Forcing a local to azure AD sync

The syncing of local AD to Azure AD typically runs hourly. If you want to speed this up however, log onto the machine with the Azure Sync Utility on (if unknown, have a look at the user list for “On-Premises Directory Synchronization Service Account” and the Usename for that account will be Sync_SERVERNAME_5c52d34efa74@clientname.onmicrosoft.com. The SERVERNAME is the server where the azure sync tool is installed.)

Open a powershell window and run

Import-Module ADSync

and then run

Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Delta
