After almost 2 years on production, the long waited multi AD forest synchronization is coming for Office 365.

For those who don’t already know, Office 365 can be synchronized with only ONE Active Directory Forest (multi domain within one forest is not a problem).

This limitation was source of lot of nightmare for company with multi AD forest. Initially, Microsoft delivered a sort of solution based on ForeFront Identiy Management and a dedicated connector but the implementation required involvement of Microsoft Services, which was not always possible.

So, we will finally have a solution with the coming multi forest synchronization feature, currently in preview – meaning beta.

Be a little be more patient to get it for production Smile
