In this blog post, I will cover how to force an AzureAD Sync from our on-premise AD Domain to the Azure Active Directory. For Reference, this is the error message which can be found in the O365 Admin Portal

Next, we need to connect to the Windows Server which is running the AzureAD Sync Service. For my ad.hypervlab.co.uk environment, I’ve created a dedicated server called ‘hypervlab-as01’ Once connected we will want to import the ADSync PowerShell Module.

Import ADSync Module

Import-Module "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Azure AD Sync\Bin\ADSync\ADSync.psd1"

ADSync Commands.

Before we Initiate a Force Sync lets check when the next sync time is scheduled:

Get-ADSyncScheduler

Notice that the bottom value “SyncCycleInProgress” is currently False

Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Initial -Verbose

After we have initiated the force sync we can check back to see what the Scheduler is doing:

As you can see the value “SyncCycleInProgress” has now changed to “True” if we swap back to the Office Admin Portal we can see that now the last directory sync was 3 minutes ago.
