Azure AD Connect brings in new accounts defaulting username to @contoso.onmicrosoft.com

I posted this question last fall, but never got an answer and the thread is now locked. We have about 50 users in AzureAD, but about to bring in a few thousand for Office365. When I bring in the user initiially, it makes the primary username jsmith@contoso.onmicrosoft.com. When the users try to go login(hashes sync every 30 minutes) with their normal domain name of jsmith@contoso.com, they fail like the account is not there until I change the username to the match correct domainname from the drop-down menu of jsmith@contoso.com. Then the users can login fine.

Does anyone know of a way I can change this default to contoso.com, instead of having to manually change it for every user? It seems like I once found a location to change the primary domain name, but it still has no impact. Even a powershell script on changing the default suffix would be helpful at this point.

Thanks,

Hi Dave,

If you haven't already, you need to make that domain your primary domain. You can do this by going to Custom domain names and selecting "Make Primary." See article >

The article goes over the details for how to update all of the users as well.

You can ForceDelete a domain name in the Azure AD Admin Center or using Microsoft Graph API. These options use an asynchronous operation and update all references from the custom domain name like “user@contoso.com” to the initial default domain name such as “user@contoso.onmicrosoft.com.”

I have already done that and it did not help.

@DaveBryan-5712 What is the UPN in your On-prem AD? For instance, if it is user@contoso.local or user@contoso.xyz and the verified domain that you have added is contoso.com, you would need to add additional UPN suffix in you on-prem AD i.e., contoso.com and flip the UPN of all users from user@contoso.local or user@contoso.xyz to user@contoso.com. You can use below script for this purpose. Make sure you update DN of the OU after -SearchBase switch to the OU that contains all of your user accounts which are to be synced.
