ad connect interview questions

Where should you install Azure AD Connect?

It does not have to be on a primary DC, or any DC – it merely has to be able to get to a DC, and out to Azure AD, of course. In my demo, I only have one DC, and that is where I put AAD Connect.

Some of those attending the webinar spotted that I did nothing to ensure uniqueness of account names. And that’s OK for a demo where we don’t want to go into confusing detail. The issue of uniqueness is present in any identity management system, and by that I mean that somewhere, either manually or programmatically, at least one real world unique attribute will be required. I stress real world because just about every system will have a GUID or reference number of some kind – but we need to generate user-friendly email addresses, account names, logons and so on. It would be impossible to cover all the approaches to this problem here so here are two tips:

  • Always solve the problem at the source if you can. For example, if you enter users in an HR system first, and this is the authority on which provisioning decision are based, then this is a great place to establish one unique attribute (an “alias”) that can be used to generate all your email addresses, account names and logons. The alternative is a lot of work repeated as you try to solve the problem in each system.
  • Ask yourself how you do it now, or perhaps how you would like it to be done. Are you prepared to use an impersonal employee ID (easy, but ugly)? Can it be automated – in other words, is it acceptable to have an algorithm that would produce something like “JaneDoe, JaneWDoe, JaneHDoe, JaneDoe1, JaneWDoe1, JaneDoe2 and so on (fairly easy, but still a bit ugly)? Does it really require human intervention (check a default for uniqueness, then if necessary ask the operator to make a decision (harder but prettier)? Are you prepared to involve the user – “Well, John, I am sorry to say that JohnSmith has gone, but you can have JohnASmith, JSmith, JohnSm or JoSmit” (more effort, but makes happy users).
  • So when you know the answers to these, you can come up with a technical solution (or we can help you do so!)

    What about Azure AD Connect MIM sync?

    Let’s be quite clear that these are not connected. You can have MIM sync doing all your on-premises stuff, and it can be extended to connect to cloud services, including Azure AD. However, many organizations with MIM will still have AAD Connect doing the AD to AAD sync, this is the architecture that MS support, and that we recommend. Of course you can install AAD Connect with MIM nowhere in sight; and there are a few use cases where AAD Connect presents an alternative to MIM.
