support for domain-join: You can easily domain join computers in the Azure virtual network that Azure AD Domain Services is available
in. The domain join experience on Windows client and Server operating systems works seamlessly against domains serviced by Azure AD
Domain Services. You can also use automated domain join tooling against such domains.
One domain instance per Azure AD directory: You can create a single Active Directory domain for each Azure AD directory.
Create domains with custom names: You can create domains with custom names (eg. contoso.local) using Azure AD Domain Services.
This includes both veried as well as unveried domain names. Optionally, you can also create a domain with the built-in domain sux
(i.e. *.onmicrosoft.com) that is oered by your Azure AD directory.
Integrated with Azure AD: You do not need to congure or manage replication to Azure AD Domain Services. User accounts, group
memberships and user credentials (passwords) from your Azure AD directory are automatically available in Azure AD Domain Services.
New users, groups or changes to aributes ocurring in your Azure AD tenant or in your on-premises directory are automatically
synchronized to Azure AD Domain Services.
NTLM and Kerberos authentication: With support for NTLM and Kerberos authentication, you can deploy applications that rely on
Windows Integrated Authentication.
Use your corporate credentials/passwords: Passwords for users in your Azure AD tenant work with Azure AD Domain Services. This
means users in your organization can use their corporate credentials on the domain for domain joining machines, logging in interactively
or over remote desktop, authenticating against the DC etc.
LDAP bind & LDAP read support: You can use applications that rely on LDAP binds in order to authenticate users in domains serviced
by Azure AD Domain Services. Additionally, applications that use LDAP read operations to query user/computer aributes from the
directory can also work against Azure AD Domain Services.
Group Policy: You can leverage a single built-in GPO each for the users and computers containers in order to enforce compliance with
required security policies for user accounts as well as domain joined computers.
Available in multiple Azure regions: See the supported Azure regions (hps://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/activedirectory-ds-regions/) page for a list of Azure regions in which Azure AD Domain Services are available.
High availability: Azure AD Domain Services oer high availability for your domain. This oers the guarantee of higher service uptimeand
resilience to failures. Built-in health monitoring oers automated remediation from failures by spinning up new instances to replace failed
instances and to provide continued service for your domain.
Use familiar management tools: You can use familiar Windows Server Active Directory management tools such as the Active Directory
Administrative Center or Active Directory PowerShell in order to administer domains provided by Azure AD Domain Services.

UPDATE 2015-10-21: Check hps://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/regions/#services (hps://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/regions/#services) to seeif


this service is (already) available or not in your region

(2015-10-07) Realistic Random Data Set To Import Into Some Identity Store
Posted by Jorge on 2015-10-07

i
Rate This

Have you ever required to have a large and realistic random data set to test your application or system in some way? Well, look no further!

With testing, performance/volume testing and/or logic testing (either declarative or coded, against small and large data sets) is meant.
Testing with correctly dened (custom) data is required to make sure the application/system behaves as you require it to behave. By using fake
data you are sure you do not get into trouble due to privacy or security related issues. You also do not have to beg for and jump through all
kinds of hoops to get the data. Depending, on your organization, you may also need to have a data set that includes special characters (e.g.
apostrophes) and/or very special characters (e.g. unicode characters from other languages)

Most likely, there are more websites out there, but the following 2 websites can help you out in dierent scenarios:

This website allows you to use your own dened schema. You can do that by selecting/dening the eld names and eld types or by importing
the eld headers of some CSV le you have. After importing the CSV headers, you still need to dene the eld types. When done, you can
preview the data or download it right away. The data can be downloaded in dierent formats, such as, but not limited to, CSV format. The
only downsides are the limited number of objects (max. 1000) and that it only supports western characters for names. If you need more data,
you need to pay a fee per year.

However, if you do not have a strict schema, you want up to 50.000 objects and you also require non-western characters for names (e.g.
japanese, chinese, arabic, etc.), then you might be interesting in using this website. You can generate data for a single object, or you can bulk
generate (order for free!) a very large amount of data up to 50.000 objects. If you need more objects, you just request it multiple times.
First you need to select the format and compression type. Secondly you need to select the name set(s), countries, gender and age of that
objects.

experience for connecting your on premises identity infrastructure to the cloud. Choose your topology and needs (single or multiple
directories, password sync or federation), and the wizard will deploy and congure all components required to get your connection up and
running including sync services, AD FS, and the Azure AD PowerShell module.
Azure AD Connect encompasses functionality that was previously released as Dirsync and AAD Sync. These tools will no longer be released
individually. All future improvements will be included in updates to Azure AD Connect, so that you always know where to get the most
current functionality.

Integrating your on-premises directories with Azure AD makes your users more productive by providing a common identity for accessing both
cloud and on-premises resources. With this integration users and organizations can take advantage of the following:
Organizations can provide users with a common hybrid identity across on-premises or cloud-based services leveraging Windows Server
Active Directory and then connecting to Azure Active Directory.
Administrators can provide conditional access based on application resource, device and user identity, network location and multifactor
authentication.
Users can leverage their common identity through accounts in Azure AD to Oce 365, Intune, SaaS apps and third-party applications.
Developers can build applications that leverage the common identity model, integrating applications into Active Directory on-premises or
Azure for cloud-based applications
Azure AD Connect makes this integration easy and simplies the management of your on-premises and cloud identity infrastructure.

(2014-11-05) Upgrading Azure AD Sync Services From GA (v1.0.419.911)

As mentioned in this blog post (hps://jorgequestforknowledge.wordpress.com/2014/11/01/a-new-version-of-azure-active-directorysync-services-has-been-released-v1-0-470-1023/) Microsoft released a new version of the Azure AD Sync Services. As mentioned in the release
notes (hp://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/dn835004.aspx) the upgrade is quite straightforward with a x, but only if you modied
one or more sync rules.
If you already have Azure AD Sync installed, there is one additional step you have to take in case you have changed any of the out-of-box
Synchronization Rules. After you have upgraded to the 1.0.470.1023 release, the synchronization rules you have modied are duplicated. For
each modied Sync Rule do the following:
Locate the Sync Rule you have modied and take a note of the changes
Delete the Sync Rule
Locate the new Sync Rule created by Azure AD Sync and re-apply the changes.

So lets try this and see what happens.


My starting point is the GA version

The version of the Azure Active Directory Sign-in Assistance/Client in this AADSync package is v7.250.4556.0, and the version that I already
had installed was also v7.250.4556.0. Because the versions are the same, it will not upgrade, but rather it will try to repair. On my test server, I
have ADFS v3.0 and AADSync on the same server. A few days ago I updated the Azure AD PowerShell CMDlets including the Azure Active
Directory Sign-in Assistance/Client. And thats why I ended up with that version already installed.
The solution here is to go to the Control Panel Programs and Features and uninstall the Azure Active Directory Sign-in Assistance/Client.

A few days ago, Microsoft has released a new version of the Azure Active Directory Sync Services (AADSync)

This version adds the following features:

Password synchronization from multiple on-premise AD to AAD


Localized installation UI to all Windows Server languages

https://jorgequestforknowledge.wordpress.com/category/windows-azure-a...

Upgrading from AADSync 1.0 GA


If you already have Azure AD Sync installed, there is one additional step you have to take in case you have changed any of the out-of-box
Synchronization Rules. After you have upgraded to the 1.0.470.1023 release, the synchronization rules you have modied are duplicated. For
each modied Sync Rule do the following:
Locate the Sync Rule you have modied and take a note of the changes.
Delete the Sync Rule.
Locate the new Sync Rule created by Azure AD Sync and re-apply the changes.

Permissions for the AD account

The AD account must be granted additional permissions to be able to read the password hashes from AD. The permissions to grant arenamed
Replicating Directory Changes and Replicating Directory Changes All. Both permissions are required to be able to read the password
hashes.

Release Note: Changing the AD password

After password sync has been enabled, if the password of the account used by the AD Connector is changed through the UI then password
synchronization must by disabled and re-enabled.

When seing up DirSync And Federation between your on-premise AD and Windows Azure AD to support identity sync and SSO, the most
important aribute to make sure everything works are the immutableID and the userPrincipalName.

Paul Williams from msresource.net has wrien a great number of blog posts about this, touching all kinds of related stu. See the following
blog posts:
Multi-forest SSO to O365: implementing multiple immutable IDs (hp://blog.msresource.net/2013/09/18/multi-forest-sso-too365-implementing-multiple-immutable-ids/)

Windows Azure Active Directory Connector part 2: multi-forest directory synchronization (hp://blog.msresource.net/2014/01
/22/windows-azure-active-directory-connector-part-2-multi-forest-directory-synchronization/)
Windows Azure Active Directory Connector part 3: immutable ID (hp://blog.msresource.net/2014/03/10/windows-azure-active-directoryconnector-part-3-immutable-id/)
Implementing Exchange Online with an existing on-premises identity management solution that provisions mailboxes(hp://blog.msresource.net
/2014/06/25/implementing-exchange-online-with-an-existing-on-premises-identity-management-solution-that-provisions-mailboxes/)

With regards to the implementation I used the string version of the objectGUID (AD) as the immutableID (sourceAnchor in AAD)) and the
UPN as the userPrincipalName (AAD). I achieved that by leveraging FIM with the AAD connector. Because of that I also had to implement
slighty dierent claims rules in ADFS for Azure AD/Oce 365. The rules in my ADFS v2.0 looked like:
@RuleName = Identity Claims objectGUID (Base64) To objectGUID (String)
c:[Type == hp://temp.org/identity/claims/adObjectGuidBase64org] (hp://temp.org/identity/claims/adObjectGuidBase64org])
=> add(store = String Processing Store, types = (hp://temp.org/identity/claims/adObjectGuidString) (hp://temp.org/identity/claims
/adObjectGuidString)), query = fromBase64GuidtoStringGuid, param = c.Value);
@RuleName = Identity Claims upn To UPN
c:[Type == hp://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2005/05/identity/claims/upn] (hp://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2005/05/identity/claims/upn])
=> issue(Type = hp://schemas.xmlsoap.org/claims/UPN (hp://schemas.xmlsoap.org/claims/UPN), Value = c.Value);
@RuleName = Identity Claims objectGUID (String) To ImmutableID
c:[Type == hp://temp.org/identity/claims/adObjectGuidString] (hp://temp.org/identity/claims/adObjectGuidString])
=> issue(Type = hp://schemas.microsoft.com/LiveID/Federation/2008/05/ImmutableID (hp://schemas.microsoft.com/LiveID/Federation
/2008/05/ImmutableID), Issuer = c.Issuer, OriginalIssuer = c.OriginalIssuer, Value = c.Value, ValueType = c.ValueType);
@RuleName = Identity Claims ImmutableID To Name ID
c:[Type == hp://schemas.xmlsoap.org/claims/UPN] (hp://schemas.xmlsoap.org/claims/UPN])
=> issue(Type = hp://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2005/05/identity/claims/nameidentier (hp://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2005/05/identity
/claims/nameidentier), Value = c.Value, Properties[hp://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2005/05/identity/claimproperties/format]
(hp://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2005/05/identity/claimproperties/format]) = urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:1.1:nameid-format:unspecied);

I swear everything was working, until some day I started to get the following errors:

Figure 3: Error When Using Federated Logon And Navigating To Oce 365 Management Portal

By giving the correlation ID to someone at Microsoft that is able to check it in the system logs, they most likely will be able to tell you what
would be wrong. In this case unfortunately I as not able to do that. The logs on my system did not given me any clue!
As I have another ADFS v3.0 system in my environment, I therefore decided to congure that ADFS instance with all default values for
DirSync and federation. After conguring all this, I was able to access Azure AD and Oce 365 through federated logon on my ADFS v3.0
box, but still not on my ADFS v2.0.

After comparing the federation trusts between ADFS v2.0 and Azure AD, and between ADFS v3.0 and Azure AD I saw the following
dierence:

For whatever reason, in the past I had changed the signature hash algorithm on the RP Trust On ADFS v2.0 For Azure AD/Oce 365 AND I
had forgoen about it. It took me some time to nd this one, but by just changing the signature hash algorithm on the RP Trust On ADFS v2.0
For Azure AD/Oce 365 from SHA-256 to SHA-1, everything started to work again! Yiiihhaaaaaa!

PS: this has NOTHING to do between the usage of ADFS v2.0 and ADFS v3.0. This was a conguration mistaken I made when playingaround
in the test/demo environment

If you used the default conguration, you will end up with a local service account (e.g. AAD_304599ae39) for the Azure AD Sync Service
and local security groups will be used (ADSyncAdmins, ADSyncOperators, ADSyncBrowse and ADSyncPasswordSet). This blog post helps
you change either one, local service account or local security groups, or both to use domain objects. This blog post assumes you want to
change both the service account and the security groups. In that case perform all steps. If you only want to change either one, then only
perform the corresponding steps.

Step 1: Create the new Azure AD Sync Service service account in AD


Example: ADCORP\SVC_R1_AADSyncSvc

Step 2: Create the new Azure AD Sync Service security groups in AD


Example: ADCORP\AADSyncAdmins
Example: ADCORP\AADSyncOperators
Example: ADCORP\AADSyncBrowse
Example: ADCORP\AADSyncPasswordSet

Step 3: Establish correct memberships


Example: ADCORP\AADSyncAdmins < make the Azure AD Sync Service service account in AD and any AD based user/admin account
that fully manage the AAD Sync Service a member of this group
QUESTION: do you know which other group needed to be created in FIM, but is not needed anymore in AADSync?

Step 4: Congure the new Azure AD Sync Service service account in AD with the correct user rights on the server with Azure AD Sync
Service installed
Give the new Azure AD Sync Service service account in AD the following user rights on the server with Azure AD Sync Service installed
Deny logon as a batch job
Deny logon locally
Deny logon through Terminal Services
Deny access to this computer from the network

(hps://jorgequestforknowledge.les.wordpress.com/2014/09/image245.png)
Figure 1: Required User Rights For The New Azure AD Sync Service Service Account In AD

If you do not know the password of the current Azure AD Sync Service Service Account stop the Microsoft Azure AD Sync (ADSync)
service, reset the password of the current Azure AD Sync Service Service Account, reenter credentials for the Microsoft Azure AD Sync
(ADSync) service and start the Microsoft Azure AD Sync (ADSync) service.
