Connect and Integrate AD Identities On-Premise to Azure AD

In this topic, I would like to cover to connect and integrate  your existing AD accounts at home or office (premises) to Azure AD. This could benefit you to have single sign on to other applications such as office 365, dropbox, etc.

All you need is to install the Azure AD Connect Tool. you may download at this link here.

Follow this step below.

Step 1: At the welcoming wizard of Microsoft Azure Active Directory Connect, you need to check the box “I agree to the license terms and privacy notice” and click Continue



Step 2: You may use the express setting for faster installation. This is to get you understand on how you can connect to the Azure AD. In this express setting, the wizard will automatically discover your forest. In this example is NETOVERME.

To continue, click on Express Settings



Step 3: You need to input the Azure AD account. If you have multiple accounts in this Azure, you need to use the account which has “Global Admin” role.

In my example, I use “”. click Next to continue.



Step 4:  Then, you will ask the admin account in your premise AD forest. click Next.



Step 5:  Final step is to start installation.




Output Success: This is the screenshot that I captured from my Azure.

Type the command : Get-VMAzure -ServiceName ‘Nom-DC1’ -Name ‘NOM-DC1’. This is to verify the IP Address of the VM which were assigned by DHCP. Here the IpAddress value is

Then after that, we need to assign the IP address from (by DHCP) to static ip address

Type the command:

Get-AzureVM -ServiceName ‘Nom-DC1’ -Name ‘Nom-DC1 | Set-AzureStaticVNetIP -IPAddress ‘’ | Update-AzureVM


Then verify it by typing “get-azurevm -servicename ‘nom-dc1’ -name ‘nom-dc1’. You see the IP address have changed to 10.0.10 and the powerstate is ‘starting’
