msemsbook-ver1The last year my buddy Kent Agerlund and me have been working on a brand new book about the Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite.

After hard work we were able to finally present our new book at the Midwest Management Summit earlier this week! So proud to be able to hold my third book finally in the hand 🙂

Luckily we were able to give away books to the attendees of the EMS Hands On Labs and several other attendees of the conference! I hope you will all like the book and that it helps you to successfully implement a standalone or hybrid EMS environment..

As part of book writing I used Azure Active Directory Connect to setup Directory Sync, ADFS and ADFS Proxy in a lab environment. While configuring I saw something helpful which I wanted to share with you. If I wanted to initiate a Sync with the good old DirSync I always ran the Configuration Wizard again, since the last step of the wizard was initiating a sync. Always fun with remembering the accounts and passwords. 😉

With Azure Active Directory a scheduled task is configured to run every 3 hours after the initial configuration. This means that you are able to start the task manually to initiate a sync. May save you some time waiting for objects to be synchronized to Azure Active Directory.
