I've signed up for an Office 365 trial and have set up a test lab server functioning as a local DC with a fictitious domain -- basically the idea was that I wanted to set up a test domain/lab that's separate from our production environment in order to test drive some office 365 features, particularly Directory Sync, and so I haven't added nor verified an additional domain in Office 365 other than the default one provided (with .onmicrosoft.com at the end) when initially signing up.
Now when I look to run the dirsync tool and get up to the part where it asks me to sign in with credentials for the Office 365 online account/tenant, after hitting next I receive the error message:
"An error occurred. Error Code: 15. Error Description: Identity synchronization is not yet activated for this company. To activate identity synchronization, click the Activate button on the Identity synchronization page in your Admin Portal..."
Now I go to the admin portal and then go to Users>Active users and then click "Set Up" for Active directory synchronization. In order to activate the Active Directory Synchronization, it mentions that I must add and verify a domain before being able to activate Active Directory Synchronization.
Since I basically don't have a domain I can add as a test with proper DNS records, etc... is there any way around this that will allow me to use the provided onmicrosoft.com domain as part of the trial to test out dirsync?
