“Proof of domain ownership has failed” Exchange Hybrid Configuration Wizard Failure #Office365 #MSExchange #ExchangeHybrid

“Proof of domain ownership has failed” Exchange Hybrid Configuration Wizard Failure –  if you are seeing this error even after your DOMAIN VERIFICATION / OWNERSHIP Status is OK in #Office365 you may need to do some extra effort. There are many articles related for the same problem but they all have different or similar scenario but not exactly. So I cam across a TechNet article the other day (I’ve followed many other blogs too) and there one simple step you need to make sure you copy the current TEXT for the Domain Proof.

Let say your Federation Trust keep on failing then you need to follow this

at the Exchange Shell run this

Get-FederatedDomainProof -DomainName

copy all the proof text  ending with ==

and create a new Text Record for that domain- Now if you run the wizard again it will run successfully



Creating and Deleting Sites in SharePoint Online #Office365

You can use the SharePoint Online Management Shell to efficiently manage users, sites, and organizations instead of using the SharePoint Online Administration Center.

What is the difference between SharePoint Online cmdlets and Office 365 cmdlets?

The set of SharePoint Online Management Shell cmdlets differs from the set of Office 365 for professionals and small businesses cmdlets. SharePoint Online Management Shell cmdlets manage SharePoint Online users and sites, whereas Office 365 cmdlets manage Office 365 level tasks such as domain, license, organization information, and services. They both manage users and groups. However, Office 365 users and groups are not only for SharePoint Online services, but also for Exchange Online and Lync Online Services.

Set up the SharePoint Online Management Shell environment for SharePoint Online global administrators

Perform the following:

  1. Install Windows PowerShell 3.0 from Windows Management Framework 3.0.
  2. Install the SharePoint Online Management Shell from the Microsoft Download Center.
  3. Click Start>All Programs>SharePoint Online Management Shell.
  4. Run Connect-SPOService. For example, Connect-SPOService -Url -credential, where:
    • Url is the URL of the SharePoint Online Administration Center.
    • Credential is the user name to which you want to grant access to the SharePoint Online Administration Center site.
  5. Try it out! For example, run Get-SPOSite to get a list of all sites.

You will see there are two new site created
