Hybrid Identity with Windows AD and Azure AD

What you’ll learn

Understand Microsoft’s different directory services and their intended use.
Identify requirements to prepare a Windows AD domain for identity synchronization.
Deploy a hybrid identity solution using Azure AD Connect Sync.
Become familiar with tasks for ongoing management of a Hybrid Identity solution to maintain a secure and reliable environment.
Complete a case study in a hands-on lab that walks through steps to deploy a hybrid environment between Windows AD and Azure AD.

Hybrid Identity with Windows AD and Azure AD


An Azure AD Tenant and Subscription. An optional lab is included in order to create one, if needed.
A publicly routable domain name with access to public DNS records.
Azure AD P1 or P2 license. Included is a that shows how to use a trial license for those who qualify.
A mobile device with the Microsoft Authenticator App.
A basic understanding of Windows AD.
Knowledge of PowerShell is helpful but not required.


Are you starting your cloud journey and want to learn more about Azure AD? Are you an experienced IT Professional expanding your knowledge to include Microsoft’s cloud native identity solution? Are you interested in proving your cloud skills with one of Microsoft’s Azure certifications? Or, are you simply interested in learning how to synchronize your Windows AD identities to Azure AD? If any of the above apply, then this course is for you.This course starts with the basics, an understanding of Microsoft’s different Active Directory Solutions; Windows AD, Azure AD and Azure AD Domain Services. After that, we go deep into the requirements of implementing a Hybrid Identity solution that synchronizes users and devices from Windows AD to Azure AD. We then move onto common configuration and management tasks to support a secure and reliable Hybrid Identity solution.This course uses a combination of lectures to help the student comprehend key concepts followed by a hands-on lab to put the concepts in practice. The mix of lectures and labs helps the student understand concepts, and build confidence in applying the concepts in real-world situations.Hybrid Identity with Windows AD and Azure AD is intended to give students the knowledge to implement and maintain a hybrid identity solution with Azure AD. This course can also be used as a study guide, covering the skills measured in the following exams:AZ-900 Microsoft Azure FundamentalsDescribe identity, governance, privacy, and compliance featuresDefine Azure Active DirectoryDescribe the functionality and usage of Azure Active DirectoryDescribe the functionality and usage of Conditional Access, Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), and Single Sign-On (SSO)AZ-104 Microsoft Azure AdministratorManage Azure identities and governanceCreate users and groupsManage user and group propertiesManage device settingsConfigure Azure AD joinConfigure self-service password resetProvide access to Azure resources by assigning roles at different scopesAZ-303 Microsoft Azure Architect TechnologiesImplement Azure Active DirectoryAdd custom domainsImplement self-service password resetImplement Conditional Access including MFAConfigure verification methodsImplement and manage hybrid identitiesInstall and configure Azure AD ConnectIdentity synchronization optionsConfigure and manage password sync and password writebackConfigure single sign-onConfigure Azure AD Connect cloud syncUse Azure AD Connect HealthAZ-304 Microsoft Azure Architect DesignDesign authenticationRecommend a solution for single-sign onRecommend a solution for authenticationRecommend a solution for Conditional Access, including multi-factor authenticationRecommend a solution for a hybrid identity including Azure AD Connect, Azure AD Connect cloud sync and Azure AD Connect HealthRecommend a solution for user self-serviceThis course requires a lab that includes a Windows AD Domain and a Windows client. There is an option to create these in your own lab environment. Alternatively, a lab can be created in Azure for the purposes of this course. In most cases, an introductory Azure credit will cover costs to run the course lab in Azure. Steps are taken in the labs to keep costs at a minimum.Azure AD is a global service, and impending Hybrid Identity with Azure AD requires a publicly routable domain name to locate organizational resource in the domain. A publicly routable domain name with access to external DNS is required for this course. The public domain cannot be part of an existing Azure AD tenant. Public domain names can be acquired through a registrar for a nominal fee.
