Active Directory Groups Not Synchronizing into Office 365?

Posted on

Admins who may be fighting with Office 365 Directory Synchronization and not getting their on-premises Groups to synchronize into the cloud…this one is for YOU!  Directory Synchronization V2 now checks for the existence of the Active Directory displayName attribute and value before it will synchronize the group and its members into the cloud.

To get these groups to properly sync, simply go into Active Directory Users and Computers (ADUC) and populate the group with a displayName and force a DirSync run operation.  Once completed you will now find your Group listed in either the Microsoft Online Portal (MOP) for Security Groups or the EXO365 Exchange Control Panel (ECP) for Distribution Groups.
