Set up the Trust with Office 365

We must now open PowerShell to convert the domain we previously added to Office 365 to a Federated domain.  You’ll want to run Microsoft Online PowerShell as Administrator.

Type $cred=Get-Credential and hit Enter.  This cmdlet prompts you for credentials. Type your Office 365 administration account credentials.

Connect-MsolService –Credential $cred

The following command will convert your domain into a federated domain

Convert-MsolDomainToFederated –DomainName demos.local

If successful, you should see the message: Successfully updated ‘demos.local’ domain

If for any reason you need to go back to your previous standard domain, you have to type the following command:

Set-MSOLContextCredential -MSOLAdminCredentials $cred Convert-MsolDomainToStandard –DomainName demos.local –passwordfile password.txtSkipUserConversion $true

In case you need to update the ADFS connection, you have to type the following command:

Update-MsolFederatedDomain -DomainName demos.local

To configure an administrator user to not to expire the password, type the following command:

Set-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName -PasswordNeverExpires $true

After doing that, the next step is to Enable the Directory Synchronization. This will be explained in a future post 🙂
