Access Windows Servcies with MSC Commands.

Hello Wiki, sometimes I see some experts follow GUI pathes in order to access a service panel to configure or rearrange it. However, accessing them through RUN or start menu as a shortcut with just a simple command would make it quickly and easier to access.

Azure Active Directory ( From Microsoft Docs)

Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is Microsoft’s cloud-based identity and access management service. Azure AD helps your employees sign in and access resources in:

  • External resources, such as Microsoft Office 365, the Azure portal, and thousands of other SaaS applications.
  • Internal resources, such as apps on your corporate network and intranet, along with any cloud apps developed by your own organization.

You can use the various Microsoft Cloud for Enterprise Architects Series posters to better understand the core identity services in Azure, Azure AD, and Office 365.

Step-By-Step: Setting up AD FS and Enabling Single Sign-On to Office 365

This is a typical highly available setup into Office 365. Ideally this server will be installed as virtual servers on multiple Hyper-V hosts. Think about redundancy, not only in the virtual servers, but in the Hyper-V servers as well. Install one AD FS and one AD FS Proxy on one Hyper-V host and the other AD FS and AD FS Proxy on another Hyper-V host. This prevents loss of service from a hardware failure. Keep in mind that once you are using Single Sign-on with Office 365, you rely on your local Active Directory for authentication. Both video and printed steps have provided to ease your implementation of AD FS and SSO.
