Today Microsoft Cloud Quick Fix chats with Andrew Lowes from AzureTracks about Multi-factor Authentication in the Microsoft Cloud and recent finding that 78% of Microsoft 365 administrators do not have multi-factor authentication (MFA) activated!
In this installment of Microsoft Identity tidbits, Ryan of @MSCQF and I speak about Azure Active Directory and how it’s different from Windows Server Active Directory. We look at some of the confusion around hosting a virtual machine in Azure that is running Windows Server Active Directory and using Azure AD Connect to extend that into Azure Active Directory. Join us for a few minutes of fun and discovery as we explore the differences in Active Directory types.
Today we talk about what happens when Azure Active Directory Connect breaks. We discuss common causes, fixes, where to find some guidance, and some of the issues around a broken connection between your on-premises Windows Server Active Directory and Azure Active Directory. Join Ryan @MSCQF and myself for a short discussion and learn a bit more about our Microsoft tools in the hybrid world.
