Advice with AD Sync migration Azure AD Sync


Can someone please weigh-in on this to see if I have this right? Slight smile And please state if you have done this before ;)

To migrate from away from AD Sync to Azure AD Sync, do we:

  1. Stop On-Prem AD Sync service
  2. Disable the AD Sync service
  3. Login to Sophos Central
  4. Setup AzureAD Sync
  5. Reassigned the polices to the now-selected and synced Azure AD Groups
  6. Purge AD Sync data via this thread (Purge synchronized Active Directory data - Sophos Central Admin)
  7. Check everything works


Or, is it a case that the AD Sync data must be purged before establishing the Azure AD Sync?
