Azure Active Directory Connect (AD Connect)with Single Sign On

 

This round, we are going to look at “Single Sign On” option. To do so, you’re require to prepare virtual machine

  • Windows Server 2012 R2 for federation server
  • Windows Server 2012 R2 for the Web Application Proxy
  • An SSL certificate for the federation service name you intend to use. (for example: fs.ms4u.local)

ADFS

Just to recap about AAD Connect :

AAD Connect streamlines the experience of extending your local directories into Azure AD so that fewer tools are required to install; it guides you through the entire experience so you are not required to read many pages of documentation; and it reduces the on-premises footprint because you are not required to deploy many servers.

AAD Connect is a single wizard that performs all of the steps you would otherwise have to do manually for connecting your Windows Server Active Directory to Azure Active Directory:

  • It downloads and installs pre-requisites like the .NET Framework, Azure Active Directory PowerShell Module, and Microsoft Online Services Sign-In Assistant
  • It downloads, installs and configures Dirsync (or AAD Sync), and enables it in your Azure AD directory.
  • It configures either the password sync or the single sign-on scenario, depending on which sign-on option you prefer, including any required configuration in Azure.
  • It checks to make sure that your configuration is working!

  • Enter a domain user account which has local admin right on the federation server

  • Create a group managed service account or use an existing domain user account

Lastly review the summary and click Install to deploy. AAD Connect will start to deploy

  • DirSync on existing VM that you have installed AAD Connect
  • Install and Configure ADFS
  • Install and Configure Web Application Proxy
  • Start the initial synchronization

That’s complete the entire process.
