    Dear Michael,

    Thank you so much for the great session on office 365, adfs and dirsync.
    One question: You showed how to select specific ou’s. Is it sufficient to just select the users OU or are there some mandatory OU’s or/and containers?

    Kind regards,

    Wouter Wierenga

    • Hi Wouter, I just wanted to let you know that Michael is a little busy at the moment doing some training, but has said to me that he will do his best to answer your question when he can make the time.

      Hey Wouter,

      sorry for the delay in my answer. As Paul said, I have been away for a training almost the entire month of June.

      About your question: I’m not aware there are some mandatory OUs that you have to sync. So you should be OK!
