Microsoft Azure Active Directory Sync Services (AADSync)

Fun news!  The next release of the synchronization engine is available for download from the Microsoft Connect site.   You can find a link to it at this neat little site:

The first release of the sync engine is simply a replacement for the DirSync appliance, so it is quite limited in functionality (the point of an appliance) but we can still get a glimpse into what is coming.

Of course the first thing I went looking for was the PowerShell coverage, and quickly found 58 commands in the new synchronization module.  Needless to say I’m super excited about this, and can’t wait to try wrapping it with some Desired State Configuration goodness.

I’ll post here as I explore the new PowerShell commands, as well as the sync engine itself.
